The Leapfrog Group is a voluntary program that is aimed at mobilizing employer purchasing power to alert America’s health industry that big leaps in health care safety, quality and customer value will be recognized and rewarded. Among other initiatives, Leapfrog works with its employer members to encourage transparency and easy access to health care information as well as rewards for hospitals that have a proven record of high quality care.
You can search the Leapfrog hospital information by zip code, city, or state and view each hospital’s progress at implementing the Leapfrog-recommended quality and safety practices by looking at the circles in the chart and comparing them to the explanation on every page. Hospital participation in the Leapfrog survey process is strictly voluntary. The website also shows hospitals that were invited to complete the Leapfrog Hospital Survey but decided not to do so.
