Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 26136-26137 [E7-8799]

Download as PDF 26136 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 88 / Tuesday, May 8, 2007 / Notices The following request has been submitted to OMB for review under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995: Proposed Project: National Practitioner Data Bank for Adverse Information on Physicians and Other Health Care Practitioners: Regulations and Forms (OMB No. 0915–0126)—Extension The National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB) was established through Title IV of Public Law (Pub. L.) 99–660, the Health Care Quality Improvement Act of 1986, as amended. Final regulations governing the NPDB are codified at 45 CFR part 60. Responsibility for NPDB implementation and operation resides in the Bureau of Health Professions, Health Resources and Services Administration, Department of Health and Human Services. The NPDB began operation on September 1, 1990. The intent of Title IV of Pub. L. 99– 660 is to improve the quality of health care by encouraging hospitals, State licensing boards, professional societies, and other entities providing health care services, to identify and discipline those who engage in unprofessional behavior; and to restrict the ability of incompetent physicians, dentists, and other health care practitioners to move from State-toState without disclosure of the practitioner’s previous damaging or incompetent performance. The NPDB acts primarily as a flagging system; its principal purpose is to facilitate comprehensive review of practitioners’ professional credentials and background. Information on medical malpractice payments, adverse licensure actions, adverse clinical privileging actions, adverse professional No. of respondents Regulation citation society actions, and Medicare/Medicaid exclusions is collected from, and disseminated to, eligible entities. It is intended that NPDB information should be considered with other relevant information in evaluating a practitioner’s credentials. The reporting forms and the request for information forms (query forms) are accessed, completed, and submitted to the NPDB electronically through the NPDB Web site at http://www.npdbhipdb.hrsa.gov. All reporting and querying is performed through this secure Web site. Due to overlap in requirements for the Healthcare Integrity and Protection Data Bank (HIPDB), some of the NPDB’s burden has been subsumed under the HIPDB.

ACTION: Revision to awarding factors. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is announcing a change to the awarding factors under the HRSA–07–069 ‘‘New VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:36 May 07, 2007 Jkt 211001 Access Points in High Poverty Counties’’ funding opportunity [issued on Grants.gov March 14, 2007] as they relate to awards made under the HRSA– 07–067 ‘‘New Access Points’’ funding opportunity for the President’s first Health Centers Initiative [issued on Grants.gov October 6, 2006]. In making award decisions for fiscal year (FY) 2007, HRSA will now consider granting the same organization a new access point award under HRSA– 07–067 and HRSA–07–069. HRSA will consider more than one FY 2007 new access point award to an organization if, and only if each application submitted (by the same organization for the two different funding opportunities) proposes a separate and distinct project to serve different counties. That is, there must be no overlap or duplication of service area, target population, or sites. (Under previous HRSA policy, if an organization receives a grant award in FY 2007 under the first opportunity, HRSA–07–067, it could not be awarded funds in FY 2007 under HRSA–07–069). Applicants for HRSA–07–069 should also be aware that each new access point application must be complete and must be able to stand alone. The changes announced in this Federal Register Notice do not impact any HRSA policy for eligibility under the HRSA–07–069. Organizations PO 00000 Frm 00067 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 continue to be eligible to submit one application under HRSA–07–069, irrespective of whether they applied under HRSA–07–067 or not. Additionally, all other awarding factors detailed in HRSA–07–069 remain the same. Reference: HRSA–07–069 is available online via the HRSA Web site at: http://www.hrsa.gov/grants/ technicalassistance/pi2nap.htm or http://www.grants.gov.
