  • New HIV/STI System Users: The HIV/STI Systems in the table below require authorization prior to accessing the system. If you need access to any of these systems, submit an access request within SHOARS. Approval will be determined by the assigned SHOARS access staff and management groups.

    Please Note: Requesting authorization to an HIV/STI system (Aphirm, CAREWare, DCH File Transfer, EGrAMS, LMS, MDSS, MIDAP Online) in SHOARS is for tracking purposes only and is not how you will access these systems. SHOARS tracks users who are authorized to access these systems to improve our processes and further protect client data.

    Existing HIV/STI System Users: Once you have created a SHOARS account, Division of HIV and STI Programs (DHSP) staff will manually enter your authorization for any HIV/STI systems you currently access (see examples in table below). You may receive emails from SHOARS indicating our team is requesting access to these systems on your behalf. No action is required on your end and your access to these systems will not be affected. Please periodically review your profile in SHOARS to confirm it accurately displays what HIV/STI systems you currently access.
