Hospice of Randolph County Named 2017 Hospice Honors “Elite” Recipient
Hospice Honors recognizes hospices providing the highest level of satisfaction.
HEALTHCAREfirst, the leading provider of Web-based home health and hospice software, outsourced billing and coding services, and Deyta Analytics, recently announced the recipients of the fifth annual Hospice Honors, a prestigious program that recognizes hospices providing the highest level of quality as measured from the caregiver’s point of view. The official list of recipients was unveiled last week at the Welcome Reception of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization’s Management and Leadership Conference in Washington, DC. Hospice of Randolph County was named as a recipient of the 2017 Honors program with “Elite” status.
“This prestigious annual review recognizes hospices that continuously provide the highest level of quality as measured from the caregiver’s point of view,” said J. Kevin Porter, President and CEO of HEALTHCAREfirst. “I am proud to call these hospices clients of HEALTHCAREfirst and Deyta Analytics, and anticipate seeing even more of our customers recognized in years to come.”
Award criteria were based on Hospice CAHPS survey results for an evaluation period of October 2015 through September 2016. In order to receive the award, hospices must have partnered with Deyta Analytics, a division of HEALTHCAREfirst, as their survey partner and must have had at least one complete survey returned in each quarter of the evaluation period. Award recipients were identified by evaluating hospices’ performance on a set of 24 quality indicator measures. Individual hospice performance scores were aggregated from all surveys with a final survey status of complete for the evaluation period and were compared on a question-by-question basis to a national performance score calculated from all partnering hospices contained in Deyta Analytics’ Hospice CAHPS database.

Your actions can only help." This training is a wonderful opportunity for adults of any age to learn the proper technique for utilizing Hands-Only CPR. This information is ideal for anyone working or volunteering with the general public. The educational session is free of charge and open to the public.

These volunteers spend time sitting with patients, reading to them or even watching a favorite TV show together.

The love and care they give to these patients and families is indispensable.” Volunteer opportunities also exist for those interested in office work, practical work (possible handyman work on our campus), maintaining outside flowers and assisting with landscaping needs.
Those interested in volunteering in one of these areas are required to attend a special one-day training event on Friday, February 24th OR Saturday, February 25th in order to learn more about the organization and valuable role of volunteers.
