Virginia Ryan White Part B Program Quality Standards

The RWHAP Part B Quality Management Program (QMP) exists to ensure the highest quality core medical care and supportive services for PLWH in Virginia, as well as to provide medication access to them through statewide leadership and stakeholder collaboration.

The aim of the RWHAP Part B QMP is to continuously improve the quality of care and services of the HIV, and to be compliant with recognized Department of Health and Human Services Guidelines, National Priorities, HRSA Monitoring and Service Standards, and research-based best practices.

Below you will find The Virginia Department of Health (VDH), Division of Disease Prevention (DDP), HIV Care Services (HCS) Unit, Ryan White Part B Standards for Case Management and other Core and Support Services.

Case Management Standards
VDH convened an HIV Case Management Task Force in 2013-2014 to revise and update the model of Ryan White (RW) Part B-funded HIV Case Management being delivered in Virginia.
The aims of these Case Management Standards are to:

  • Set a minimum level for the quality of Case Management service;
  • Provide a resource to case managers to use for improving the quality of services rendered to PLWHA; and
  • Support VDH efforts to assure a consistent standard of Case Management no matter where clients live or what problems they experience.
