UCSF & San Francisco General Hospital – The Silver Project
The San Francisco Department of Public Health’s HIV Health Services (HHS), a clinic housed within San Francisco General Hospital, provides comprehensive HIV care and is working towards becoming a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH).
In May 2012, Informing Change prepared for and initiated consulting services for an evaluation of the PCMH demonstration project at two sites—the UCSF Positive Heath Program Ward 86 Clinic at San Francisco General Hospital and 360 the Positive Care Center at UCSF. This project focuses specifically on people 50 years of age and over living with HIV/AIDS. Informing Change assists in tool development and review, facilitates data collection, provides technical assistance throughout the project and conducts comprehensive analysis.
These data are to shed light on the particular medical and social needs of the HIV positive population over 50 years of age and their experiences within and beyond the clinic.
