Proposed Changes to the 2022 Leapfrog Hospital Survey

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 and 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 2021 Due to COVID-19, including a permanent reduction to the sampling requirement for some Maternity Care measures and the Medication Safety for Outpatient Procedures
  • Proposed Scoring Algorithm for Section 1B: Billing Ethics
  • Replacement of Patient Consent questions for outpatient procedures (Section 10) with a New Subsection 1C: Informed Consent
  • Safe Surgery Checklist questions for outpatient surgery (Section 10) added to Adult and Pediatric Complex Surgery (Section 3)
