Amedisys Home Health in Campbellsville announced that it has been named to the 2011 HomeCare Elite top 500 home health agencies in the country for the third time.
Now in its sixth year, the HomeCare Elite is a compilation of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States. Winners are ranked by an analysis of performance measures in quality outcomes, quality improvement and financial performance. The HomeCare Elite identifies the top 25 percent of agencies and further highlights the top 100 and top 500 agencies overall.
The 2011 HomeCare Elite is the only performance recognition of its kind in the home health industry. The 2011 HomeCare Elite is brought to the industry by OCS HomeCare, the leading provider of homecare information, and DecisionHealth, publisher of the industry’s most respected independent newsletter Home Health Line and the Complete Home Health ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Coding Manual. The data used for this analysis were compiled from publicly available information.
“It is increasingly challenging to manage the cost/quality equation,” stated Amanda Twiss, CEO of OCS and My Innerview. “The 2011 HomeCare Elite winners demonstrate a commitment to providing patients with the best possible care while managing their business efficiently and effectively. This year, we updated our methodology to reflect industry focus and, based on this rigorous analysis, we congratulate Amedisys Home Health in Campbellsville on being one of the top home care agencies in the country.”

Our employees are focused on quality every day with every patient visit, and this recognition is a clear result of their efforts.”
