The New York City Health Department has launched its Ryan White Care Coordination program for People Living with HIV as well as people coinfected with HIV and Hepatitis C (HCV).  Care coordination provides an expanded form of HIV medical case management, including:

  • Ensuring that people living with HIV infection are linked to care in a timely manner.
  • Developing a patient-centered care plan that emphasizes continuous adherence to care and antiretroviral treatment; which include Direct Observed Therapy for both HIV and HCV treatment.
  • Assisting patients in obtaining needed social services, including accompanying patients to appointments if necessary, and maintaining patients in care via navigation of medical and social services.
  • Using care coordinators to assist patients with accessing HIV and HCV care, communicating with providers, and finding needed resources.
  • Coaching (a form of active health promotion and counseling) patients to become self-sufficient so that they can manage their medical and social needs autonomously.
