Medicare has long provided online comparison tools for a range of healthcare providers, including doctors, nursing homes, hospitals, rehab facilities, and more. In August, Medicare added hospice to the list of provider types for which comparison data
is published. As expected, Avatar Home Health Agency leads the nation in 100% of published measures. Examples include:
All Medicare-certified hospice providers submit data about each patient to Medicare. Medicare has been aggregating that data so referring practitioners and consumers can have objective measures for making care choices. The measures Medicare chose to publish encompass some of the most important processes for ensuring that patient wishes are respected and for maximizing quality of life during a very important time of life. Medicare bases the current Hospice Compare percentages on data collected from October 1, 2015 to September 30, 2016. If you want your patients to receive hospice care that Medicare shows to be leading the nation, please refer to Avatar Home Health Agency.
