Building upon 2010's well-received demonstration on how a New Jersey TGA utilized a Web-Based Needs Assessments for in-care and out-of-care populations while saving money and producing better data, the presentation will demonstrate how such strategies have been implemented by four different grant types in three different regional geographies: The State of Minnesota’s Part B grantee, the Minneapolis-St. Paul Part A grantee, California’s Riverside and San Bernardino County’s part A grantee and North Carolina’s Access Network of Care Collaborative (which includes 5 Part C and 2 Part D grantees). Each program will detail how it used an Online Evidenced Based approach to improve its response to the epidemic via analyzing needs and barriers relating to reducing HIV incidence, increasing access to care, optimizing health outcomes, reducing HIV-related health disparities and strengthening competitiveness for scarce financial resources.

Learning Objectives:

  • Workshop participants will be able to see how a paradigm of improved data collection strengthens grant applications, provides answers to community planning bodies, illuminates counterintuitive insights important for the description of barriers and helps positively to influence health planning and policy recommendations.
  • By end of workshop, participants will be able to describe how to adopt and adapt strategies and tools to deliver web-based technology to the community and planning bodies while overcoming digital divides and perceptions of digital divides.
  • Participants will be able to understand the challenges and benefits of an innovative program for web-based data collection and build upon lessons learned by modifying tools used by other programs.
