About the Leapfrog Group
The Hospital Safety Score was created and is administered by The Leapfrog Group, a national leader and advocate in hospital transparency.
The Leapfrog Group is an independent, national not-for-profit organization founded more than a decade ago by the nation’s leading employers and private healthcare experts. We strive to make giant “leaps” forward in the safety, quality and affordability of healthcare in the U.S. by promoting transparency and value-based hospital incentives.
With our goal of saving lives by reducing injuries, accidents and preventable medical and medication errors, The Leapfrog Group focuses on measuring and publicly reporting hospital performance through the annual Leapfrog Hospital Survey. The survey is a trusted, transparent and evidence-based national tool in which more than 1,300 hospitals voluntarily participate free of charge.
