Since 2004, HealthInsight has recognized Medicare-certified home health agencies, nursing homes, and hospitals for demonstrating high quality health care and excellence in performance on publicly-reported quality of care measures. Quality of care measures come from patient information that is collected from these organizations and provide one piece of information that consumers can use to decide how well providers care for their patients.
Beginning in 2009, HealthInsight also began recognizing physician office practices for their effective use of health information technology, patient care management practices, as well as reporting of and exemplary performance on nationally-recognized quality of care measures.
Awards are presented each year to outstanding physician office practices, hospitals, as well as home health agencies and nursing homes.
