Myrtue Medical Center Hospice-Shelby County Community Health Department has been named a 2016 Hospice Honors recipient by Deyta 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.

“I’m proud of our team. Myrtue Hospice is the only hospice organization in the area to receive this honor. It shows our commitment to go above and beyond for clients and their families,” said Dr. Timothy Brelje, Hospice Medical Director.

Award recipients were identified by evaluating hospices’ performance on a set of 24 quality indicator measures. Individual hospice performance scores were aggregated from all surveys with a final survey status of “complete” for the evaluation period and were compared on a question-by-question basis to a national performance score calculated from all partnering hospices contained in Deyta Analytics’ Hospice CAHPS database.

“Hospice Honors is a landmark compilation of hospices that provide the best patient and caregiver experiences,” said Bobby Robertson, President and CEO of HEALTHCAREfirst. “I am extremely proud of Myrtue Medical Center’s Hospice Department for achieving this highest of honors and I congratulate them on their success.”

Deyta Analytics is a division of HEALTHCAREfirst, the leading provider of Web-based home health and hospice software, outsourced billing and coding services, and advanced analytics.
