Community Partner Updates

HIV/Hepatitis Testing Team Administrative Portal

The HIV/Hepatitis Testing Team Administrative Portal is launching on March 22.  This new tool will allow partners and subrecipients to get what they need from the testing team.  The portal will eliminate the need for several paper forms and will direct requests to the appropriate staff member.

Almost any routine request can be handled through the portal.  It can be used to request a variety of forms, additional test kits and controls, report issues with test kits, or even request technical assistance.  Once a request is submitted, the portal will automatically alert the appropriate team member(s) so they can respond.

Effective March 22, 2021, all testing-related administrative requests should come through this portal.  The portal can be accessed at https://redcap.link/hhptestingteam.  This link can also be found on the main Community Partners page.

Questions about the portal can be directed to Bryan Collins at bryan.collins@vdh.virginia.gov.  Any problems with the portal should be directed to Miles McKemy at miles.mckemy@vdh.virginia.gov.

Meeting and Training Availability

DDP had previously cancelled and rescheduled trainings due to COVID-19 to protect the health and wellbeing of VDH staff, contracts, and partners.  Meetings and trainings are now being scheduled virtually as needed based on the needs of contracted agencies and community partners.

Quarterly contractor meetings are occurring virtually and are mandatory for HIV prevention and care contractors.  The dates and times of these meetings as well as the login information are provided well in advance of each meeting.

If your agency has a need for training or technical assistance or questions about required quarterly contractor meetings, please contact your contract administrator to discuss your needs.
