The Leapfrog Group announced a partnership with Newsweek to power Newsweek’s new health care ratings series, Best Health Care. Newsweek will publish a series on top-rated health care enterprises that excel in patient safety and quality. Ratings will be powered by The Leapfrog Group using data voluntarily submitted by health care facilities to the annual Leapfrog Hospital Survey and Leapfrog Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) Survey. Leapfrog will also deploy teams of experts and analysts to review available data and identify high performers.
The first rating in the series, “Newsweek’s Best Infection Prevention Products,” will be published on May 6, 2020 and will highlight products and solutions that are in use by leading hospitals to effectively combat the spread of infection in their facilities. The ratings will highlight companies whose products are most promising for helping patients and the health care workforce avoid infection. Future “Best Health Care” ratings from Newsweek will include a focus on maternity care, hospital and ASC safety, and others.
