    • the number of patients treated
    • mortality and complication rates
    • length of stay
    • average costs
  • The information provided by the Hospital Advisor Tool includes reports such as the Leapfrog Group’s patient safety report, and hospital satisfaction data.
  • To use the Hospital Advisor Tool, log on as a member at healthnet.com and go to Next Steps (on the right hand side) > Compare Hospitals.
  • The latest Leapfrog survey results for hospital and patient safety are found on the Hospital Advisor Tool. While in the tool, choose a hospital, click on View Report, then the Safety tab, and then view both the Leapfrog Hospital Survey tab and Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade
