Each year, The Leapfrog Group’s team of researchers reviews the literature and convenes expert panels to ensure the Leapfrog Hospital Survey aligns with the latest science as well the public reporting needs of purchasers and consumers. Once a list of proposed changes is assembled for the next year’s survey, Leapfrog releases those changes for public comment. Comments are reviewed by Leapfrog’s team of researchers and used to further refine the survey before it is finalized.
We are grateful to those who take the time to submit comments each year. These comments bring enormous value to Leapfrog’s team and help ensure the survey is valuable to hospitals, purchasers, and consumers.
