HealthLeaders Media

The Leapfrog Group on Wednesday rolled out the seventh cycle of its Hospital Safety Score for more than 2,500 hospitals, revealing to the public for the first time grades for each hospital going back to the first release in June, 2012.

Leapfrog spokeswoman Erica Mobley says Leapfrog is rolling out all the scores to show trend lines, which for some hospitals show dramatic improvement from SP to A, but for others show the opposite trajectory. We hope hospitals will use the safety score and the survey as performance improvement tools,” she says.
