The FTC will obtain the information sought by interrogatories and document requests under Section 6(b) of the FTC Act, 15 U.S.C. 46(b). The FTC will use available information technology (e.g., electronic submission of financial information) to ease the collection of the requested information. It should be noted that subsequent to this notice, any destruction, removal, mutilation, alteration, or falsification of documentary evidence that may be responsive to this information collection within the possession or control of a person, partnership or corporation subject to the FTC Act may be subject to criminal prosecution. 15 U.S.C. 50; see also 18 U.S.C. 1505. The information presented in the study will not identify companyspecific data. See 15 U.S.C. 57b– 2(d)(1)(B). Rather, the Commission anticipates using primarily aggregated totals, on a level sufficient to protect individual companies’ confidential information, to provide a factual summary of the effect of authorized generic entry since 1999. Section 6(f) of the FTC Act, 15 U.S.C. 46(f), bars the Commission from publicly disclosing trade secrets or confidential commercial or financial information it receives from persons pursuant to, among other methods, special orders authorized by Section 6(b) of the FTC Act. Such information also would be exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act. 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4). Moreover, under Section 21(c) of the FTC Act, 15 U.S.C. 57b–2(c), a submitter who designates a submission as confidential is entitled to 10 days’ advance notice of any anticipated public disclosure by the Commission, assuming that the Commission has determined that the information does not, in fact, constitute 6(f) material. Although materials covered under one or more of these various sections are protected by stringent confidentiality constraints, the FTC Act and the Commission’s rules authorize disclosure in limited circumstances (e.g., official requests by Congress, requests from other agencies for law enforcement purposes, administrative or judicial proceedings). Even in those limited contexts, however, the Commission’s rules may afford the submitter advance notice to seek a protective order. See 15 U.S.C. 57b–2(c); 16 CFR 4.9–4.11. Task Total ............................................................................................................... sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Based on preliminary information, the FTC anticipates that it will seek information about 1 to 5 drug products from approximately 130 companies, for 6 to 10 drug products from 20 companies, and for greater than 10 drug products from 40 companies. Thus, the cumulative hours burden to produce documents and prepare the response sought will be approximately 39,040 hours (140 hours x 130 companies + 226 x 20 companies + 408 hours x 40 companies). C. Estimated Cost Burden It is not possible to calculate with precision the labor costs associated with answering the questions and producing the documents requested, as responses will entail participation by management and/or support staff at various compensation levels among many 18:55 Apr 03, 2006 Jkt 208001 The FTC proposes to use three different sets of questions for the three drug company types: Brand-name companies, authorized generic companies, and independent generic companies. The drug products that the FTC will study will be identified for each company. Although the questions vary, the FTC does not anticipate this will have a significant effect on the effort required to respond to them. The FTC has estimated three average response times depending upon the number of drug products for which the company is required to provide a response: Companies with one to five drug products, companies with six to 10 drug products, and companies with more than 10 drug products. The FTC anticipates that the majority of burden hours will be primarily to search, retrieve, and copy relevant documents necessary to answer question number 1 for each of the company types, and that the hours necessary to obtain the financial information will not vary depending upon the number of drug products. The total estimated burden to answer the questions and to produce documents based on the number of drug products identified for each company is based on the following: 6–10 Drug products 1–5 Drug products Organize document and information retrieval ......................................................

Individuals among some or all of those labor categories may be involved in the information collection process. Nonetheless, the FTC has assumed that mid-management personnel and outside legal counsel will handle most of the tasks involved in gathering and producing the responsive information, and has applied an average hourly wage of $250/hour for their labor. Thus, the labor costs per company should range between $35,000 (140 hours × $250/hour) and $102,000 (408 hours × $250/hour). The FTC estimates that the capital or other non-labor costs associated with the information requests will be minimal.

