What's in a Name

Many people ask us where our name comes from (and if there's any relation to the toy company). No, we're not big fans of frogs (and there's no relation to the toy company). Our name comes from the idea of taking giant leaps forward.

Health care typically moves at an iceberg-like pace, but here at Leapfrog, we're about big change—change that has the potential to impact thousands, if not millions of people.

A great example of a giant leap foward is the work we've been doing to reduce the rate of early elective deliveries. In just five years, we've gone from a national rate of 17% to 2.8%. That means that thousands of babies are getting a better start to life.

And that's what we call a leap.
