The HIV Open Data Project is a multiphase endeavor funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office of HIV/AIDS and Infectious Disease Policy (OHAIDP) that seeks to address several known challenges associated with monitoring HHS-funded HIV prevention, treatment, and care services, including the lack of consistency among key indicators, an inability to summarize progress across HHS-funded programs, and a lack of interoperability among systems for reporting programmatic and fiscal data.
This project is intended to inform planning activities in support of the HIV Open Data Project by evaluating the feasibility of data streamlining and harmonization strategies across HHS-funded HIV prevention, treatment, and care services.
NORC will work with the OHAIDP on this contract for planning phase activities which will evaluate the feasibility of data streamlining and harmonization strategies by:
- Cataloguing and describing current and pending data systems, indicators, and elements.
- Documenting extant reporting obligations.
- Identifying opportunities for streamlining, harmonizing, and otherwise improving data flows.
- Providing recommendations for the development of an information management system that permits secure data sharing among stakeholders, facilitates decision-making to optimize programming, and reduces administrative burden among HIV services grantees.
