"We set the toughest standards in the industry, so hospitals that excel at Leapfrog deserve the finest recognition we can give them," said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group.
The Leapfrog Hospital Survey compares hospitals' performance on national standards of patient safety, quality, efficiency and management structures that prevent errors, providing the most comprehensive picture of how patients fare at individual institutions. The data collected also enables hospitals to benchmark their progress towards Leapfrog's standards and measure the care they deliver.
