Pine Pointe, Navicent Health has been named a 2019 Hospice Honors recipient by HEALTHCAREfirst, a leading provider of billing and coding services, CAHPS surveys and advanced analytics. Hospice Honors is a prestigious program that recognizes hospices providing the highest level of quality as measured from the caregiver’s point of view.
“We are honored to receive this recognition, because it is based on ratings provided by the caregivers and families that we serve. This recognition is a testament to our dedicated teammates at Pine Pointe, who are committed to providing compassionate, high quality care to hospice patients and their loved ones,” said Cindy Hill, Director of Pine Pointe, Navicent Health.
Award criteria were based on Hospice CAHPS survey results for an evaluation period of October 2017 through September 2018. Award recipients were identified by evaluating performance on a set of 24 quality indicator measures. Performance scores were aggregated from all completed surveys and were compared on a question-by-question basis to a National Performance Score calculated from all hospices contained in the HEALTHCAREfirst’s Hospice CAHPS database. Hospice Honors recipients - like Pine Pointe, Navicent Health - include those hospices scoring above the HEALTHCAREfirst National Performance Score on 20 of the evaluated questions.
