(Beaver Dam) Hillside Home Care in Beaver Dam has been named a Top Agency of the HomeCare Elite, an annual recognition of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States that identifies the top 25 percent of Medicare-certified agencies. It is the 12th time in 14 years that Hillside has received the recognition. In addition, Hillside Home Care has also earned Top 500 Agency honors three times.
Tricia Weisnicht, Director of Senior Services with Marshfield Medical Center – Beaver Dam, says their clients, and their families, are the reason everybody comes to work each day committed to providing the highest quality care possible. Weisnicht points to her experienced, attentive and caring team members as the reason for Hillside Home Care’s ability to consistently rank among the HomeCare Elite. She says a common theme in feedback from families is how the Hillside staff consistently goes above and beyond what is expected.
The ranking is developed by a leading information technology company helping providers and payers simplify the administrative and clinical complexities of health care. 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.
Out of 8,818 agencies considered, 2,207 are recognized on the 2019 HomeCare Elite winners list overall.
