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.
The public comment period for the Proposed Changes to the 2018 Leapfrog Hospital Survey closed on December 27, 2017. A Summary of Changes for 2018, along with responses to public comments will be posted here in March.
