Healthcentric to study home health care choices, outcomes

Posted 1/14/13

PROVIDENCE – Healthcentric Advisors was awarded a three-year, $835,000 research grant from the Agency on Healthcare Research and Quality to analyze consumers’ choices in selecting home health agencies and how the format of information provided affects their choices and outcomes.

Healthcentric Advisors will be partnering with Lifespan and Brown University to conduct this work

“This grant attests to Healthcentric Advisors’ growing national reputation for applied health care research,” says H. John Keimig, president and CEO at Healthcentric Advisors. “We have more than 15 years of experience measuring health care outcomes and assisting providers in improving health care quality, locally and nationally.”

In Rhode Island, Healthcentric Advisors has published information about home health agencies and other care providers since 1999, according to Rosa Baier, the principal investigator for the study. “We believe public reporting improves health care quality by changing provider and purchaser behavior,” Baier said. “This study will help us demonstrate that consumer-centric public health care reports can improve patients’ choices of providers and ultimately the quality of the care they receive.”
