Many of the leading transparency vendors, as well as young start-ups utilize Leapfrog data in their platforms that assist consumers in making informed health care choices.
Rates of C-section, safe surgical volumes for high risk procedures and implementation of practices to prevent medication errors are all powerful snapshots of hospital performance that help users recognize they do have a choice when it comes to hospital care.
The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade, Leapfrog's letter grade rating of hospital safety, provides an easy-to-understand and instant assessment of hospital safety.
