Leapfrog Award


  • In December 2013, The Leapfrog Group (Leapfrog) announced its list of 2013 Top Hospitals at its Annual Meeting.

    One of the nation’s most competitive hospital quality awards, the Top Hospitals designation recognizes hospitals that deliver the highest quality care by preventing medical errors, reducing mortality for high-risk procedures, and reducing readmissions for conditions like pneumonia and heart attack.

    The 2013 Top Hospitals list was selected from a record number of 1,324 hospitals that voluntarily participated in the Leapfrog Hospital Survey. The Leapfrog Hospital Survey compares hospitals’ performance on national standards of safety, quality and efficiency that are pertinent to consumers and purchasers of care.

    Additionally, eligible hospitals must earn a top score from Leapfrog’s Hospital Safety Score, which evaluates hospitals based on expert analysis of infections, injuries and medical errors. Leapfrog Top Hospitals traditionally have lower infection rates, higher survival rates for high-risk procedures, decreased length of stay and fewer readmissions.

    Below is the list of Cerner clients that have been recognized with this honor. Click here to view the complete list of 2013 Leapfrog Top Hospitals, and read the full announcement on The Leapfrog Group website.

    We are pleased to congratulate all of our recognized clients on this exciting and well-deserved accomplishment!
