CAREWare is a free, easy-to-use, standardized tool for HIV/AIDS service providers to collect client information. It can monitor quality of care at clinics, maintain schedules, track how clients use medications, and produce required reports. The Health Resources and Services Administration developed the software to enable service providers funded by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program to complete required data reports detailing information on the clients they serve. However, any providers working with HIV/AIDS clients may find CAREWare useful for managing and monitoring HIV clinical and supportive care.
