Proposed Project National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NHAMCS) 2007– 2008 [OMB No. 0920–0278)— Extension—National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NHAMCS) has been conducted annually since 1992. The purpose of NHAMCS is to meet the needs and demands for statistical information about the provision of ambulatory medical care services in the United States. Ambulatory services are rendered in a wide variety of settings, including physicians’ offices and hospital outpatient and emergency departments. The target universe of the NHAMCS is in-person visits made to outpatient departments (OPDs) and emergency departments (EDs) of nonFederal, short-stay hospitals (hospitals with an average length of stay of less than 30 days) or those whose specialty is general (medical or surgical) or children’s general. NHAMCS was initiated to complement the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS, OMB No. 0920–0234) which provides similar data concerning patient visits to physicians’ offices. NAMCS and NHAMCS are the principal sources of data on approximately 90 percent of ambulatory care provided in the United States. NHAMCS provides a range of baseline data on the characteristics of the users and providers of ambulatory medical care. Data collected include patients’ demographic characteristics, reason(s) for visit, physicians’ diagnosis(es), diagnostic services, medications, and disposition. These data, together with trend data, may be used to monitor the effects of change in the health care system, for the planning of health services, improving medical education, determining health care work force needs, and assessing the health status of the population. In addition, a Cervical Cancer Screening Supplement (CCSS) will be added to collect information on cervical cancer screening practices from hospital OPD clinics. It will allow the CDC/National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP) to evaluate cervical cancer screening methods and the use of HPV tests. E:\FR\FM\12JAN1.SGM 12JAN1
