Partners Home Care Scores in Top Tier in National Medicare Demonstration Project
Date:2/22/2010

BOSTON, Feb. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Partners Home Care (PHC), a leading provider of home health, hospice and private care services, has been recognized as one of the  top performing agencies by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) in a recently concluded seven state project. The project was designed to measure the benefits and possible savings of utilizing home health care more for Medicare patients. The project resulted in $15.4 million dollars in savings while meeting key quality goals, suggesting effective use of home health services nationally could have significant savings to Medicare and Medicaid while providing more effective disease management.

"This project has major implications for patients with chronic conditions such as congestive heart failure, pulmonary disease, and diabetes that often represent the most complex and costly group of conditions to care for. As the occurrence of these diseases tends to increase with age, these numbers are predicted to rise as the growing number of baby boomers approach retirement," said
