Now that models of care for numerous HIV-related conditions have been defined, a knowledge base exists for developing protocols of appropriate, high-quality care for HIV-infected patients. Bronx Municipal Hospital Center in New York City plans to implement a monitoring and evaluation program for HIV-related care that would establish protocols and indicators of quality and appropriateness, monitor compliance with protocols, and generate recommendations for improving care. At present, Bronx Municipal's AIDS consultation service has drafted guidelines for developing indicators of appropriate diagnosis, clinical course, and drug usage for HIV-infected patients, as well as guidelines for reviewing medical records.
