Seven additional New Jersey hospitals have recently joined The Leapfrog Hospital Rewards Program (LHRP), a nationally standardized method to assess patient care by measuring performance along two dimensions — the quality of care hospitals provide and how efficiently they deliver it.

The new institutions are:

· Hackensack University Medical Center

· Hoboken University Medical Center

· Hunterdon Medical Center

· Morristown Memorial Hospital

· Overlook Hospital

· Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (Hamilton)

· University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey Medical Center

Last July, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey (BCBSNJ) and the Washington, D.C.-based Leapfrog Group announced a collaboration to provide New Jersey hospitals with financial and public recognition for high-quality care via Horizon BCBSNJ's Hospital Recognition Program. Within this program, hospitals in the Horizon BCBSNJ network have the option to participate via the Leapfrog Hospital Rewards Program or a similar option created by Horizon BCBSNJ.
