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.

In September 2020​, Leapfrog begian scoring responses and publicly reports individual ASC Survey Results on our website. In addition, Leapfrog publicly reports Survey Results from the Outpatient Procedures section of the Leapfrog Hospital Survey. These new Survey Results 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. 

In 2021, The Leapfrog Group will give out its first ever Top Ambulatory Surgery Center awards, modeled after the Leapfrog Top Hospital award. Top ASCs will be acknowledged in Leapfrog's national press release and website, and will be invited to accept their award in person at Leapfrog's Annual Meeting and Awards Ceremony. To be eligible for consideration, ASCs must complete the Leapfrog ASC Survey by August 31, 2021.

Leapfrog ASC Survey Results may also be featured by various print and digital media outlets, such as in news stories and articles. Learn more about how our current hospital ratings are used by employers, purchasers, and others.
