Second Annual HealthHIV State of HIV Primary Care Survey Results
Concerns over rising HIV caseloads among overworked specialists and insufficient reimbursement for HIV services are key findings from the Second Annual HealthHIV State of HIV Primary Care survey. Set against a landscape in which the federal government prepares to extend healthcare coverage to 32-million newly insured individuals (including an estimated 850,000 people living with HIV), the survey reveals a shifting landscape between the readiness of the HIV workforce and its ability to treat the growing number of people living with HIV, especially in primary care settings.
The Second Annual HealthHIV State of HIV Primary Care survey received 1,806 U.S.-based respondents between July 20 and October 28, 2011. Conducted annually, the survey of HIV and primary care providers identifies both individual and environmental features of the HIV primary care landscape, including influences, drivers, readiness, and caseloads, as well as services, funding, and reimbursement.
In conjunction with the survey results, HealthHIV is also
releasing a "Readiness Report" of HIV care providers and primary care
providers, identifying factors among different provider types, which speak to
their readiness to provide HIV care in near future. Additional survey findings
will be released throughout the coming year at select conferences.
