Ryan White Services Report (RSR)
Beginning January 1, 2009, all Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program grantees and service providers will begin client level data collection for HRSA’s HIV/AIDS Bureau using the new Ryan White Services Report (RSR). The RSR is a data collection and reporting system for reporting information on programs and clients served (Client Level Data).
Submit Your Preliminary RSR for Feedback
The RSR season is upon us. If any part of your program is funded with Ryan White money, you will need to submit an RSR to HRSA at the beginning of 2013 for all of your service data in 2012. Now is the time to review your data so you can be sure that your data is complete and ready for the RSR submission. To help you, we are giving you the opportunity to submit a preliminary RSR to us. We will review your extract and give you feedback so you may make corrections and updates to your data. Your submission WILL NOT BE SENT to HRSA. It is for AIDS Institute use only. Below is a letter from Vida Behn-Chernoff outlining this process. Please download the PDF and follow the instructions included for sumbitting the preliminary RSR. As a reminder, all data submissions to the AIDS Institute must be through the Health Commerce System (HCS). I have posted the instructions for submitting the RSR Extract through the HCS if you are not familiar with this new requirement. Click here for the step-by-step HCS screen shots and instructions.
