Online HIV dashboards recognized as beacon of clinical care transparency

Paul Levy, former president and CEO of Boston-based Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, published a blog post Dec. 7, recognizing the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene's HIV Care Continuum Dashboards as "an excellent example of clinical care transparency with regard to HIV treatment."

The HIV Care Continuum Dashboards support and enhance local efforts towards the goals set by the National HIV/AIDS Strategy by presenting hospitals' performance on HIV care measures such as timely linkage to care, viral load suppression and viral load below transmission threshold.

"In a simple graphic we can see the proportion of patients in care with suppressed viral load, and the trend from 2011 to 2014," wrote Mr. Levy. "Congratulations to [Demetre Daskalakis, MD, assistant commissioner of the New York City DOHMH's Bureau of HIV Prevention and Control] for his leadership in this arena — and to his staff for their accomplishments."
