Competitive Benchmarking

Leapfrog's Competitive Benchmarking Reports (see a sample) summarize and benchmark hospitals' Leapfrog Hospital Survey Results, including newly available information on nursing workforce, billing ethics, and informed consent. The reports are designed to help hospitals present their Survey Results in an easy-to-understand format to engage multiple stakeholder groups, including medical staff, administrators, front-line caregivers, and boards of directors. In addition to summarizing performance on up to 44 national measures of safety, quality, and efficiency, the reports can also be used to highlight areas of excellence and identify areas for improvement.

Reports utilize data collected from Leapfrog participating hospitals across the country and are calculated based on the Leapfrog Value-Based Purchasing Program (VBP) methodologyTM Report data is updated twice yearly in September and February. Reports ordered between September and January will utilize Leapfrog Hospital Survey data as of August 31. Reports ordered between February and August will utilize Leapfrog Hospital Survey data as of January 31. Reports can be purchased through the online store.

All hospitals that complete a Survey by June 30 are eligible to receive a Free Summary Report, which is emailed to all hospital CEOs in September. For more detailed, comparative performance information, hospitals can purchase a report that compares critical aspects of care provided to that at other Leapfrog Hospital Survey-participating hospitals. Hospitals can now order their year-end 2023 Competitive Benchmarking Report. As a reminder, hospitals that ordered mid-year reports will automatically receive a year-end report e-mailed in February.

For health systems: Custom cohorts of your network facilities are available, allowing you to compare hospitals and identify the strong facilities in your system as well as those in need of improvement. Contact our Help Desk for more information on pricing and how to order.
