Any changes made to the measure specifications after April 1 will be reflected in the hard copy of the Survey in the Reference Information sections under the “Change Summary” header (see Table of Contents). In addition, the updates to the specifications will be highlighted in yellow. If the changes are substantial, we will email the Primary Survey Contact your facility indicated in the Profile Section of the Survey.

The Leapfrog Group and its participating members are committed to presenting information that is as current as possible and therefore allow facilities to update and resubmit their Survey until the November 30 Late Submission & Performance Update Deadline. Please carefully review the reporting periods in each section before updating your Survey.
