A central part of Leapfrog’s annual Survey process is our Public Comment period. Held each fall, ASCs, employee leaders involved with Leapfrog, and other stakeholders are urged to review the proposed changes to the upcoming Survey and provide formal comments to Leapfrog, our research team at Johns Hopkins, and our national expert panel. The comments received during the public comment period are reviewed and used to refine the Survey before it is finalized. The Survey is then pilot tested with a diverse group of ASCs across the country. Following the pilot test, Survey content and scoring are finalized for launch on April 1.
Leapfrog received nearly 40 public comments in response to its proposed changes for the 2022 Leapfrog ASC Survey. Those comments, as well as the results from the pilot test, were incorporated into the final content and scoring algorithms for the Survey. We have summarized the changes in this document and included summaries and responses to public comments in the next section.
The 2022 Leapfrog ASC Survey will open on April 1, 2022, and all Survey materials will be available on our website here. Leapfrog has already scheduled a number of informative Town Hall Calls. ASCs and other stakeholders can register on the Town Hall Calls webpage.
