Description

This dataset represents self‐reported performance data by HIV ambulatory care programs. All HIV ambulatory programs throughout New York State with a significant HIV caseload (a total caseload of at least 30 HIV‐infected patients receiving ambulatory HIV care at one or more sites) are expected to self‐report their annual quality of care performance data using standardized submission tools and methodologies. With the assistance of the online eHIVQUAL application, performance data results are instantly available to HIV programs, allowing them to immediately utilize their data findings to prioritize upcoming quality activities, and are available for generating benchmarking reports across New York State. See Limitations regarding redaction of small‐population data. For more information, check out http://www.health.ny.gov/diseases/aids/about/, or go to the "About" tab.

Limitations
The eligibility criteria for including patients in the data review—at least one HIV primary care visit in each half of the year—focus on those HIV‐infected patients that are retained in ambulatory HIV care. The vast majority of HIV clinics use a sampling methodology (see documentation on eHIVQUAL.org) to reduce the data collection burden. The denominators for certain indicators are small (i.e., PCP prophylaxis) because eligible populations for these indicators are reduced. The vast majority of HIV ambulatory care programs (>90%) have self‐reported their performance data and are included in this report. Blank data fields occur for three reasons: (i) if there were five (5) or fewer patients eligible for a single indicator, these data were redacted to protect confidentiality; (ii) indicators with insufficient spread are not categorized by quintile; and (iii) some fields, such as facility type, are not applicable for aggregated (regional or statewide) entries.
