Grant Amounnt: Approximately $1,800,000 is expected to be available to fund twenty grantees.This announcement solicits applications for the Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) fiscal year (FY) 2013 HIT Capacity Building Initiative for Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) Grantees. The SPNS Program supports the development of innovative models of HIV care to quickly respond to the emerging needs of clients served by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Programs. SPNS evaluates the effectiveness of the design, implementation, utilization, cost, and health related outcomes of these models, while promoting the dissemination and replication of successful projects. The SPNS Program also supports special programs to develop standard electronic client information data systems to improve the ability of grantees to report grantee-level and client-level data to the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). This initiative will support grantees funded under Part B Grants to States and Territories to improve and enhance their health information technology (HIT) capacity to collect and report AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) data (including grantee-level data and client-level data) to the HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB). Grants will be awarded to eligible entities based on whether the funding will promote collecting and reporting of both ADAP grantee-level and client-level data, as it relates to the requirements of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program. Funding will allow grantee organizations to purchase qualified HIT systems to improve and enhance their current HIT data collection and reporting capacity. Awardees will be required to evaluate and document the entire system implementation process.
