The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program ADAP Data Report (ADR)

The HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) now requires that all AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (ADAPs) report the ADAP Data Report (ADR). The ADR enables HAB to evaluate the impact of ADAP on a national level, inclusive of describing who is using the program, what ADAP-funded services are being used and the associated costs with these services. The ADAP Quarterly Report (AQR) is no longer required.

What is the ADAP Data Report (ADR)?

ADAPs use the ADR data reporting system to report information to the HIV/AIDS Bureau on their program and the clients they serve. 

The ADR is comprised of two components:

The Grantee Report.  Grantees will complete this report online through the HRSA Electronic Handbooks (EHBs) using a web-based data system.  Besides providing basic information about their organization, they will provide information about program limits, developments and changes, income eligibility requirements, coordination with Medicaid and State Pharmaceutical assistance programs, funding and expenditure amounts, and their ADAP formulary on a semiannual basis.  

Annually, grantees will provide information on frequency of recertification, clinical eligibility criteria and cost-saving strategies.

The Client Report (or client-level data).  Each grantee will submit this report online as an electronic file upload using a standard format. Each upload file will contain one record per client. Each client record will contain information on clients enrolled in ADAP during the reporting period regardless of whether or not they received services. Information reported will include information on demographic status as well as enrollment and certification information. A client’s record may also include HIV clinical information as well as information about the ADAP-funded insurance and/or medications received. The client-level data is submitted on a semiannual basis.

All ADAPs are required to submit both reports. The ADR has been approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) through 2014.
