Leapfrog Announces New Gold Partner Member: Arrowsight, Inc.

WASHINGTON, May 1 /PRNewswire/ -- The Leapfrog Group announced today that Arrowsight, Inc. (Mt. Kisco, NY) has joined as a gold partner member and that the two organizations will collaborate to help further The Leapfrog Group's mission to trigger giant leaps forward in the safety, quality and affordability of health care.

Arrowsight is an innovator helping heath care providers achieve sustainable improvements in patient safety practices that help reduce patient injury and hospital-acquired infections. Utilizing a pioneering video services and scorecard reporting platform that has been used extensively in the industrial manufacturing and retail sectors, Arrowsight is now providing Hospital Video Auditing (HVA) to health care providers to drive compliance improvements in safety processes that are notoriously difficult to track: hand hygiene, central-line insertion safety protocols, ventilator safety protocols and surgical-infection prophylaxis procedures. Arrowsight provides hospitals with objective, high-quality data on clinical process performance that clearly identifies compliance variance. With these tools, health care facilities can develop a new model for improving patient safety and benchmarking best-of-care practices.

Arrowsight CEO Adam Aronson said, "With insight from The Leapfrog Group, Arrowsight seeks to help hospitals improve patient safety, raise the benchmark of multiple quality of care indicators and dramatically reduce costs. The Hospital Video Auditing service enables physician and nursing leaders and hospital administrators to improve best practices, minimize errors and reduce risk within hospital environments."

Suzanne Delbanco, CEO, The Leapfrog Group, added, "We are excited about working with Arrowsight on these important initiatives that ultimately will help improve patient care in hospitals."
