Capital Blue Cross Leapfrog Value-Based Purchasing Program

In 2016, Capital Blue Cross partnered with HCIF to launch its Leapfrog Value-Based Purchasing Program (LVBPP), a pay for improvement reimbursement program using quality and safety data from the Leapfrog Hospital Survey.  HCIF organizes and facilitates webinars and in-person shared learning symposiums that enable hospital representatives to learn about LVBPP 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.  Past in-person events focused on C-sections, hospital-acquired injuries, bar code medication administration, and infections.
