Abstract

The Leapfrog grading system may put too much weight on the wrong factors, according to a study published in the journal Medical Care by researchers at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Thus, hospitals with less than stellar scores on even one or two issues might be better off not participating in the system, researchers say.
