The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Services Report (RSR)

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.
