Harvard study: Mortality rates lower in Leapfrog hospitals

Leapfrog Group, June 19, 2008

A study by the Leapfrog Group has found that hospitals that perform well on the Leapfrog Hospital Survey have lower mortality and better quality of care than those who either didn't perform as well on the survey, or who chose not to complete it. Additionally, the study, published in the Joint Commission Journal on Quality and Patient Safety, shows that hospitals that had begun to implement Leapfrog safety practices also had lower mortality rates.
