Central Georgia Home Health Recognized as High Performer in Two-Year Project

Central Georgia Home Health Recognized as High Performer in Two-Year Project
Focused on Improving Quality of Care for Home Health Patients

MACON, GA (July 26, 2011) – Central Georgia Home Health (CGHH), a service of The Medical Center of Central Georgia, recently learned the results of the second year of a demonstration project in which it voluntarily participated. The project, implemented by The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and titled Medicare Home Health Pay for Performance (HHP4P), determined the impact financial incentives would have on improving quality of care for home health patients and the subsequent impact on overall Medicare costs. Savings are shared with agencies that either attained high levels of quality or made significant improvements in quality of care.

Two hundred and sixty-eight agencies, 26 of which were based in Georgia, participated in the demonstration project. CGHH was one of two agencies in Georgia and one of nine in the entire study to win a high performance award in five quality measures.

The demonstration project was conducted between January 2008 and December 2009, and included seven states.
