Excellence in Hospital Website Transparency Best Practices Awards and Acknowledgement Program – URAC and the Leapfrog Group – 27 March 2012

“Washington, DC – URAC and the Leapfrog Group have partnered to develop the Excellence in Hospital Website Transparency Best Practices Awards and Acknowledgement Program to identify outstanding hospital websites that promote transparency of quality measures in a manner that is useful and user-friendly for consumers.  All hospitals who publically report their Leapfrog Hospital Survey results are eligible.

The awards program consists of two parts. Part I is an analysis of the overall website transparency and is determined based on a set of objective criteria established in accordance with the National Quality Forum’s guidelines for consumer-focused, Internet-based public reporting of health performance data as well as the Model Public Report Elements prepared for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and other research-based criteria. The criteria have been developed for the categories of design, credibility, literacy, and connectivity.  Part II evaluates applicants in terms of best practices in website transparency and reporting, and is determined by a panel of expert judges.”
