Interim HealthCare of Hartford, Inc.  Named as a Top Agency of the 2014 HomeCare Elite. 
 
Farmington, CT, November 2014 —Interim HealthCare of Hartford, CT today announced that it has been named a Top Agency of the 2014 HomeCare Elite, a recognition of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States. Now in its ninth year, the HomeCare Elite identifies the top Medicare-certified agencies and winners are ranked by an analysis of publicly available performance measures in quality outcomes, best practice (process measure) implementation, patient experience (Home Health CAHPS®), quality improvement and consistency, and financial performance. In order to be considered, an agency must be Medicare-certified and have data for at least one outcome in Home Health Compare.
 
The award is sponsored by OCS HomeCare by National Research Corporation, the leading provider of home health metrics and analytics, and DecisionHealth, publisher of the most respected independent newsletter in the home care profession, Home Health Line.
