The annual Leapfrog ASC Survey is free and open to ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) from April 1 to November 30. The Survey assesses the safety and quality of ASCs based on national, evidence-based measures that are of specific interest to employers, health care purchasers, and consumers. Survey Results are publicly reported and provide ASCs with information to benchmark their progress in improving the care they deliver.
Details Page Live on July 12
ASCs that submit a Survey by June 30 will be able to view their Survey Results on their confidential ASC Details Page on July 12. This includes NHSN Data for the SDOMs and applicable SSIs, and CMS outpatient data for ASC-12, ASC-17, and ASC-18 (if applicable).
After July 12, the ASC Details Pages are updated on the fifth business day of the month to reflect Surveys (re)submitted by the end of the previous month.

Why the Leapfrog ASC Survey Matters to Purchasers
“With the convenience and growing use of ambulatory surgery centers, patients are able to access cost effective alternatives to inpatient care. But how do employers, employees and family members know which outpatient facilities to choose from? The Leapfrog Group just made this a little easier. In addition to offering public reporting for hospital quality and safety nationwide, the same information will be available on outpatient care. This matters because patients need guidance in finding the safest facilities with the highest quality care -- which benefits employers and the people they care about the most.” - Cheryl Larson, President and CEO, Midwest Business Group on Health
