Visiting Nurse Associations (VNAs) and hospital-based home health care agencies (HBHHAs) were used to explore the impact of organizational environments on agency services.
Disproportionate stratified random sampling, based on type and region of agency, was used to select the agencies.
Seventy-three percent (120 HBHHAs and 156 VNAs) responded to the mail survey.
Differences were found in the environments of the two types of agencies in funding and referral sources, amount of competition, accreditation by external bodies, and involvement in professional organizations.
