By: Judy Mathias

Editor’s Note

The Leapfrog Group announced October 16 that it would expand its public reporting to outpatient settings.

For the first time, Leapfrog will collect quality and safety data on ambulatory surgery centers through a new voluntary survey, and hospital outpatient surgery departments will report data through a new section of the Leapfrog Hospital Survey.

The surveys will gather data on the facility, medical and nursing staff, procedure volume and outcomes, patient safety practices , and patient experience.

Both surveys will begin in April 2019, and a national report will be published by fall 2019.
