Publicly Reported Health Outcomes
The following organizations have publicly reported data about patient safety, quality and outcomes. We provide this list as a resource for patients, families and the healthcare community.
The Leapfrog Group for Patient Safety
The Leapfrog Group works with its members to encourage transparency and easy access to patient safety and quality information. On their website you can find information about our patient safety ratings, based on data that we voluntarily give to the Leapfrog Group.
The Leapfrog Hospital Survey is the gold standard for comparing hospitals’ performance on the national standards of safety, quality and efficiency that are most relevant to consumers and purchasers of care. You'll see how we rank on things like preventing medication errors, reducing infection and more.
