Quality Statement
The Oregon HIV Care and Treatment Program (HCT) is committed to developing, evaluating and continually improving a statewide, quality continuum of HIV care, treatment and supportive services that meets the identified needs of persons living wtih HIV and their families, ensures equitable access and decreases health disparities.  The HCT Program supports this mission by gathering data and information about the services delivered by HCT and its contractors, analyzing this information to measure outcomes and quality of services, reporting this analysis in order to identify areas requiring needed planning, and implementing improvement activities in order to meet program goals.


Quality Management Plan
Improving and assuring quality services for persons living with HIV begins with planning. The HIV Care and Treatment Program's Quality management (QM) program includes HIV program leaders who are responsible for planning and prioritizing quality improvement goals and projects for the year, and establishing performance measures.  The Quality Management Plan outlines how the QM program is structured and how the QM program establishes responsibility and accountability for performance measurement and ongoing program evaluation and improvement.
