Innovative Software Cuts Costs and Time for States to Report Hospital Quality Information to the Public

Info copied from AHRQ emailed newsletter

AHRQ = Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality

“AHRQ unveiled MONAHRQ – My Own Network Powered by AHRQ—a free, MS Windows-based software application that significantly reduces the cost and time a state, hospital or other organization would need to spend to compile, analyze and post data on quality of hospital care, its cost, and how that care is used.  MONAHRQ allows users to create a customized Web site with the data that can be used for internal quality improvement or reporting quality information to the public.  A state, or other organization, referred to as the host user, can download MONAHRQ from AHRQ’s Web site and enter its own hospital administrative data, which includes such elements as patient characteristics, diagnoses, procedures, health insurance type and charges. MONAHRQ processes that information and then creates a Web site that the host user can customize by selecting a specific color scheme, inserting logos and using other features. “
