Governor Mitch Daniels issued an executive order (#05-10) in January 2005 directing the Indiana Department of Health to promulgate regulation and, if necessary, propose legislation requiring each hospital in the state to implement a medical error reporting and quality system (MERS) and to report all MERS data to the Department of Health. The system has been operating since January 2006.
