The AIDS Foundation of Chicago (AFC) is pleased to announce the top eight Chicago-area care organizations in its HIV medical and non-medical case management network for Dec. 1, 2016 – Nov. 30, 2017. By connecting people living with HIV to case managers who help them achieve their health goals, these eight organizations support more than 711 members of AFC’s 5,869 clients.

|Erie Family Health Center|
How are these top-performing organizations identified? AFC performs a site visit each year with all organizations in its case management network. Seven performance measures are taken into consideration: the number of face-to-face visits between case managers and clients, number of assessments and care plans created, client attendance at medical visits, adherence counseling sessions, viral load collection and provider case conferencing.
At a ceremony in April, these agencies (and the top three non-medical case management agencies) received awards and recognition to mark their achievement. View photos from the ceremony here.
AFC is grateful for the hard work of all 25 agencies in our case management network and all 112 Ryan White case managers. AFC also thanks the Illinois Department of Public Health and Chicago Department of Public Health for their programmatic leadership and funding of the case management system. Major financial support is provided by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program.