ACTION: Notice of request for nominations. AGENCY: The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) is seeking nominations for members of an AHRQconvened Quality Indicators Workgroup on Composite Measures for the Inpatient Quality Indicators (IQIs) and the Patient Safety Indicators (PSIs) as part of a general workgroup on composite measures. The AHRQ QI Composite Measures General Workgroup and subsequent IQI and PSI sub-workgroups are being formed as part of a structured approach for developing composite measures from the IQI and PSI software tools for public reporting of quality of hospital care at the national and state level. The purpose of this project is to obtain input from interested organizations and individuals on the development of composite quality measures based on hospital discharge data, specifically using the IQI and PSI measures. The Workgroups will evaluate appropriate technical and methodological approaches currently available and will discuss and suggest strategies as to what composite measure methodology would best fit QI user needs. As part of this effort and using the AHRQ PSIs and IQIs, the Workgroup members will be addressing several key issues for the development of composite measures, including but not limited to: • Identifying and defining the quality concept that each composite is intended to measure; • Suggesting and considering the individual quality indicators that should be included in the composite; sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:55 Apr 03, 2006 Jkt 208001 • The manner of weighting with which individual quality indicators could or should be combined; • Evaluation of using conditionspecific quality of care composites (e.g., for cardiovascular disease, or diabetes) or population-specific composites (e.g., pediatrics, women, or geriatrics) or domain specific composites (e.g., surgical, or infections); and • Discussion of the methodological considerations which are appropriate or important when combining quality indicators and the considerations when composites are used for publicly reporting data. For additional information about the AHRQ Quality Indicators, please visit the AHRQ Quality Indicators Web site at https://www.qualityindicators.ahrq.gov. Specifically, the AHRQ QI Composite Measures General Workgroup will consist of up to 15 individuals who have expertise in one or more of the following areas: Statistical methods, hospital quality improvement and patient safety, health services research, and administrative data. To the extent possible, this Workgroup will represent a variety of stakeholder perspectives, specifically including—(1) Consumers, (2) healthcare purchasers, (3) quality improvement organizations, (4) researchers, (5) healthcare professionals, (6) state-based organizations, and (7) Federal health care provider organizations. The Workgroup will be further divided into two subworkgroups to focus on the IQIs and the PSIs separately. Each sub-workgroup will have a series of conference calls to share perspectives, discuss the technical and policy issues surrounding composite measures for each module and will then summarize their discussions for presentation to the AHRQ QI Composite Measures General Workgroup. The AHRQ QI Composite Measures General Workgroup will provide responses to the subworkgroups’ findings. AHRQ will then develop a summary of the discussion in a technical report. This report will be made available for public comment. DATES: Please submit nominations on or before May 4, 2006. Self-nominations are welcome. Third-party nominations must indicate that the individual has been contacted and is willing to serve on one of the workgroups. Notification of selected candidates will be contacted by AHRQ no later than May 15, 2006. ADDRESSES: Nominations can be sent in the form of a letter or e-mail, preferably as an electronic file with an e-mail attachment and should specifically address the submission criteria as noted below. Electronic submissions are PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 strongly encouraged. Responses should be submitted to: AHRQ Quality Indicators Initiative, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, Center for Delivery, Organization and Markets, 540 Gaither Road, Room 5121, Rockville, MD 20850. E-mail: project officer@qualityindicators.ahrq.gov. Submission Criteria To be considered for membership on the AHRQ QI Workgroups, please send the following information for each nominee: 1. A brief nomination letter highlighting experience/knowledge relevant in the development and use of composite performance measures and familiarity with the AHRQ QIs and health care administrative data. (See selection criteria below.) Please include full contact information of nominee: Name, title, organization, mailing address, telephone and fax numbers, and e-mail address). 2. Curriculum vita (with citations to any pertinent publications). Nominee Selection Criteria Nominees should have technical expertise in health care quality measurement development, and a familiarity with statistical methods and risk adjustment strategies in the area of composite measure development. More specifically, each candidate will be evaluated using the following criteria: • Peer-reviewed publications relevant to the development of composite measures; performance measures and reporting; • Expertise in statistical methods relevant to the development of composite measures; • Knowledge of recent composite methodologies published in the literature; • Experience with development of measures based on administrative data and its uses; • Expertise in hospital quality improvement and patient safety; • Familiarity with the AHRQ Quality Indicators and their application; • Experience with application of performance measures for public reporting; and, • Availability to provide written comments and conference calls between late April and early August.
