Reports on Hospital Performance

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. In the first half of 2017, we will be releasing a monthly series of reports on the results of the 2016 Leapfrog Hospital Survey. See the current reports and those in progress below.
