Participate in the Leapfrog Hospital Survey

Cigna endorses and encourages hospitals to participate in the Leapfrog Hospital Survey. We use hospital performance information collected from the survey in our Centers of Excellence Hospital Value Profile. This self-reported public data is one of the criteria used to assess participating hospitals for the Cigna Center of Excellence designation.


It’s not too late to participate in the 2011 survey

Leapfrog continually updates and releases results on the fifth calendar day of each month through the end of the year. If you complete and submit a survey, or update a survey and re-submit it by month’s end, your hospital’s results will be reflected in the next monthly update. Hospitals that completed a survey before June 30, 2011 were included in Leapfrog's first release of 2011 survey results in late July.

The Leapfrog Group, a non-profit organization, is committed to improving the quality of health care and patient safety while helping individuals make more informed health care choices. For more information, visit
