Agency receives award for the third year in a row

LEXINGTON, N.C. (June 1, 2017) – For the third year in a row, Hospice of Davidson County has been named a 2017 Hospice Honors Elite recipient by Deyta Analytics, a division of HEALTHCAREfirst, the leading provider of Web-based home health and hospice software, outsourced billing and coding services, and advanced analytics.

The Hospice Honors Elite program recognizes hospices providing the highest level of quality as measured from the caregiver’s point of view. Hospice of Davidson County is the only Hospice Honors Elite recipient serving patients in Davidson County, one of two in the Piedmont Triad, and one of just 74 Elite recipients nationwide.

“Hospice Honors is a landmark compilation of hospices that provide the best patient and caregiver experiences,” said J. Kevin Porter of HEALTHCAREfirst. “I am extremely proud of Hospice of Davidson County for achieving this highest of honors and I congratulate them on their success.”

Award criteria were based on Hospice CAHPS survey results for an evaluation period of October 2015 through September 2016. Award recipients were identified by evaluating performance on a set of 24 quality indicator measures. 

“It’s an honor for Hospice of Davidson County to, once again, be named a Hospice Honor Elite agency,” said Hospice of Davidson County CEO, Laura Owen. “This national recognition is a true testament of quality of care and service we provide our community.” 

Hospice of Davidson County Medical Director, Dr. Jennifer Davis said, “Achieving Hospice Honors Elite demonstrates the commitment of our staff in providing a supportive and caring environment for our patients and their families, while providing more meaningful moments for all.”
