Leapfrog Invites Public Comment on the 2013 Leapfrog Hospital Survey


Each year, the Leapfrog Hospital Survey is updated to reflect new learning about quality, safety and efficiency measures and the best way to structure the Survey instrument. The Leapfrog Group is designing the 2013 Survey to incorporate the latest research on measures that have the greatest impact on patient safety, quality of care and saving costs.

The Leapfrog has updated the Proposed Changes to the 2013 Leapfrog Hospital Survey document that was originally posted on November 17th. Highlights of the changes include the following:

  • The pediatric inpatient CPOE Evaluation Tool will not be available for the 2013 Leapfrog Hospital Survey
  • The final deadline for the 2013 Survey will be December 31, 2013.
  • Leapfrog proposes to eliminate the score of “Response Not Required.”

As a results, the deadline to submit public comment has been changed to COB December 21, 2012. Leapfrog invites all stakeholders to comment on the proposed changes of the 2013 Leapfrog Hospital Survey.
