The Amedisys Difference


Amedisys has been providing high-quality home health, hospice and palliative care since 1982. It’s one reason nearly 3,000 hospitals and 110,000 physicians nationwide partner with us to provide care in the home. But it isn’t the only reason. We also understand the challenges facing physicians, facilities, hospital systems and other provider organizations and work to meet your needs as well as your patients’ needs.

Here are a few of the reasons our team is uniquely qualified to serve yours:

Industry-Leading Quality

Our care centers meet rigorous quality standards. According to the most recent reports on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Care Compare website:

  • Amedisys Home Health leads the industry in quality of patient care, with an average 4.41 star rating. Nearly all of our care centers (95%) maintain a 4-star rating or above. 
  • Amedisys Hospice agencies exceed the national average in all nine out of nine Hospice Item Set scores that CMS uses to measure hospice quality.

Streamlined Referrals

Working with us is easy. You can refer a patient by phone, fax or online by using our fast-track referral forms or contacting a care center near you. With over 500 care centers nationwide, we bring expert care to patients' homes in 39 states. We’re committed to quick response times and prompt starts of care.

Personalized Care & Specialty Programs

Strong nurse-to-patient ratios help ensure patients receive personalized care and frequent visits when needed. Working closely with you, we develop plans of care that are tailored to each patient’s unique needs and goals. Patients with COPD, heart failure, diabetes, dementia and conditions that increase their risk of falling can also benefit from our hospice and home health specialty programs. Our customized care promotes improved quality of life and better outcomes for even your most complex patients.

Nationally Accredited

Amedisys is accredited by independent, nonprofit organizations, including the Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) and Community Health Accreditation Partner (CHAP). This demonstrates our commitment to patient care and maintaining high clinical standards.

Patient Education & Empowerment

We engage and empower patients to learn how to manage their condition through individualized patient goals, caregiver integration and comprehensive patient education.

24/7 Availability

Amedisys team members are available around-the-clock, including nights, weekends and holidays. This means greater peace of mind for you and your patients, and fewer after-hours calls to your office.

Timely Patient Updates

With busy schedules and large patient caseloads, strong communication is critical. We provide timely patient updates that fit your needs and help you manage patient care.

Smooth Care Transitions

Patients are particularly vulnerable as they transition from hospitals to post-acute care settings or the community. At Amedisys, we partner with you to ensure smooth care transitions and care coordination, which helps reduce avoidable rehospitalizations.

Interdisciplinary Approach

With Amedisys, patients receive care from a skilled team of professionals who work with one another and with you to meet each patient’s needs. Our team members are thoroughly screened and receive ongoing training so they can provide evidence-based in-home care.
