2020 ASC Survey Measures

The Leapfrog Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) Survey was first launched in 2019 in recognition of the fact that more than 60 percent of surgeries in the United States are now performed in hospital outpatient units or ASCs. In 2020, Survey responses are scored and publicly reported by facility. The Outpatient Procedures section of the Leapfrog Hospital Survey closely aligns with the Leapfrog ASC Survey. This joint effort provides purchasers and consumers with information to compare the same procedure, whether offered at a hospital or an ASC, across a range of topics important to purchasers, employers and patients. 

The measures included in Leapfrog's Surveys are predicated on the latest science and are selected with guidance from scientific advisors at the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety at Johns Hopkins Medicine as well as Leapfrog's volunteer Expert Panels.
