Capital Blue Cross  Leapfrog  Hospital Recognition Program

In 2016, Capital Blue Cross partnered with HCIF to launch its Leapfrog Hospital Recognition Program (LHRP), a pay for improvement reimbursement program using quality and safety data from the Leapfrog Hospital Survey.  HCIF organizes and facilitates in-person shared learning symposiums that enable hospital representatives to learn about LHRP and to discuss and share strategies to improve performance on quality and safety issues addressed in the Leapfrog Hospital Survey. HCIF also analyzes Leapfrog Survey data and variations in regional performance to identify trends, strengths, and opportunities for improvement.  In 2016, in-person meetings focused on C-sections and hospital-acquired injuries.
