The Leapfrog Group is pleased to announce that it is hosting the first National Health Care Ratings Summit, to be held December 6 – 7 in Arlington, Virginia. The Summit, produced by Global Health Care, LLC. brings together leaders from prominent ratings organizations with employers and other purchasers of health care, as well as health system leaders responding to ratings.
These health care ratings leaders will come together for the first time on a single stage, including Top Doctors, U.S. News & World Report, Consumer’s Checkbook, Healthgrades, Consumer Reports and Amino, as well as Leapfrog. The Ratings Roundtable will be moderated by health care journalist Jayne O’Donnell of USA Today.
Also featured are sessions and talks with leaders from health systems and physician practices, discussing the accuracy of ratings and best practices for improving performance. Employer leaders will discuss how they use ratings to help employees, and leading experts in public communication will offer advice on best practices for motivating and engaging consumers through ratings.
The National Health Care Ratings Summit will take the place of Leapfrog’s Annual Meeting that has traditionally been held as a one-day event in early December. Instead, we are hosting a two-day summit that will promote even more engagement with and education for our most important stakeholders. As has always been the case with Leapfrog’s Annual Meeting, the Summit will be followed by Leapfrog’s Top Hospitals awards dinner to recognize the highest performing hospitals on the Leapfrog Hospital Survey. All summit attendees are welcome and encouraged to register and join us for the Top Hospital dinner Thursday evening.
