Orthopaedic Home Health, LLC, started via a collaborative effort by three gentlemen who are well-known and respected within the therapy and medical/DME field: Jason Hedrick, Curt Hale, and Phillip Smith. Orthopaedic Home Health opened its doors with their first patient on March 22, 2012. What began with three total patients have since grown to an average of 54 patients per month. Orthopaedic Home Health is Medicare and Medicaid certified.
Eventually, the Agency partners sought accreditation to signify their belief that quality patient care was their main priority. Therefore, accreditation was sought via CHAP (Community Health Accreditation Partner). Site visits were performed by CHAP auditors in June and July 2015. CHAP certification was granted effective June 18, 2015 through June 18, 2018. The Administrator/DON continues to work with the staff on OBQI and QAPI programs to ensure the achievement of the highest level of quality patient care and patient satisfaction. Orthopaedic and Medical Home Health has been successful in maintaining their quality patient care as evidenced by their CMS Quality of patient care STAR rating of 3 ½ stars (compared to national average of 3 stars and Missouri average of 3 ½ stars). In addition to our CMS Star Rating, we have maintained our FAZZI HHCAHPS Patient Satisfaction Aware of Distinction for 2015 and 2016. This award is presented to HH organizations that have demonstrated superior performance in patient satisfaction during the previous year.
Home health care offers a wide range of health care services that can be given in your home for an illness or injury. Most payor sources require persons meet the criteria of homebound status. Home health care is usually less expensive, more convenient, and just as effective as care you get in a hospital or skilled nursing facility (SNF). Home health care helps you get better, regain your independence, and become as self-sufficient as possible. (retrieved https://www.
