ECHO Collaborative

CHSR has been selected to perform an early evaluation of the end+disparities ECHO Collaborative, led by the HRSA Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program and New York State Department of Health’s AIDS Institute, to assess implementation of the initiative and early results of participation on organizational improvement.

The end+disparities ECHO Collaborative aims to reduce disparities in HIV patient outcomes and treatment by training participating organizations in continuous quality improvement practices and supporting the development of a peer network of providers.

Evaluation & Research

The evaluation will include secondary data review; in-depth interviews with a sample of organizations; and a survey of all involved partners regarding current level of involvement, first successes and challenges to CQI project implementation, and utilization of their peer network. This work will give Collaborative leadership early insight as to whether the program is starting to achieve the desired impact on patient outcomes and will identify common routes to these results, as well as identification of groups that may need more support to make the expected progress, thus informing the second half of the initiative’s efforts.
