GOAL: To assure that all patients receive the same level of quality services and resulting health outcomes regardless of their exposure category, race/ethnicity, gender, age or economic status.
This section assesses the program’s ability to ensure that all patients, regardless of their exposure category, race/ethnicity, gender, age, or economic status, receive the same level of quality care. To achieve equity in quality and outcomes for all patients, a system for consistent review of data stratified by these factors and evidence of actions taken for any disparities identified would be needed.
|G.2. To what extent does the HIV program measure disparities in care and patient outcomes and use performance data to improve care to eliminate or mitigate discernible disparities? Each score requires completion of all items in that level and all lower levels (except any items in level 0).|
