About Standardized Performance
Recipients funded by the RWHAP differ in many important aspects, including the characteristics of the clients they serve. The RWHAP Compass Dashboard provides standardized performance tools to support jurisdictional comparison and evaluation.
Standardized performance allows “like-to-like” comparison of jurisdictions that may serve different populations.
Step 1: Standardized Outcome Measure
A statistical model is applied to the observed outcome measure (viral suppression or retention in care) that adjusts for key client characteristics.
When the Benchmarking Performance by Jurisdiction screen (Figure 6) first loads, it displays the most recent data for the first alphabetical state (Alabama). Select a different jurisdiction from the dropdown menus to update the view.
Observed Outcome Measure by Year
This line chart plots the observed viral suppression or retention in care over a five-year period.
This donut chart shows the observed viral suppression or retention in care for the selected data year. It also shows the national goal for the selected outcome measure.
This gauge shows the standardized performance for the selected outcome measure. A score in the first quintile is in the bottom 20%; a score in the third quintile is in the middle 20%; and a score in the fifth quintile is in the top 20%.
This icon shows whether the observed rate of the selected outcome measure for the jurisdiction has increased, decreased, or stayed the same as compared to the previous data year.
This icon is a green checkmark if the jurisdiction has met the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS) indicator for the selected outcome measure based on their observed rate of the selected outcome measure. It is a gray “x,” if the national goal has not yet been met.
Performance among Priority Populations
These figures show performance among specific, priority populations and include the percentage of clients within that population and the standardized performance, trend, and national goal icons.
