Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Services Standards (RWHAPSS)

The purpose of these service standards is to outline the elements and expectations all Ryan White service providers are to follow when implementing a specific service category. Service Standards define the minimal acceptable levels of quality in service delivery and to ensure that a uniformity of service exists in the Washington, DC Eligible Metropolitan Area (EMA). As such that customers/patients of these services categories receive the same quality of service regardless of where or by whom the services are provided. Service Standards are essential in defining and ensuring that consistent quality care is offered to all customers/patients and will be used as contract requirements, in program monitoring, and in quality management.
