ATHN Data Quality Counts Award Recipients Announced.
ATHN is pleased to announce the recipients of the newly designed ATHN Data Quality Counts 5.1 funding. The awards support HTCs with the collection and maintenance of quality data in a standardized format. The recipients have been selected through a competitive review process. Consistent with the priority for this funding period, enriching the ATHNdataset, the new approach links funding to submission of complete core data for authorized patients.

Funding 5.1 Application Process is now closed.
The submission deadline was March 8, 2013.
The next generation of ATHN Data Quality Counts is now available with a new model to help HTCs without adequate resources continue to collect and maintain quality data in a standardized format.
ATHN Data Quality Counts, through a competitive review process, provides critical funding to treatment centers to maintain secure, complete, and accurate data for the ATHNdataset. The data can be used to support research and improve outcomes.
Funding for this competitive award will be based on overall strength of the application, demonstration of the capacity to fulfill ATHN's priorities, and a compelling financial need. For applicants with 340b programs, the 340b program must be an early stage program (e.g., less than two years old) or one not generating significant program income. Successful applicants will receive an initial $2,500 for base funding and $50.00 per patient after their comprehensive data has been entered. The funding cycle will cover the 12-month period beginning approximately April 15, 2013.
Enriching the ATHNdataset is the priority for this funding period. Enriching the ATHNdataset requires centers to:
- Secure patient authorizations;
- Enter/update complete core datasets for those patients who have been authorized;
- Perform data quality audits.
Applicant organizations must
- be an ATHN Affiliate
- use WebTracker
Note: Applicant organizations that have not been funded previously as well as those funded in previous rounds are eligible. All must apply.
