Since the inaugural launch of the Leapfrog Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) Survey in 2019, Leapfrog has worked with ASCs, its Board of Directors, Regional Leaders, our national expert panel, the research faculty at Johns Hopkins Medicine, and purchaser members to review the latest evidence and literature to refine and develop Survey content and propose changes for each upcoming year. We also work with and rely upon our Ambulatory Surgery Center Advisory Committee, launched in March 2022, to advise on key issues related to ASC safety, quality, and efficiency.
A central part of Leapfrog’s annual Survey process is our Public Comment Period. Held each fall, ASCs and other stakeholders are urged to review the proposed changes to the upcoming Survey and provide formal comments to Leapfrog, our research team at Johns Hopkins, and our national expert panel. The comments are reviewed and used to refine the Survey before it is finalized.
The public comment period for the Proposed Changes to the 2024 Leapfrog Hospital Survey has closed.
Final changes to the 2024 Leapfrog ASC Survey will be posted prior to April 1.
