Throughout the year, Leapfrog will host Town Hall Calls to provide hospitals and other stakeholders background information about the content of the Leapfrog Hospital Survey. In addition, we often host Town Hall Calls on special topics that we are considering for future versions of the Leapfrog Hospital Survey. You can find information, including presentations and recordings, from all of our Town Hall Calls below. Questions about Town Hall Calls can be directed to our Help Desk.
