HIV Open Data Project Evaluation

a PSC Research Project

Investigator:   Amy M. Pienta

The National Opinion Research Center (NORC) at the University of Chicago is responding to an RFTO from U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) with the goal of conducting an evaluation of federally funded HIV programs collecting data. Federally-funded HIV prevention, treatment and care services programs collect inconsistent indicators that limit the ability to harmonize data across programs to improve outcomes. The Open Government Directive seeks to improve comparability and access to data. NORC and its associates (including ICPSR) are proposing to evaluate the capabilities for these programs to harmonize elements of their data. ICPSR will participate in regular meetings with NORC (and HHS), provide project status updates, contribute to the streamlining review and analysis, conduct interviews with stakeholders, contribute to a summary report (draft and final), and attend a technical expert panel meeting. ICPSR will be a sub-contractor of NORC.

Funding Period: 09/18/2012 to 09/30/2013
