Description

This chart summarizes performance at regional and statewide levels. The average clinic score (percentage of "yes" responses) for each region is compared to the average clinic score across the entire state. The default view displays data for viral load suppression, a key outcome measure, but other indicators may be selected under the Filter tab. Additional information about each data point can be obtained by moving your cursor over it. This overview may be useful for public health officers and researchers. It also enables individual providers and consumers to compare care in their region to that at a particular facility. It should be noted, however, that these are only relative comparisons for the purpose of continuous quality improvement; the statewide average is not intended to define a standard of acceptable performance. Also, the statistical significance of regional performance variation depends on the number of submissions per region, which varies considerably across the state.

Limitations
The eligibility criteria for including patients in the data review—atleast one HIV primary care visit in each half of the year—focus onthose HIV‐infected patients that are retained in ambulatory HIV care.The vast majority of HIV clinics use a sampling methodology (seedocumentation on eHIVQUAL.org) to reduce the data collectionburden. The denominators for certain indicators are small (i.e., PCPprophylaxis) because eligible populations for these indicators arereduced. 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) orfewer patients eligible for a single indicator, these data wereredacted to protect confidentiality; (ii) indicators with insufficientspread are not categorized by quintile; and (iii) some fields, such asfacility type, are not applicable for aggregated (regional or statewide) entries.
