Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care has been named a 2014 Hospice Honors recipient, a prestigious award recognizing hospices providing the best patient care as rated by the patient’s caregiver.

Established by Deyta, this prestigious annual honor recognizes hospices that continuously provide the highest level of satisfaction through their care as measured from the caregiver’s point of view.

Deyta used the Family Evaluation of Hospice Care (FEHC) survey results from more than 1,700 partnering hospice agencies contained in Deyta’s FEHC database with an evaluation period of October 2012 through September 2013. Deyta identified Hospice Honors recipients by evaluating hospices’ performance on a set of eighteen satisfaction indicator measures. The set of questions included only indicator measures, omitting qualifying, leader and demographic questions. Individual hospice performance scores were aggregated for the evaluation period and were compared on a question-by-question basis to a national average score calculated from Deyta’s FEHC database.

Established by Deyta, this prestigious annual honor recognizes home health agencies that continuously provide the highest level of satisfaction through their care as measured from the patient’s point of view.

Deyta identified HHCAHPS Honors recipients by evaluating performance on a set of twenty satisfaction indicator measures; omitting qualifying, leader, and demographic questions.

Deyta holds a special recognition, HHCAHPS Honors Elite, to honor home health agencies scoring above the Deyta National Average on one hundred percent, or all nineteen, of the evaluated questions.
