A MONAHRQ 5.0 Update Is Now Available
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) is pleased to announce that an updated version of the MONAHRQ 5.0 software is now available. The MONAHRQ team has listened to feedback from current Host Users and has developed improvements in the following areas:
- Optimized performance for Host Users who work with large inpatient and ED data sets
- New data checks to make sure that dependent elements are set up correctly so they will work together well in producing the website (i.e. "dependency checks")
- More informative alert messages
- Updates to the Host User Guide, including a list and description of all dependency checks

The MONAHRQ team thanks everyone who has offered guidance and suggestions to help shape MONAHRQ. As we move forward, please continue to provide us with challenges you run into and any ideas you have as your feedback makes improvements like those in this update possible.
UPDATING IS EASY!
If you are currently using MONAHRQ 5.0 to generate a website, but have not published: After downloading the upgrade (you should be automatically prompted, also MONAHRQ will keep your previously uploaded data and the website configurations), you should be able to publish the website seamlessly.
If you have already published a MONAHRQ 5.0 website: The improvements do not affect the published website, so you do not need to do anything at this time. In the future, if you create another or update your existing website, you will be automatically prompted to install the update the next time you launch the software.
If you are using MONAHRQ 4.1 or earlier: MONAHRQ 5.0 will be a new installation. It is recommended, but not required, to uninstall the prior versions of MONAHRQ before installing 5.0. After installing MONAHRQ 5.0, you will need to go through the process of generating your website in the 5.0 platform.
MONAHRQ TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE IS AVAILABLE TO HELP: If you have questions or need assistance installing the new software, please contact us at MONAHRQ@AHRQ.gov.
