Abt Associates: Bold thinkers driving real-world impact
Abt Associates is assessing the status of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) services during the early and later stages of implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). This research involves sampling Ryan White provider sites, analyzing service utilization and clinical outcomes data, as well as conducting interviews with clinical and other care providers to assess the impact of the ACA on RWHAP providers and their Ryan White clients. One of the key goals of this study is to identify service needs of people living with HIV/AIDS and ways these services can be maintained across payment systems. Abt’s study will help the Health Resources and Services Administration better understand the programs and services provided to people with HIV and how these programs will be affected by the ACA.
