Ryan White QM Program Featured in HRSA Webinar

January 9, 2014

The Georgia Department of Public Health’s Ryan White Part B Quality Management (QM) program has built its reputation on ensuring the highest quality of medical care and supportive services for people living with HIV/AIDS. The program will have the opportunity to share their work and best practices with other state grantees during a webinar sponsored by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) on Wednesday.

The QM team’s good work and high standards caught the attention of two members of a recent HRSA site visit team, including the project officer. Following the site visit, HRSA invited the team to participate in the webinar, which will be held Jan. 15, 3:00-4:00 p.m. with the topic of “Building a Quality Management Program.”

Accolades are not unfamiliar to the QM program. In 2008, the program received an award from the National Quality Center for infrastructure development. Eva Williams, HIV nurse consultant and the quality management team lead, said the program’s success can be credited to the talented statewide staff who run the program every day.

“Our statewide presence and the impacts that we have had are a direct result of the passion and dedication of every member of our team, especially staff in the districts and consumers,” Williams said. “It is incredible to have our program recognized by HRSA as a robust program that they would like to highlight nationally.”

Williams said the webinar presentation will focus on the development and implementation of the Ryan White Part B Quality Management Program, including successes and challenges.
