According to a study from the Harvard School of Public Health, hospitals that perform well on the Washington-based Leapfrog Hospital Survey have lower mortality and better quality of care than those who either didn’t perform as well on the survey or who chose not to complete the survey.

Researchers used 2006 Leapfrog Hospital Survey and 2006 Hospital Quality Alliance data to make findings about three common conditions – AMI, CHF and pneumonia.

According to the company, hospitals that had begun to implement Leapfrog safety practices also had lower mortality rates.
