Our friend Bob Fazzi and his team just released their chart showing the national Home Health Compare scores for June, 2007, and their estimate of the 80th Percentile scores.

How are you doing compared to these national numbers?

We have heard some interesting debate about the value of using Home Health Compare scores as a source of competitive advantage when selling your home care services to physicians. One viewpoint is that having the data to support your message about quailty of care can be persuasive. The other viewpoint that we have heard from physicians is that they don’t trust the data, they think agencies can game the system, and that it’s not a good measure of home health quality.

What do you think? Do you have any evidence that physicians or hospital discharge planners pay attention to your Home Health Compare scores?
