Office of AIDS

Care and Treatment Program Data & Reports

Various reports and publications are available to assess HIV care and treatment programs administered by the Office of AIDS (OA).  For some of these programs, the data are not yet complete and reports will be available at a later date. 

AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP)

Treatment activities include the administration of the ADAP Program.   This program ensures that HIV-positive uninsured and under-insured individuals have access to medication.  Data for this program are collected in a centralized database maintained by Ramsell Public Health Rx, a pharmacy benefit and information company.  The data include information from over 4,000 pharmacies statewide.   ADAP staff work closely with Ramsell to acquire the data needed to generate federal annual and quarterly reports (as required by the Health Resources and Services Administration – HRSA), conduct research and quality management activities, and generate the annual estimates package for the state budget.  

Medicare Part D

Medicare Part D is a subsidy program that pays monthly prescription drug premiums for eligible ADAP clients.  Data are used to track utilization of the program and to report progress to HRSA.  Beginning January 1, 2012, Medicare Part D data will be included in ARIES (the AIDS Regional Information and Evaluation System); reports will soon be developed.

Please visit ARIES Information for more details about ARIES. 

Office of AIDS Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Program (OA-PCIP)

OA-PCIP is a subsidy program that pays monthly PCIP premiums for HIV/AIDS clients who have been previously uninsured for at least six months, which helps to ensure that people with HIV/AIDS have access to primary medical care and AIDS drugs.  Data collected include client demographic data as well as premium payment amounts and frequency.  OA-PCIP data are entered in ARIES (the AIDS Regional Information and Evaluation System); given that OA-PCIP is a new program, reports will be available at a later date. 

Please visit ARIES Information for more details about ARIES. 

Office of AIDS Health Insurance Premium Payment Program (OA-HIPP)

OA-HIPP helps people with HIV/AIDS maintain their private health insurance coverage and continue their access to primary medical care.  The program also helps ensure that OA-HIPP clients have access to HIV/AIDS drugs and preserves ADAP access for clients with no other method of obtaining drug coverage.  Data collected include client demographic data as well as premium payment amounts and frequency.   Data for this program are entered by OA-HIPP staff at the OA.  The data are captured in ARIES (the AIDS Regional Information and Evaluation System) and reported on in various program reports as well as in federal reports required by HRSA.

Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) Program

HOPWA provides housing assistance designed to alleviate or prevent homelessness for people with HIV/AIDS and to improve access to HIV/AIDS care, treatment, and support. OA receives an annual HOPWA grant annually through Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  The funds are used for short-term emergency rent, mortgage, and utility payments to prevent homelessness as well as tenant-based or project-based rental assistance, facility operating costs, housing information, permanent housing placement assistance, and support services.   Data for this program are entered into ARIES by the individual agencies who receive HOPWA funds.  The data are used to comply with state and federal reporting requirements as stipulated by HUD.  The data are also used for program monitoring and quality management activities.  Reports will be available once data for all providers and subcontractors are complete.

Please visit ARIES Information for more details about ARIES. 

Medi-Cal Waiver Program (MCWP)

MCWP provides services that allow persons with mid- to late-stage HIV/AIDS to remain in their homes through their continuum of care, stabilize and maintain an optimal level of health, improve quality of life, and provide an alternative to more expensive and non-community-based institutional care in hospitals or nursing facilities. MCWP provides a broad range of services.  Emphasis is given to those populations which are institutionalized and/or disproportionately affected by HIV/AIDS.   The data include client demographics and services provided.   The data from this program are reported in various program and federal reports.  MCWP data are being collected in ARIES (the AIDS Regional Information and Evaluation System).  Reports will soon be developed.

Please visit ARIES Information for more details about ARIES. 

HIV Care Program (HCP)

HCP provides Ryan White Part B funding to local health jurisdictions and community-based organizations throughout California for the provision of care, treatment, support, and prevention services for persons living with HIV/AIDS.  The data for this program are captured in ARIES (the AIDS Regional Information and Evaluation System).  Individual agencies who receive Ryan White Part B funds are responsible for entering the data including client demographics, services, medical information, and care plans.  Program activities also focus on quality management and program evaluation, primarily for accountability purposes resulting from directives by HRSA to provide evidence of the impact of HIV programs to Congress.  The data are also used in monitoring provider sites, as required by HRSA.  Reports will be available once data for all HCP providers are included in ARIES.

Please visit ARIES Information for more details about ARIES. 

Minority AIDS Initiative Program (MAI)

MAI funds received from the Ryan White federal grant are targeted to communities of color, where individuals often do not seek treatment until advanced stages of disease progression, have lower rates of retention in treatment programs, and have lower adherence to medication regimes.  MAI helps to facilitate entry or re-entry into care, and helps to maintain in care those clients who are only marginally engaged in treatment.   Currently the data for this program are e-mailed or faxed to OA and entered into an Access database.  Program activities focus on quality management and program evaluation, as well as meeting federal reporting requirements established by HRSA.  MAI data will be entered into ARIES (the HIV/AIDS Regional Information and Evaluation System) once a system enhancement is completed, and reports will be developed at that time.
