How Results Are Used

The Leapfrog ASC Survey was first launched on April 1, 2019. In October 2019, Leapfrog released its first report summarizing trends on the safety and quality of care for same-day surgical services nationwide. This report features aggregate national data from the 2019 Leapfrog ASC Survey and the Outpatient Procedures section of the 2019 Leapfrog Hospital Survey. Download the report here.

Beginning in September 2020 (updated from July 25, 2020, as part of Leapfrog’s COVID-19 response)​, Leapfrog will score responses and publicly report individual ASC Survey Results on our website. In addition, Leapfrog will publicly report Survey Results from the Outpatient Procedures section of the Leapfrog Hospital Survey. These new Survey Results will allow facilities, consumers, payers, purchasers, and others to compare the safety and quality of these two care settings (ambulatory surgery centers and hospital outpatient departments) using a comparable and standardized set of national patient safety and quality measures.
