The Leapfrog Group released a report summarizing trends on the safety and quality of care for same-day surgical services nationwide: Same-Day Surgery in the U.S.: Findings of Two Inaugural Leapfrog Surveys. In this inaugural effort, Leapfrog gathered data on several important areas of outpatient care including basic facility information; medical, surgical and clinical staff; volume and safety procedures; patient safety practices; and patient experience.
While aggregate findings are currently available in a national report for the public, individual facilities that completed the Surveys received confidential benchmarking reports illustrating their performance. Beginning with the 2020 Surveys, Hospital Outpatient Department (HOPD) and Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC) Survey Results will be publicly reported by facility on The Leapfrog Group’s website. Results will be published in a way that allows consumers, purchasers, and payors to compare ASC and HOPD performance side by side. The preliminary findings in this national report are based on data voluntarily submitted by 321 ASCs and 1,141 HOPDs across the country that had responded either to the Leapfrog ASC Survey or the Leapfrog Hospital Survey by August 31, 2019.
