MONAHRQ® is a desktop software tool that enables organizations - such as state and local data organizations, regional reporting collaboratives, hospitals and hospital systems, and health plans - to quickly and easily generate a health care reporting Website. MONAHRQ® analyzes, summarizes, and presents information in a format ready for use by consumers and other decision makers on:
  • Quality of care at the hospital level,
  • Health care utilization at the hospital and emergency department level
  • Preventable hospitalizations at the area level, and
  • Rates of conditions and procedures at the area level.
  • Estimated costs and cost-savings related to the quality of care
MONAHRQ® lets you create a Website using your own inpatient discharge data, emergency department data, pre-calculated AHRQ Quality Indicators results, inpatient and outpatient measures from CMS Hospital Compare, and/or HCAHPS survey measures.

Any organization can use MONAHRQ® to generate a reporting Website. You simply:
  • Download MONAHRQ® software
  • Load your data
  • Select Website options
  • Generate the Website onto your own computer
  • Host the Website yourself
For a full demonstration Website generated by MONAHRQ, visit the MONAHRQ® 5.0 demo site.

For links to live reporting Websites generated using MONAHRQ, visit the MONAHRQ® Websites page.

For more detailed documentation on measures and methods used by MONAHRQ® download the Host User Guide (PDF file, 6.75 MB). For information on how to improve health care quality in key areas, visit the My Quality Improvement page.
