Southeast Hospice Earns National Honor

SoutheastHEALTH’s Hospice service has been named a 2021 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.

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.

There are more than 5,300 hospices that participate in the Medicare program in the U.S. Of those, 298 U.S. hospices earned Honors status, along with only 12 in Missouri.
