Each year, The Leapfrog Group’s research team reviews the literature and convenes expert panels to ensure the Leapfrog Hospital Survey aligns with the latest science as well the public reporting needs of purchasers and consumers. Once the list of proposed changes is assembled for the next year’s Survey, Leapfrog releases that list for public comment. The public comments received are then reviewed by Leapfrog’s research team and used to refine the Survey before it is finalized.
This year, we are requesting that commenters pay special attention to the following:
- Important Note on Changes Made in 2020 Due to COVID-19
- Changes to the CPOE Evaluation Tool
- Reporting Periods for NHSN Infection Measures
Comments will be accepted until COB on December 18, 2020.
