Slide Show: Transparency in Healthcare

August 12, 2015



Last year, more than 1,500 U.S. hospitals voluntarily completed the Leapfrog Hospital Survey, the highest recorded participation to date. While hospitals are demonstrating an increased commitment to transparency, a new report released in July by nonprofit hospital watchdog The Leapfrog Group calls for more hospitals to report to the Survey in order to help inform healthcare decisions for all Americans. The report is a summary of previous reports issued by The Leapfrog Group and Castlight Health, and contains newly released information on hospital-acquired conditions, infections, safe practices, and never events. The results, as analyzed by Castlight Health, revealed several areas of needed improvement. This slide show presents a summary of data on hospital-acquired conditions, infections, safe practices, and never events from the Leapfrog Hospital Survey, presented by The Leapfrog Group and Castlight Health.
