NEWARK — Delaware Hospice has achieved recognition by earning four rings in the 2023 Quality Connections Program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization.
Quality Connections is structured around four fundamental pillars that are represented by four rings: Education, Application, Measurement and Innovation.
Participants are required to achieve milestones within defined time frames by participating in activities such as quarterly data reporting and benchmarking, educational courses, case studies and engagement on emerging issues — all of which serve to promote high-quality care delivery and service excellence.
Achievement in the program is measured by completing activities in the four foundational areas, culminating in the closure of up to four rings.
By participating in Quality Connections, Delaware Hospice has earned the highest achievement by closing four rings and has enhanced its quality improvement program, plus is up to date on the newest and best practices in serious illness and end-of-life care.
All four Delaware Hospice locations (Newark, Dover, Milford and Glen Mills, Pennsylvania) achieved the four rings.
