Throughout the year, Leapfrog will host free Town Hall Calls to provide ASCs and other stakeholders background information about the content of the Leapfrog ASC Survey. In addition, we often host Town Hall Calls on special topics such as Joining Leapfrog's NHSN Group for ASCs. Questions about Town Hall Calls can be directed to our Help Desk.
2019 Town Hall Calls
Leapfrog and NHSN Town Hall Call: Reporting to the OPC and the Leapfrog ASC Survey
ASCs are invited to the Leapfrog and NHSN Town Hall Call which will be co-hosted with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN). Presenters from Leapfrog and NHSN will review important information regarding the new Outpatient Procedure Component (OPC) within NHSN, and how to join Leapfrog’s NHSN Group for ASCs. Joining Leapfrog’s NHSN Group for ASCs is one of two options for authenticating your center for the purposes of requesting a security code to access the Online Survey Tool. In addition, Leapfrog will use data from the OPC for ASC Benchmarking Reports. The call will conclude with 20 minutes for Q&A.
Note: This call is only applicable to ASCs, including those that may not be currently reporting to NHSN via the OPC. Hospitals should refer to the instructions posted at http://www.leapfroggroup.org/survey-materials/join-nhsn and contact Leapfrog’s Help Desk with questions.
