Important Notes

  1. The Leapfrog ASC Survey is for ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) and is not applicable to hospital outpatient departments (HOPDs). Most ambulatory surgery centers are certified by Medicare and assigned a 10-digit CMS Certification Number (nn-Cnnnnnnn). Surgery centers that operate as an outpatient department of a hospital and share a CMS Certification Number (nn-nnnn) with a hospital should submit a 2024 Leapfrog Hospital Survey. If you have questions about which Survey to submit, please contact the Leapfrog Help Desk.
  2. To participate in the Leapfrog ASC Survey, ASCs must currently be performing procedures in one or more of the following specialties: Gastroenterology, General Surgery, Ophthalmology, Orthopedics, Otolaryngology, Urology, Neurological Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology, or Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

To ensure adequate reporting, facilities must be open and performing the procedures included in Section 3A and/or 3B for a minimum of one calendar year (i.e., CY2023). New facilities that only perform total knee or total hip replacement procedures or that only perform bariatric surgery for weight loss, may wait 18-months before reporting. After completing and submitting the Profile, please contact the Help Desk with information regarding the procedures performed by your facility and with any questions.

  1. ASCs reporting on Section 4B: NHSN Outpatient Procedure Component Module are required to join Leapfrog’s NHSN Group. More information, including instructions and important deadlines, is available on the Join NHSN Group page.
  2. Leapfrog ASC Survey Results will be available on the ASC Details Page beginning July 12 and publicly reported on our public reporting website on July 25. After July, the ASC Details Page and public reporting website will be refreshed monthly within the first five (5) business days of each month to reflect Surveys submitted or resubmitted between July 1 and November 30 and previously submitted Surveys corrected before January 31. Survey Results are frozen from February to July 25.
