Today, every hospital and ASC across the country received a letter signed by four influential national employer groups—the Health Transformation Alliance, ERISA Industry Committee, National Alliance of Health Care Purchaser Coalitions, and the Business Group on Health—requesting their participation in the annual Leapfrog Hospital Survey and Leapfrog Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) Survey.
The Leapfrog Hospital Survey and the Leapfrog ASC Survey are employer-driven initiatives to collect important information on quality and safety not available from other sources. The Surveys ask hospitals and ASCs about their performance on measures of key importance to employers, like rates of C-sections, never events, pediatrics, practices to prevent medication errors and safety of common surgical procedures. Leapfrog, an independent, employer-driven nonprofit, works with national experts to ensure the use of nationally standardized, evidence-based measures of health care performance and extensively verifies the data submitted before making it publicly available on its website.
Results from the 2021 Surveys will be publicly available this summer; current Survey results can be found at www.ratings.leapfroggroup.org.
