Unique information that matters to you.

Completed by more than 1,800 hospitals annually, the flagship Leapfrog Hospital Survey collects safety, quality, and resource use information you can’t find anywhere else.

Empowering patients and purchasers to act on quality.

National and regional health plans use Leapfrog hospital results to power decision-support tools for their members, and regional coalitions use the data to activate their communities around safety and quality. Survey results are also used in the calculation of Hospital Safety Scores, and as the basis for value-based purchasing strategies.
