The launch webinar includes presentations from:

  • Leah Binder, President and CEO of The Leapfrog Group

  • Tara Rose Murphy, a patient on our Expert Panel
  • Dr. Guillermo Umpierrez, chair of our Expert Panel and Professor of Endocrinology at Emory University School of Medicine

Slides and a recording are available here.

The Leapfrog Group and the American Diabetes Association (ADA) partnered to launch an inpatient diabetes recognition program called Recognized Leader in Caring for People Living with Diabetes. It is the first-ever national recognition program that will recognize hospitals providing safe and high-quality health care for people living with diabetes. 

Adult and general acute hospitals and specialty hospitals that care for adult inpatients and have submitted a 2023 Leapfrog Hospital Survey are eligible to apply for the designation. Application materials are now available. A badge will be given to only the top performers and displayed on Leapfrog’s public reporting website. Hospitals that do not meet the criteria will not be identified.

“There is an immense need to ensure hospitals provide safe, patient-centered care for all people who live with diabetes.”
- Robert Gabbay, M.D., Chief Scientific and Medical Officer, American Diabetes Association
