Introducing DISQ

What Is DISQ?

The goal of the Data Integration, Systems and Quality (DISQ) Team is to enhance the completeness, accuracy and consistency of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) client-level data through capacity building, training and technical assistance (TA) for recipients and providers. The DISQ Team (previously DART) offers TA and support to the RWHAP community on the following data submissions:

DISQ also supports recipients and providers in understanding reporting requirements and best practices in data management including data collection, mapping, integration, quality, and effective use throughout the year.

  • Enhancing data-related capacity and infrastructure
  • Supporting the ongoing collection, use and reporting of RWHAP data

Systems

  • Determining if data systems currently collect required data
  • Helping data system vendors understand and meet reporting requirements
  • Connecting recipients who use the same data system and facilitating peer learning

Quality
