Proposed Addition to the 2014 Leapfrog Hospital Survey

November 13, 2013

The Leapfrog Group (Leapfrog) is proposing to add a measure of a hospital's nulliparous term singleton vertex (NTSV) cesarean section delivery rate to the Maternity Care section of the 2014 Leapfrog Hospital Survey. This NTSV cesarean section measure has been endorsed by the National Quality Forum and has been a part of The Joint Commission's Perinatal Care Measure Set since 2010. Beginning January 2014, the Joint Commission will require all hospitals with 1,100 or more births per year to report on this measure. View the complete proposal here.
