The Leapfrog Group is an initiative driven by organizations that buy healthcare who are working to initiate breakthrough improvements in the safety, quality and affordability of healthcare for Americans. It is a voluntary program aimed at mobilizing employer purchasing power to alert America’s health industry that big leaps in healthcare safety, quality and customer value will be recognized and rewarded.
St. Mary’s is a part of the Leapfrog Group Hospital Quality and Safety initiative. The latest information submitted is now available on the national website. In addition, St. Mary’s is included in the Regional Roll-Out for the Leapfrog Group. Leapfrog Group identifies states and, in this case the city of Evansville, as areas to “roll-out” their leaps for quality and safety.
