HomeCare Elite® is an annual recognition of the top performing Medicare-certified home health agencies in the United States. This market-leading recognition program, from ABILITY® Network and DecisionHealth, names the top 25% of home care providers in key home health quality and performance measures. The Top 100 and Top 500 agencies nationwide receive special honors through HomeCare Elite. The HomeCare Elite winners list is announced annually at the NAHC conference in October.

How is HomeCare Elite Calculated?

The HomeCare Elite ranking utilizes publically available data from Home Health Compare and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Cost Reports. To be included in the annual calculation a home health agency must be Medicare-certified and have data for at least three outcome measures in Home Health Compare. We analyze five domains of performance:

  1. Quality of Care
  2. Quality Improvement and Consistency
  3. Patient Experience (HHCAHPS)
  4. Process Measure Implementation
  5. Financial Performance
