Still Time to Enroll in the end+disparities ECHO Collaborative
From the Center for Quality Improvement and Innovation (CQII) - It's not too late! Last month we kicked off the end+disparities ECHO Collaborative with a series of introductory sessions. Thank you to more than 300 participants. There is already a lot of energy and excitement about this collaborative For those who did not participate in the calls, you can still join in!
About the Collaborative
The end+disparities ECHO Collaborative is a HIV/AIDS Bureau-supported national improvement initiative collaborative to increase viral suppression rates for four disproportionately affected subpopulations of people living with HIV. The selected HIV subpopulations are African American and Latina women, men who have sex with men (MSM) of color, transgender people, and youth. As part of the 18-month Collaborative, participants join virtual special interest groups and partner with other local HIV providers to form regionally-based quality improvement groups.
About the Regional Groups
As part of the Collaborative, regionally-based improvement groups, composed of RWHAP recipients/subrecipients from all Parts, work together to improve the underlying systems of care and advance regional alignment and communication. To facilitate peer learning, all Collaborative participants, regardless of their Regional Group affiliation, will join special interest groups (Affinity Groups). The Affinity Groups, based on the selected subpopulations, will help participants gain improvement insights through content expert perspectives and local case presentations-creating a vibrant community of learning.
At this point we are seeking regional HIV providers to come together and join the Collaborative as a regional improvement group:
- If you are part of an active regional improvement group - get everyone's commitment and enroll
- If you have local HIV providers who want to join but have not yet formed a regional improvement group - seek their commitment to form a regional group and enroll
- If you are a single HIV provider in a region - communicate with other regional HIV providers, introduce the Collaborative and enroll
