Overview

The HHS-wide initiative Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America seeks to leverage the powerful data and tools now available to reduce new HIV infections in the United States by 75 percent in five years and by 90 percent by 2030. HITEQ is identifying best practices and barriers to using health IT to support early diagnosis, application of proven prevention interventions including access to PrEP, and sustained treatment for people living with HIV to achieve and maintain viral suppression.

Improving UDS Clinical Quality Measure Performance: Increasing HIV Prevention in Primary Care

HITEQ Highlights Webinar

Introduction

Primary care plays a key role in ending the HIV epidemic. The Ending the HIV Epidemic initiative launched across HHS in 2019, setting forth four key strategies also called the “four pillars” of ending the HIV epidemic. Primary care in health centers figures centrally into these efforts, evidenced by the addition of several HIV screening and prevention measures and metrics in the Uniform Data System (UDS) reporting. 

Who should review?

Health center staff (clinicians, quality managers, and others) interested in improving HIV screening and prevention in the primary care setting.

What should attendees expect?

This webinar reviewed HIV screening and prevention, including HIV Screening, PrEP management, and linkage to HIV treatment, UDS reporting as well as a data deep dive and available data dashboards. Opportunities for HIV-related quality improvement in the health center primary care setting were also identified.
