Serenity Home Health of Wichita, Kansas Designated 2013 HomeCare EliteTM
Serenity Home Health of Wichita, KS has been awarded HomeCare Elite status for 2013 by an independent, non-partisan research group, based upon publicly available information.
Serenity Home Health LLC of Wichita, KS has been recognized as one of the top 2013 HomeCare EliteTM. The National Research Corporation (NRC) in partnership with DecisionHealth awards this prestigious designation to only the top 25% of home health care agencies in the United States. Serenity Home Health, the only locally owned and operated company to make the list, continues to build on its reputation for quality and patient satisfaction as a repeat winner of the prestigious award.
The annual review of agencies is conducted by NRC’s OCS HomeCare, an industry leader in compiling and analyzing results oriented data. Winners are determined by an analysis of five performance measures including:
- Quality of care
- Quality improvement and consistency
- Patient experience
- Process measure implementation
- Financial performance
The performance of each service provider in the various domains is then compared with the performance of other similar agencies nationwide. The final overall score for each agency is calculated in a way that acknowledges the overriding importance of quality of care. This emphasis on patient care is a confirmation of the mission of Serenity Home Health.
“We are particularly proud of this award that is the result of an impartial evaluation of publicly available information from Medicare/CMS,” said Lars Stamp, President/CEO of Serenity Home Health. “We receive positive feedback from our patients and referral sources every day. And certainly, I like to tell our management team and our health care professionals that they are absolutely the best. But it is much more meaningful to have such reputable research organizations give us that public recognition.”
Stamp is quick to give credit to Serenity Administrator Michelle Morales. “Michelle is probably the most astute operations person an organization could ask for. She is experienced, driven to succeed, tenacious with the important details and inspiring to be around. She is the center of a great team and we are really lucky to have her captaining the ship.”
OCS HomeCare’s report also provides information to guide the strategic planning for both the clinical services and the administrative support in the agencies. As Serenity Home Health has proven since its inception in 2005, it does not rest on its laurels, but continuously strives to improve its home care services. These excellent services already include:
- 24 hour nursing support by Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses
- Supportive services such as assistance with bathing, medications and other personal care
- Physical and occupational therapies
- IV therapy for pain management, antibiotics and chemotherapy
- Wound management
- Chronic disease management
The care team at Serenity Home Health regularly collaborates with other community resources such as pharmacies and clinics. The goal is always to support the patient in living as independently as possible while maintaining a good quality of life. Enlisting the cooperation of family members and educating them on the role they can play is another important part of the service.
It is a commitment to excellence in patient care that drives Serenity Home Health. Management and clinicians all understand that direct service to individuals is best supported by an efficient, cost effective administration. Although this is a time of significant change and uncertainties in the health care industry, the results of the OCS review and HomeCare EliteTM award confirm Serenity Home Health’s ability to balance excellence in patient care with cost effective practices.
