  • Section 4A Medication and Allergy Documentation - Scoring reflects updated definition of a ‘sufficient sample size’ from 60 to 30 cases. This update is intended to ease the burden of data abstraction while facilities are responding to COVID-19.

September 8, 2020

  • Added Scoring Cut-Points 5A Patient Experience (OAS CAHPS) - Leapfrog published cut-points for the Patient Experience (OAS CAHPS) measure using Surveys submitted by August 31, 2020. See page 20 for more information.

ASC Details Page

Generally, ASCs that submit by June 30 are able to preview their Survey Results on the ASC Details Page beginning on July 12. However, in 2020, as part of Leapfrog’s COVID-19 response, Leapfrog will not publicly report Survey Results until September for ASCs that submit by August 31. The ASC Details Page will be available on the same day that Survey Results are published and will be refreshed monthly. See ASC Details Page for more information.
