Medicare’s Home Health Compare data was first released to the public in July of 2015, The quality of patient care star rating summarizes 9 of the 29 quality measures reported on Home Health Compare. It provides a single indicator of an agency’s performance compared to other agencies. Assure’s initial data set in 2015 identified AHHC with 4 ½ out of 5, with the newest released dataset on April 12th, 2017 Assure sustained its unparallel rating of 4½, we believe this reflect our clinical best practice we strive to provide our patients, partners, and communities we serve.
