Why do the home health quality measures emphasize "getting better?"

The quality measures are based on Medicare-covered home health care, which is usually short-term care with the goal of rehabilitation. Home health care is usually provided to people who may have had surgery, an illness, or an injury. In most cases, it is hoped that they will get better, regain independence, and become as self-sufficient as possible.
