Description
  • Abstract

    The National Home and Hospice Care Survey (NHHCS) for 2000 examines home health agencies and hospices and their current patients and discharges. These surveys were designed to provide information for those who establish standards for, plan, provide, and assess long-term care services, both in the home and in inpatient settings. Data on agency characteristics were obtained through personal interviews with the agency administrators and include the number of home health and hospice patients served in the last 12 months, type of facility ownership (i.e., profit, nonprofit, government, other), Medicare and Medicaid certification, number and type of staff, and the hours they worked. Data on a sample of patients currently receiving home health and hospice care as well as a sample of discharges were obtained by interviewing staff persons most familiar with the care provided to these patients. Respondents were requested to refer to medical or other records whenever necessary. No patient was interviewed directly. Information for patients currently receiving services and discharged patients includes services provided and provider type, type of residence, referral source, medical diagnosis, type of care (home health or hospice), type of aids used (eyeglasses, dentures, walker, cane, oxygen, hospital bed, etc.), daily living activities that required assistance, and billing charges and expected payment source(s). The discharge diagnosis for discharged patients was also recorded. Demographic variables for both types of patients include sex, age, race, Hispanic origin, and marital status.

Sampled Universe
The sampling frame for the NATIONAL HOME AND HOSPICE CARE SURVEY, 2000 consisted of 15,451 agencies classified as agencies providing home health and hospice care. The universe of home health agencies and hospices was obtained from various national organizations and other sources.
Sampling
Only agencies providing home health or hospice care services to patients at the time of the survey were eligible to participate in the 2000 NHHCS. Of the 1,800 agencies in the sample, 1,478 (82 percent) were considered in-scope of the survey. Of the 322 out-of-scope agencies, 286 were not providing home health or hospice care services to patients at the time of the survey and 36 were duplicates of, or had merged with, other sampled agencies. Of the in-scope agencies, 1,425 (96 percent) agreed to participate.
Collection Mode
  • Per agreement with the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), ICPSR distributes the data files and text of the technical documentation for this collection as prepared by NCHS.
