Project: Improving the timely notification of HIV results
For his CQIP project, Dr. Chokani looked at improvements for the timely notification of HIV test results. Throughout his research, Dr. Chokani found that 25% of the 70 HIV cases he retroactively reviewed hadn’t received their results within 90 days of being tested for HIV, and approximately 50% of new cases were caused by that 25% cohort. Making improvements to the testing and notification process could help those who are HIV-negative to remain negative and to help engage those who are HIV-positive in care.
