The leadership steering group of WellOK resolved at its October 2014 meeting to bring Leapfrog Group to the greater Tulsa and Northeastern Oklahoma area.
The group will work to get our hospitals to participate in this important activity. Leapfrog now surveys and evaluates hospital for quality and safety in 43 regions (representing 28 states) around the country. Around 1500 hospitals currently participate.
Unlike other survey systems, the results from Leapfrog's work are publicly available at no cost to everyone. Those results are also easy to understand.
Bringing Leapfrog to our area fits nicely with WellOK's mission and vision. We plan to have regional hospitals participating in the survey in 2015.
