Identify what’s important Develop ways to measure Include process, outcome, and satisfaction measures Identify if your program has data to measure progress and how accurate, reliable and valid is the data A good indicator consists of: – Relevance – Measurability – Accuracy – Improvability

9 ADAP Clinical Quality Management Tutorial National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors and the National Quality Center HRSA/HAB ADAP Performance Measures The following are HAB’s Performance Measures for ADAP:HAB’s Performance Measures 1.Percent of ADAP applications approved or denied for new ADAP enrollment within 14 days (two weeks) of ADAP receiving a complete application in the measurement year 2.Percentage of ADAP enrollees who are reviewed for continued ADAP eligibility two or more times in the measurement year 3.Percentage of new anti-retroviral classes that are included in the ADAP formulary within 90 days of the date of inclusion of new antiretroviral classes in the PHS Guidelines for the Use of Antiretroviral Agents in the HIV-1-infected Adults and Adolescents during the measurement year 4.Percent of identified inappropriate antiretroviral (ARV) regimen components prescriptions that are resolved by the ADAP program during the measurement year.

10 ADAP Clinical Quality Management Tutorial National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors and the National Quality Center ADAP Example: Performance Measurement Performance Measure: Percent of ADAP applications approved or denied for new ADAP enrollment within 14 days (two weeks) of ADAP receiving a complete application. An ADAP working on improving this performance measure would use the current year as the baseline. For example - in 2010, 87% of applications were approved or denied within 14 days. In 2011 – 92% and in 2012 – 95%. Using the PDSA cycle, the ADAP would describe the program improvements they will make to spur the increase in percentage of applications processed within 14 days.

Quality goals are endpoints or conditions toward which a quality program will direct its efforts and resources. Three things to look at in designing goals: – Frequency: How many clients received and how many did not receive the standard of care/services? – Impact: What is the effect on clients’ health if they do not receive the appropriate care/service? – Feasibility: Can something be done about this problem with the resources available?
