Ryan White Act Reporting

Administered by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), the Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency (CARE) funds improve access to health care for low-income, uninsured, and under-insured victims of AIDS and their families. The Ryan White Act provides this funding for local and state primary medical care providers and support services.

To correctly care for these patients, several key features should be available in your software solution:

  • Managing the CARE Reporting Burden
  • Data Capture for CARE reporting
  • Electronic Upload of reports in standard formats.

Reporting Burden

Grantees receiving funding under Title I-IV of the Ryan White (CARE) Act are required to prepare reports generated from data collected during the course of treating applicable patients. The data in these reports must present a precise, accurate picture of the type of care delivered.

Data Capture

From the moment a patient checks in, the services rendered must be accurately recorded. Just as SuccessEHS is able to capture clinical encounter data in a typical clinic setting, additional data elements required for Ryan White (CARE) reporting can be recorded with little impact on a clinic’s workflow.

Electronic Upload

Providers of services under the Ryan White (CARE) Act have to submit reports online via an electronic upload. These files must contain a single entry record for each patient within the file. This file must contain demographic status; HIV clinical information; and an encrypted, unique client identifier. Program Services Report (PSR) requirements are easily satisfied with SuccessEHS’s ability to read and write in standard formats.
