Quality Results of Home Health Care Providers

Homecare SearchWith hundreds of home health care agencies available in Michigan, it can be a challenge for physicians and consumers to understand the differences in quality between providers. A review of CMS quality data for the 134 participating home health care agencies that deliver care to my zip code,48183, finds that on average these home health care providers are reporting on 11 measures. Quality results on those measures do vary from agency to agency with some receiving a 100% score (all measures above national averages) and others receiving a 0% score.

Comparison to national average is just one way to understand which home health care provider is right for you. Here is a list of home health care providers that provide services (according to the service area they have defined for Medicare participants) in my hometown - Trenton, MI that are the most successful for their indicators as compared to national average:
