A State and National Leader in Quality Care
Medicare provides a very important tool that allows doctors to compare the performance of all home health agencies objectively. They publish objective outcome measures in a way that allows people to compare the performance of different home health agencies. Of all the measures Medicare publicly reports for Ultimate Home Health Care, we beat both state and national averages in 91% of measures (Medicare data updated 3/13/09).
Compared to other Medicare-certified home health agencies in Illinois, our patients are far less likely to require urgent, unplanned medical care (0% of Ultimate patients compared to an Illinois average of 20%). Additionally, they are:
- Twice as Likely to Get Better at Taking Their Medicines
- 83% More Likely to Improve Bladder Control
- 52% More Likely to Improve with Shortness of Breath
- 21% Less Likely to Require Hospitalization While They Are Home Health Patients
While Medicare certifies us, we've also earned joint commission accreditation. This means we allow the joint commission to conduct routine, unannounced inspections of our services just like hospitals. The commission provides expert, third-party verification of top-quality agencies. It ensures that these establishments have good and effective policies in place, follow their policies, deliver quality care, and continuously strive for improvement in the future.
