BCH HomeCare Elite Award for 2019
November, 21, 2019

The Beatrice Community Hospital Home Health Department has been named a HomeCare Elite Top Agency for the third year in a row.


HomeCare Elite is a recognition of top-performing home health agencies in the United States. For 14 years, HomeCare Elite has annually identified the top 25 percent of Medicare-certified home health agencies. Out of 8,818 agencies considered, only 2,207 are recognized on the 2019 HomeCare Elite winners list overall.


The ranking is developed by ABILITY Network, a leading information technology company helping providers and payers simplify the administrative and clinical complexities of healthcare. It is sponsored by DecisionHealth, part of the H3.Group.


“We’re pleased to recognize BCH Home Health for exemplifying best practice in patient care,” said Christine Lang, senior director for ABILITY Network. “BCH home health professionals have demonstrated exceptional commitment to care quality and the patient experience.”


Director of BCH Home Care Shelley Whitwer credits teamwork and a passion for caring for the community with the agency’s ability to achieve HomeCare Elite recognition for three consecutive years.


 "Our staff truly cares about the patients we serve in our community,” Whitwer said.


“Congratulations to Beatrice Community Hospital from all of the staff at DecisionHealth,” said Marci Geipe, product manager for Decision Health. “Your leadership and staff have placed a premium on the patient care your agency provides as showcased by your quality outcome scores. The entire community benefits from the compassion that your staff shows toward your patients, leading to cost savings for the entire healthcare system.”


HomeCare Elite agencies are determined by an analysis of performance measures in quality outcomes, best practices implementation, patient experience (HHCAHPS), quality improvement and consistency, and financial health. In order to be considered, an agency must be Medicare-certified and have data for at least three outcomes in Home Health Compare.
