The first annual Leapfrog ASC Survey on patient safety and quality is free and open to ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) from April 1 to November 30. Like the Leapfrog Hospital Survey, there is never a cost to participate in the Leapfrog ASC Survey, which will assess the safety, quality, and efficiency of ASCs based on measures that are of specific interest to employers, health care purchasers and, consumers. The measures also provide ASCs the opportunity to benchmark their progress in improving the care they deliver.
ASC Benchmarking Reports Now Available
Confidential benchmarking reports are now available for ASCs that submitted a Survey by August 31. The reports include data collected from over 300 ASCs and 1,100 HOPDs. A link to the report is available on the ASC Details Page. ASCs that submit a Survey between September 1 and November 30 will receive their report in February.
November 30 Reminder
ASCs are still able to submit a Leapfrog ASC Survey up until November 30. ASCs that submit a Survey by this deadline will receive their free ASC Benchmarking Report in February. Request a Security Code to get started.

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
