MONAHRQ 5.0 Update

An updated version of AHRQ’s My Own Network powered by AHRQ (MONAHRQ) 5.0 software is now available. The update has several enhancements that are based on user feedback, including:

  • Optimized performance for host users who work with large inpatient and emergency department data sets.
  • New data checks to make sure dependent elements are set up correctly so they will work together well in producing the Web site (i.e., "dependency checks").
  • Updates to the host user guide, including a list and description of all dependency checks.
  • More informative alert messages.

MONAHRQ is a free desktop software tool that enables any organization to create a public or private Web site to provide evidence-based health care reports. The tool provides evidence-based reports for consumers, providers, policymakers, and others for use in improving health care transparency, safety, quality, and affordability. Maryland recently became the 13th State to publish a public report using MONAHRQ and the first to use this new version of the tool.

The Maryland Health Care Commission’s Web site allows consumers and other audiences to compare hospital quality ratings across the entire state.
