Summit Orthopaedic Home Care honored for patient satisfaction

July 24, 2019

Summit Orthopaedic Home Care was recently recognized by Strategic Healthcare Programs as a 2018 Premier Performer.

This honor is given to home healthcare agencies for achieving an overall patient satisfaction score that ranks in the top 5 percent nationally. Summit is the only home healthcare agency in Delaware to have achieved this recognition for 2018.

“To be honored with this award for two consecutive years amongst more than 2,500 other home health providers is quite an achievement. I am very proud of our team and the dedication that they have to providing the highest level of care in the home,” said Eric Reinhold, Summit co-owner.

Not only are patient satisfaction scores high, but surgical outcomes are improved and healthcare costs are minimized. Summit’s 30-day hospital readmission rate for 2018 was 1.5 percent, significantly better than the Delaware home health agency average of 10.5 percent. These statistics have made Summit the preferred provider for many of the best surgeons and hospitals throughout the state.

“When we started Summit in 2015, we had a vision of bringing an elite level of care to the home in Delaware,” said Reinhold. “We began with a group of highly skilled therapists and nurses, quickly becoming the preferred provider for many of the state’s top orthopaedic surgeons. Over the past year, we have expanded into all three counties and now provide the same outstanding care outside of the orthopaedic population. We are very excited that we can bring this top level of home care for all conditions throughout the entire state.”

SHP is a leader in data analytics and benchmarking that drive daily clinical and operational decisions. It brings real-time data to post-acute providers, hospitals and ACOs to better coordinate quality care and improve patient outcomes. Summit team members are proud to partner with SHP to provide an improved value to healthcare for the patients, physicians and hospital systems of Delaware.

Summit provides skilled care in the home with nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy and medical social services. Patients who are in need of home healthcare may tell their surgeons or hospital discharge planners that they choose Summit.
