The New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute has been collecting client-level data from all subcontractors since 1995. Strategies utilized in the AIDS Institute Reporting System (AIRS) to ensure complete, accurate data collection include comprehensive data validations; development of suites of reports to allow providers to manage data quality on an ongoing basis; the creation of a client-level “RSR Completeness Assessment” within the data collection system; collecting an interim RSR and providing a 6- month aggregate completeness report to catch issues earlier in the process; continuous training and technical assistance; and designing the data collection system with a level of granularity that allows mapping to multiple funding sources, improved utility to providers for local client management, and flexibility as requirements change.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will learn techniques for ensuring data accuracy and completeness in a data collection system.
  • Participants will learn feedback strategies for data quality.
  • Participants will be understand the design of tools for data QA and submission at the grantee level.
