Funding

Health Information Technology (HIT) Capacity Building for Monitoring and Improving Health Outcomes along the HIV Care Continuum - Capacity Building Sites

Description
Grant Amount: Approximately $2,000,000 is expected to be available annually to fund up to four grantees.

This announcement will solicit applications for the fiscal year (FY) 2014 Health Information Technology Capacity Building for Monitoring and Improving Health Outcomes along the HIV Care Continuum – Capacity Building Sites. The purpose of this program is to support four current grantees of record awarded under the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Parts A or B to enhance the health information technology (HIT) systems in their States or Eligible Metropolitan Areas (EMAs) or Transitional Grant Areas (TGAs). These enhancements will allow a State or EMA/TGA’s HIT infrastructure to more fully integrate and utilize relevant measures of HIV treatment, surveillance, laboratory and other program data, in order to build the HIV Care Continuum (formerly known as the HIV Treatment Cascade) for people living with HIV (PLWH) in their jurisdictions. The HIV Care Continuum’s potential to become a key tool in assessing treatment outcomes and program effectiveness can only be fully met when State and EMA/TGA grantees have the capacity to efficiently utilize the Continuum’s measures from all relevant HIV data systems in their jurisdictions. State and EMA/TGA grantees who are better equipped to integrate and utilize the Continuum’s treatment, surveillance and laboratory measures, can improve their monitoring of health outcomes along the HIV Care Continuum. Optimal use of the HIV Care Continuum will allow States and EMA/TGAs to better target interventions for HIV-infected subpopulations experiencing disparities, and more efficiently utilize resources to improve health outcomes among PLWH.
