The Leapfrog Group collects and reports one-of-a-kind data that can’t be found in your claims. Results of the 2015 Leapfrog Hospital Survey, available by hospital at the national level, show that:
440,000 people die annually due to preventable hospital errors, and when errors happen in the hospital, employers pay the price. Beyond the harm to your employees, employers and other purchasers pay an average of $8,000 per hospital admission for errors, injuries, accidents and infections.
"At CBS Corporation we are dedicated to helping our employees find the best care for themselves and their families. As a member of The Leapfrog Group, we join other like-minded employers and purchasers to jumpstart improvements in hospital safety, quality, and efficiency. Using data from the Leapfrog Hospital Survey and tools like the Hospital Safety Score, we can start important conversations with leadership and empower our employees to find the safest care possible."
Michelle Martin, Vice President, HR Specialty Services, CBS Corporation
How purchasers work with Leapfrog.
15 years ago, employers and purchasers created The Leapfrog Group to demand transparency from hospitals on their quality and safety practices. Today hundreds of employers use Leapfrog to better educate their employees on choosing a hospital and leverage their purchasing power to structure value-based purchasing and get the best care at the best price.
