What happens when a home health care provider doesn’t have a home address?
- by admin
Health care proxy service provider and FLORIDA health health officials are asking the public to share their stories about home health health care.
On Thursday, health officials announced the launch of an online survey.
They say the survey will be used to help inform the public about the services they receive from home health agencies.
The survey is not aimed at obtaining financial compensation, but is meant to serve as a first step to ensure that home health service providers in Florida are fully informed about their relationships with home health.
“It’s important that we hear from our community so that we can all have confidence in what our health care providers are doing to provide the highest quality of care,” said FLORID HEALTH CONSERVATIVE CHRIS JOHNSON, Executive Director, FLORIDE HEALTH CARE PROXIMITY ASSOCIATION.
“It’s really important that the public knows what’s going on with their health care.”
For those seeking to report home health services, health care proxies will have to complete an online questionnaire about the service provider, home health agency, and their relationship with the service.
Health care providers will also have to provide an updated report about their overall services.
If the survey indicates the service is providing the best care, the provider may receive a bonus reward.
If the service isn’t providing the highest level of care, health providers will be required to provide a list of reasons why the service didn’t meet expectations.
Health providers who don’t provide their list of complaints will be subject to additional penalties.
The survey will take two to four weeks to complete, and will be available for residents of the state of Florida.
Health insurance companies will be allowed to participate.
