Lewiston, ME (PRWEB) January 24, 2006
Montana Health Research and Education Foundation (MHREF) has selected Saferating Inc. as the vendor for its Health Information Technology Planning Grant funded by AHRQ. The pilot project has selected 10 Critical Access Hospitals (CAH) to participate. Five hospitals will use a customized Adverse Drug Event web form utilizing Saferating's PFT, while five other hospitals will use a paper based version of the custom form.
The project design will compare paper-based reporting with web-based (on line) reporting to determine if a cost effective IT solution will lead to decrease in Adverse Drug Events in Critical Access Hospitals.

About The Montana Health Research and Education Foundation (MHREF)
The Montana Health Research and Education Foundation (MHREF) was established by MHA as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization to provide education and research for today's changing health care market. MHREF is best known as the agency that administered the Medical Assistance Facility (MAF) Demonstration Project for eleven years, the nation's first - and recognized as its most successful - limited service rural hospital model.
The project was created to ensure access to health care services in frontier areas that otherwise could not maintain acute care services. The Critical Access Hospital (CAH) program authorized by the Balanced Budget Act of 1997 is based on Montana's MAFs. MHREF administers major portions of Montana's federal Rural Hospital Flexibility Grant to support CAH facilities at the request of the Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS).
