The HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) of HRSA has developed a series of clinical performance indicators for Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program-funded clinics as part of its quality improvement efforts. This project is still under development, but there have been three groups of indicators released for public comment and review. See HRSA/HAB's website for more details.
The AETC program has developed numerous resources related to these performance measures. The links below provide a starting point for faculty developing trainings around these indicators. Each indicator is linked to HRSA's detailed description which includes references.
