of 1995, Pub. L. 104-13), the Health Resources and Services 
Administration (HRSA) publishes periodic summaries of proposed projects 
being developed for submission to the Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. To request more 
information on the proposed project or to obtain a copy of the data 
collection plans and draft instruments, call the HRSA Reports Clearance 
Officer on (301) 443-1129.
    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the agency, including whether the information shall have practical 
utility; (b) The accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information; (c) Ways to enhance the quality, 
utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) Ways 
to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, 
including through the use of automated collection techniques or other 
forms of information technology.

Proposed Project: National Practitioner Data Bank and Healthcare 
Integrity and Protection Data Bank Market Surveys and Survey of Use of 
Data Bank Information by Queriers: New

    The Health Resources and Services Administration plans to conduct 
an evaluation of the National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB) and the 
Healthcare Integrity and Protection Data Bank (HIPDB). The purpose of 
these surveys is to conduct a follow-up study to the NPDB User and Non-
User Surveys of 2001. In addition, HIPDB users and non-users will be 
included in this study. The study will evaluate the effectiveness of 
the NPDB and the HIPDB as flagging systems, sources of information, and 
decision making tools. It will also determine user satisfaction with 
the

process, use, and information provided by the NPDB and HIPDB.
    Surveys will be administered to entities that report to and/or 
query the NPDB and HIPDB, including users who query either the NPDB 
and/or HIPDB and who receive a ``match'', i.e. copies of adverse 
actions concerning a queried practitioner. A sample of Queriers who 
received a matched response will be surveyed about the information 
received. NPDB and HIPDB non-users will also be surveyed. Eligible NPDB 
and HIPDB users will be asked to complete a Web-based Internet survey 
or a computer-assisted telephone interview (CATI). NPDB and HIPDB non-
users will complete either a Web or CATI, or will be transferred to an 
interactive voice response (IVR) system during the CATI to complete the 
survey.
    Data gathered from the survey will be compared with similar 
information from previous surveys of users and non-users and will 
provide HRSA with the information necessary to improve the usability of 
the NPDB and HIPDB.
