Development of a City-Wide Cohort of HIV-Infected Persons in Care in the District of Columbia: The DC Cohort


Brief description of study

The goal of the DC Cohort is to establish a clinic-based city-wide longitudinal cohort that will describe clinical outcomes, and improve the quality of care for outpatients with Human Immunodeficiency Virus/Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (HIV/AIDS) in Washington, DC.

Detailed Study Description

All major community and academic clinics treating HIV-infected persons in the District of Columbia (DC) will initially be included in the development of a city-wide "DC Cohort" of HIV-infected persons in care, with consideration to be given subsequently to the inclusion of large private physician practices. Socio-demographics, risk factors, treatments, diagnoses, labs and procedures documented in outpatient medical record systems will be included in the DC Cohort database. Routine reports will be generated every six months for sites comparing their participants' socio-demographics, clinical status, treatments, and outcomes to all other data in the DC Cohort database, and other comparisons specifically requested by sites. All sites will be provided analytic support in research areas of interest.
