The annual Leapfrog ASC Survey is free and open to ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) from April 1 to November 30. The Survey assesses the safety and quality of ASCs based on national, evidence-based measures that are of specific interest to employers, health care purchasers, and consumers. Survey Results are publicly reported and provide ASCs with information to benchmark their progress in improving the care they deliver.
Proposed Changes for 2023 Published
Each year, The Leapfrog Group’s research team reviews the literature and convenes expert panels to ensure the Leapfrog ASC Survey aligns with the latest science and the public reporting needs of purchasers and consumers. The public comment period has closed. However, the document is available for review.
January 31 Deadline Approaching
ASCs that need to make data entry corrections (i.e., correct data entry errors) or reporting corrections (i.e., in response to Leapfrog’s Extensive Monthly Data Review) to previously submitted 2021 Leapfrog ASC Surveys must make necessary updates and re-submit the entire Survey by January 31, 2021. The Online Survey Tool will go offline at midnight EST on January 31.

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
