2013 Annual Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Data Training

Please see other RSR and ADR training and technical assistance resources available on both this website and the TARGET Center website.

The training will be conducted at: Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center, 5701 Marinelli Road, North Bethesda, MD 20852. To learn more about this year’s training or to register, please visit the training website 2013 Annual Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Data Training Exit disclaimer.

What is the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Services Report?

Beginning in 2009, Ryan White Program grantees and service providers started using a new data reporting system to report information on their programs and the clients they serve to the HIV/AIDS Bureau.

The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Services Report, or the RSR for short, is comprised of:

  • The Grantee Report. Grantees will complete this report online through the HRSA Electronic Handbooks (EHBs) using a web-based data entry system. Besides providing basic information about their organization, they will view, update, and verify a pre-filled list of their service provider contracts that were active in the most recent reporting period. For each of the contracts, grantees will view a list of Ryan White Program services and then check the boxes next to all services that their organization funded under the contract.
  • The Service Provider Report. Service providers will complete this report online. In addition to providing some basic information about their organization, providers will view a pre-filled list of their active service provider contracts for the most recent reporting period. For each of the service contracts, providers will view a list of Ryan White Program services and check the boxes next to all services that their organization delivered to RW Program clients during the reporting period.
  • The Client Report. Each service provider 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 include information on demographic status, HIV clinical information, HIV-care medical and support services received, and the client's 'UCI', an encrypted, unique client identifier.
