CHCS Home Health Services Designated Top 25% in Nation

Community Health and Counseling Services (CHCS) announced that it has been named to The Home Care Elite™ for 2016. This honor recognizes CHCS as one of the most successful home care providers in the United States based on an analysis of performance measures in quality outcomes, quality improvement, and financial performance. Only 25 percent of the home health agencies in the country achieve this ranking. The Home Care Elite™ list is compiled and published by OCS HomeCare, the leading national provider of homecare informatics and Decision Health, publisher of home care’s most respected independent newsletter Home Health Line.

"The 2016 HomeCare Elite™ winners continue to demonstrate a commitment to providing their patients with the best possible care while performing at the highest level," said Amanda Twiss, CEO of OCS HomeCare. "We congratulate Community Health and Counseling Services on being one of the top home care agencies in the country. In addition, we salute all forward-thinking providers who are already working on measuring and improving their performance using the OASIS-C outcomes and process measures and HH-CAHPS results. This important data will also be used in identifying The HomeCare Elite in the future."
