The New Haven-Fairfield Counties (CT) EMA used a triennial EIS Summit to fast-track provider learning and data sharing on best approaches to provide Early Intervention Services. This includes highest yield seropositivity or re-engagement strategies; integration with Partner Services, and QI data tracking. This process led to comparing the efficacy of In-Reach (clinical identification, diagnosis and linkage) to Out-Reach (community based or social marketing techniques). Future effort focus on special populations at risk.

Learning Objectives:

  • This session will review 'lessons learned' regarding EIS strategies including integration with partner services and the roles of Medical Case Managers, HIV clinicians, and Disease Intervention Specialists.
  • Data tracking, information issues, and detail by special populations.
  • EIS Standards of Care and their evolution from a generic standard to a specific, measurable tool will be discussed.
