Reports on Hospital Performance

Leapfrog Hospital Survey Report Series Issued in 2018

Each year, The Leapfrog Group asks every adult and free-standing pediatric general acute-care hospital in the U.S. to voluntarily complete the Leapfrog Hospital Survey.

The Leapfrog Group’s standards are updated annually to reflect the latest science and are designed to drive better outcomes for patients. Results are publicly reported by individual bricks-and-mortar hospital. Leapfrog uses the survey data to track and share hospitals’ progress on key issues of safety and quality. 

To present data on aggregate hospital performance on the Survey, Leapfrog has partnered with Castlight Health, an industry leader in providing tools to aid consumers in their health care decision-making. The reports below, released in 2018, feature data reported to the 2017 Leapfrog Hospital Survey.
