Indicator Does MMP Adhere to Indicators? Question ID Questions Collecting Data Related to Indicator
Proportion of people with diagnosed HIV infection who had an unmet need for transportation services to facilitate access to medical care and related services at least once in the preceding 12 months Yes   From questionnaire:
A33a

•    During the past 12 months, did you get transportation assistance? (No; Yes; Refused to answer; Don’t know)

A33b

•    During the past 12 months, have you needed transportation assistance? (No; Yes; Refused to answer; Don’t know) Transportation data also captured in the following questions:

    A6

•    What was the main reason you did not go to a doctor, nurse, or other health care worker for HIV medical care within 3 months of testing positive for HIV? (“Unable to get transportation” is a response option)

    A7a

•    What was the main reason you didn’t visit a doctor, nurse, or other health care worker for HIV medical care during the past 6 months? (“Unable to get transportation” is a response option)

NOTE: Although the indicators for clinical HIV care and mental health and substance abuse recommended in the committee’s first report are targeted toward adults, they apply to adolescents (≥13 years) as well (IOM, 2012). The Medical Monitoring Project does not include children or adolescents; the population of inference is individuals with HIV ≥18 who are in care. Therefore, as currently designed the MMP does not provide data to estimate indicators for individuals under the age of 18. MHF = Medical History Form; SP = Surveillance Period; SPIF = Surveillance Period Inpatient Form; SPSF = Surveillance Period Summary Form; VL = Viral Load.
