Summary of Changes to the Leapfrog Hospital and ASC Surveys

March 20, 2024

Each year, The Leapfrog Group’s research team reviews the literature and convenes national expert panels to ensure the Leapfrog Hospital and ASC Surveys align with the latest science and the public reporting needs of purchasers and consumers. Once the list of proposed changes is assembled for next year’s Survey, Leapfrog releases that list for public comment. The public comments received are then reviewed by Leapfrog’s research team, the Survey is pilot tested with a diverse group of hospitals across the country, and content and scoring are finalized for launch on April 1.

Leapfrog received nearly 200 public comments in response to its proposed changes for the 2024 Leapfrog Hospital and ASC Surveys. Those comments, as well as the feedback collected during the pilot test, were incorporated into the final content and scoring algorithms for the Survey. We have summarized the final changes in the documents below and included responses to public comments.

We offer our sincere gratitude to all commenters. The submitted comments were invaluable to the development of high-quality Surveys that serve our many constituents, including patients and family caregivers, purchasers and payors, as well as hospitals and the public at large.
