HCR Home Care Again Named a Top Performing Home Care Agency in the U.S.

Jan. 30, 2017 — HCR Home Care remains among the best performing home health care providers in the country, according to an independent review.
HCR in the North Country region has been named a Top Agency of the 2016 HomeCare Elite®, a recognition of the top-performing home health agencies in the U.S. The annual HomeCare Elite™ winners list, a compilation of the most successful home care providers, again named HCR among the top 25 percent of more than 9,000 agencies in the United States. HCR provides care for people in Clinton, Essex, Franklin, St. Lawrence, Hamilton, Warren and Washington counties.

The company earned this recognition based on a host of performance measures, such as quality of care, quality improvement and consistency, patient experience, process measure implementation and financial performance.
“HCR Home Care is very pleased and proud to continue to be recognized nationally for our outstanding clinical outcomes and other key performance measures,” said HCR President Elizabeth Zicari. “Our clinicians, leadership team and staff deserve this national recognition for their unwavering commitment to improving people’s health across the region.”

For more than ten years, HomeCare Elite has annually identified the top 25 percent of Medicare-certified agencies and highlights 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; and sponsored by DecisionHealth, publisher of: Home Health Line, The Complete Home Health ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Coding Manual and The Home Health Coding Center. The list is compiled using publicly available data from Home Health Compare and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
