Hospice HonorsWe are pleased to announce that Hosparus Health has been named a 2019 Hospice Honors recipient by HEALTHCAREfirst, a leading provider of billing and coding services, CAHPS surveys and advanced analytics. This prestigious annual award recognizes the top hospices in the country that continuously provide the highest level of quality as measured from the caregiver’s point of view.

“We are excited to recognize the 2019 Hospice Honors recipients for their hard work and dedication to providing exceptional care,” said Misty Skinner, Executive Vice President of Services at HEALTHCAREfirst. “I congratulate Hosparus Health on its success in achieving this highest of honors.”

Awards were based on Hospice CAHPS survey results during the period of October 2017 through September 2018. To be eligible for the award, hospices must be current partners with HEATLHCAREfirst and had at least one complete survey returned in each quarter of the evaluation period.

Award recipients were evaluated on a set of 24 quality indicator measures. Individual scores were aggregated from all surveys and compared with a national performance score calculated from all partnering hospices in the HEALTHCAREfirst Hospice CAHPS database. Hospice Honors recipients are those that scored above the HEALTHCAREfirst national performance score on 20 of the questions.

“Receiving this national award is such an incredible honor,” said Phil Marshall, Hosparus Health President and CEO. “This special recognition demonstrates that our experienced and compassionate team truly is fulfilling our mission — improving quality of life by providing the very best care to our patients and their families across Kentucky and Indiana.”
