Greenville, N.C. – Vidant Home Health and Hospice has been named a 2018 Hospice Honors recipient by HEALTHCAREfirst, the leading provider of Web-based home health and hospice software, billing and coding services, Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) surveys and advanced analytics.

Hospice Honors is a prestigious program that recognizes hospices providing the highest level of quality as measured from the caregiver’s point of view.

“We are delighted to be recognized as a 2018 Hospice Honors recipient,” said Debra Thompson, DNP, FNP-BC, vice president of care transformation for Vidant Health. “This is a true reflection of the compassion and quality of care provided by dedicated team members, providers and volunteers.

Award criteria were based on Hospice CAHPS survey results for an evaluation period of October 2016 through September 2017. Award recipients were identified by evaluating performance on a set of 24 quality indicator measures. Hospice Honors recipients include those hospices scoring above the HEALTHCAREfirst National Performance Score on 20 of the evaluated questions.
