Quality Management

What is Quality of Care?

Since 2000, the Ryan White Program legislation has included specific provisions directing federally funded grantees to establish, implement, and sustain quality management programs. These programs include the monitoring of access to and quality of health services to ensure that PLWH who are eligible for treatment receive it. This particular focus reflects several national trends in quality management and accountability.

Quality of care is defined by the Institute of Medicine as “the degree to which health services for individuals and populations increase the likelihood of desired health outcomes and are consistent with professional knowledge. The St. Louis Transitional Grant Area aims to render the support needed to improve the care and services provided to individuals with HIV/AIDS.
