Value-Based Purchasing for Self-Insured Entities.
Leapfrog's new program ranks hospitals on how well they care for your employees and their families, so you can start your quest for better health care today. It is estimated that thousands of patients are harmed and 500 die every day in the U.S. from preventable problems like medical errors and infections, all of which inflate employers' health costs by at least a third. Now employers of any size have an affordable tool to change that.
Purchasers' Thoughts on Health Plan Value.
Hundreds of purchasers representing small to jumbo employers weighed in on Leapfrog's survey asking how well health plans are driving quality, safety and value. The findings of this survey compare performance of large health plans to each other and reveal employers expect more from their plans when it comes to getting high-value care for their employees and dependents.
Saving lives and saving dollars.
Upwards of 200,000 people die annually due to preventable hospital errors, and when errors happen in the hospital, employers pay the price in more ways than one. Beyond the harm and suffering to your employees, employers and other purchasers pay an average of over $7,500 per hospital admission for errors, injuries, accidents and infections.
How purchasers work with Leapfrog.
Nearly 20 years ago, employers and purchasers created The Leapfrog Group to demand transparency from hospitals on their quality and safety practices. Today many employers use Leapfrog to better educate their employees on choosing a hospital and leverage their purchasing power to structure value-based purchasing and get the best care at the best price.
