HAB has created the following sets of performance measures, which comprise indicators that providers can use in monitoring the quality of care they provide. The measures are based upon input from key stakeholders.
The measures can be used by Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program grantees at either the provider or system level. They can be used in their current format or further modified to meet agency needs. Grantees are encouraged to select measures that are most important to their agencies and the populations they serve.

While performance measure data are not required to be submitted to HAB, grantees are strongly encouraged to track and trend data on the measures to monitor the quality of care provided. Grantees are encouraged to identify areas for improvement and to include these in their quality management plans. This type of information can provide rich discussion opportunities with HAB Project Officers.
HAB is extremely interested in receiving feedback regarding the performance measures, particularly as it relates to the use of the measures. If you have any information you would like to share in regards to the utility, suggestions for improvement or examples of how the information has been used, please send an e-mail to HIVmeasures@hrsa.gov.
