The Visiting Nurse Association of the Treasure Coast (VNA) and VNA Space Coast were both recognized by HomeCare Elite recently as a Top Agency, a recognition of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States. HomeCare Elite has annually identified the top 25 percent of Medicare-certified agencies and highlights the top 100 and top 500 agencies overall. This is the eighth year VNA Space Coast has been recognized as a Top Agency, and the fourth year for VNA of the Treasure Coast.
Winners are ranked by an analysis of publicly available performance measures in quality outcomes, best practice (process measure) implementation, patient experience (Home Health CAHPS®), quality improvement and consistency, and financial performance. In order to be considered, an agency must be Medicare-certified and have data for at least one outcome in Home Health Compare.
