Ryan White program grantees vary widely in many ways, including their ability to collect, manage, use and share high quality data. JSI collaborated with HRSA's HIV/AIDS Bureau to help these grantees streamline and improve their data gathering and reporting capacity. JSI conducted a comprehensive needs and capacity assessment of more than 100 grantees from across the country, as well as a focused study of 18 grantees to assess documentation and reporting of Pap tests. Based on these findings, JSI provided TA services through distance-based, on-site and product development activities, and developed Data Academy, a series of seven web-based training modules on topics including how to simplify data collection, get data from electronic sources, improve data quality and data security, and collect data from staff and providers.
