Tips for Implementing the Clinic-based, Surveillence Informed (CBSI) Intervention
HIV treatment is crucial to improve the health of people with HIV and to prevent ongoing HIV transmission. Many people with HIV do
not receive regular medical care, and it can be difficult for service providers to systematically identify people who have fallen out of care.
HIV clinics can partner with health department HIV programs to identify individuals who have disengaged from HIV care and offer patients
assistance with re-engagement in care. This partnership requires clinics to share information about patients that appear to be out of care and
health departments to share information from the HIV case registry (surveillance) about whether those individuals are receiving care elsewhere or have left the area. Sharing clinical and public health data can increase the accuracy and efficiency of Data to Care (D2C) efforts, which use data to guide interventions to improve retention in care and viral suppression among people with HIV.
