Mercy Health-Home Health named a top agency

2019 ABILITY HomeCare Elite

Home Health Lima was named a Top Agency of the 2019 HomeCare Elite, a recognition of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States. 

For 14 years, HomeCare Elite has annually identified the top 25 percent of Medicare-certified agencies and highlighted the top 100 and top 500 agencies overall.

The ranking is developed by ABILITY Network, a leading information technology company helping providers and payers simplify the administrative and clinical complexities of healthcare. It is sponsored by DecisionHealth, part of the H3.Group.

Ronda Lehman, president, Mercy Health - Lima credits our entire Mercy Home Health team and leaders with the agency’s ability to achieve recognition as one of the HomeCare Elite.

“Achieving HomeCare Elite status demonstrates the dedication and service that the members of the Home Health team show to our community every day,” Lehman said. “We are proud of this team and of the work they do to help our patients as they heal at home.”

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.
