We’re honored to dedicate the Judie Burrows Education Institute in honor of Steve Burrows’ mother, who was a healthy, active 69-year-old when she went for routine hip surgery – but was plagued with countless medical errors that eventually stole her life. The Leapfrog Judie Burrows Education Institute is the educational arm of Leapfrog and allows us to expand our learnings to a wider audience than ever before and helps prevent tragedies like those that befell Judie’s family.

Programming within the Judie Burrows Education Institute
The Judie Burrows Education Institute offers transformational educational programming that advances patient safety and empowers real, measurable progress. It serves as a way to accelerate our progress by engaging people in our journey. We’re able to educate employers on how to get the best care for their employees, educate health providers on the latest in safety standards, and educate the public on how this all impacts them.
Being an engaged patient is not always easy, but research shows that proactive, informed patients fare better. Many organizations are out there working to bring this information to you. Use the following list as a starting point when you're making health care decisions for you and your family.
Over 20 years ago, employers and purchasers created The Leapfrog Group to demand transparency from hospitals on their quality and safety practices. Today many employers use Leapfrog to better educate their employees on choosing a hospital and leverage their purchasing power to structure value-based purchasing and get the best care at the best price.
These webinars and videos are designed to educate employers on how to get the best care for their employees, educate health providers on the latest in safety standards, and educate the public on how this all impacts them.
Named in honor of The Leapfrog Group's first Board Chair, The Bruce Bradley Fellowship is a year-long education and training program for corporate-health professionals who want to take an active role in steering employees and their families to safer, higher-quality hospitals and health systems.
