Why the Leapfrog ASC Survey Matters to Purchasers
“With the convenience and growing use of ambulatory surgery centers, patients are able to access cost effective alternatives to inpatient care. But how do employers, employees and family members know which outpatient facilities to choose from? The Leapfrog Group just made this a little easier. In addition to offering public reporting for hospital quality and safety nationwide, the same information will be available on outpatient care. This matters because patients need guidance in finding the safest facilities with the highest quality care -- which benefits employers and the people they care about the most.” - Cheryl Larson, President and CEO, Midwest Business Group on Health
