VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:42 Aug 01, 2007 Jkt 211001 Proposed Project: Opioid Treatment Data Systems for Disaster Planning Project (Pilot)—NEW The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT), has identified a critical need for Opioid Treatment Programs (OTPs, also commonly known as Methadone Clinics) to be able to access limited but specific patient dosage data for patients displaced due to service disruptions affecting the OTP from which they regularly receive treatment (the patient’s ‘Home OTP’). Service disruptions in home OTPs have ranged in cause from events such as the September 11th terrorist attacks or more recently, Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, to more common events such as snow storms or electrical black-outs. The proposed system will ensure that, in such circumstances, patients displaced from their home OTPs will still be able to obtain safe and effective treatment at an alternative OTP (referred to in this project as a ‘Guest OTP’). In reviewing past events involving OTP service disruptions and their impact on patients, SAMHSA, in tandem with numerous stakeholders, established four basic principles that would guide creation of a deliberately simple, centralized Web-based system to house patient data. Such a system would facilitate Guest OTPs in providing safe and effective continuity of treatment for patients temporarily unable to obtain treatment from their Home OTPs due to any form of service disruption. The proposed centralized data system is known as the Opioid Treatment Data Systems for Disaster. Subsequently, in a small sample study of five (5) OTPs, SAMHSA tested a protocol and data PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 collection instrument for use in determining functional requirements for the proposed system. In the fall 2005, SAMHSA provided funding for the current project, to support creation of the necessary infrastructure for a pilot system, to be followed by testing on a regional basis. This pilot project will focus on creating the means by which vital dosage data for OTP patients can be made accessible to Guest OTPs called upon to treat patients of other programs in the event of service disruptions, most specifically, in disaster scenarios, so that patients are not forced during such circumstances to forgo or discontinue treatment. Ultimately, the pilot system will be reviewed to determine its effectiveness and ability to support a national implementation, should funding for such a system become available. This notice is being provided for a survey to be distributed to OTPs in the region(s) selected by SAMHSA to gather information regarding their present data collection and reporting capabilities and practices. Technical information from the surveys will be used exclusively for development of the overall system and to help inform selection of sites best suited for participation as pilot sites for testing of the Opioid Treatment Data Systems for Disaster Planning. OTP respondents will have the option of completing an on-line or paper version of the survey. The survey consists of approximately 25 questions predominantly formatted as yes/no responses with one to two words fill in the blank responses.

Proposed Project: Opioid Treatment Data Systems for Disaster Planning 
Project (Pilot)--NEW

    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration 
(SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT), has identified a 
critical need for Opioid Treatment Programs (OTPs, also commonly known 
as Methadone Clinics) to be able to access limited but specific patient 
dosage data for patients displaced due to service disruptions affecting 
the OTP from which they regularly receive treatment (the patient's 
`Home OTP'). Service disruptions in home OTPs have ranged in cause from 
events such as the September 11th terrorist attacks or more recently, 
Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, to more common events such as snow storms 
or electrical black-outs.
    The proposed system will ensure that, in such circumstances, 
patients displaced from their home OTPs will still be able to obtain 
safe and effective treatment at an alternative OTP (referred to in this 
project as a `Guest OTP'). In reviewing past events involving OTP 
service disruptions and their impact on patients, SAMHSA, in tandem 
with numerous stakeholders, established four basic principles that 
would guide creation of a deliberately simple, centralized Web-based 
system to house patient data. Such a system would facilitate Guest OTPs 
in providing safe and effective continuity of treatment for patients 
temporarily unable to obtain treatment from their Home OTPs due to any 
form of service disruption. The proposed centralized data system is 
known as the Opioid Treatment Data Systems for Disaster. Subsequently, 
in a small sample study of five (5) OTPs, SAMHSA tested a protocol and 
data collection instrument for use in determining functional 
requirements for the proposed system. In the fall 2005, SAMHSA provided 
funding for the current project, to support creation of the necessary 
infrastructure for a pilot system, to be followed by testing on a 
regional basis. This pilot project will focus on creating the means by 
which vital dosage data for OTP patients can be made accessible to 
Guest OTPs called upon to treat patients of other programs in the event 
of service disruptions, most specifically, in disaster scenarios, so 
that patients are not forced during such circumstances to forgo or 
discontinue treatment. Ultimately, the pilot system will be reviewed to 
determine its effectiveness and ability to support a national 
implementation, should funding for such a system become available.
    This notice is being provided for a survey to be distributed to 
OTPs in the region(s) selected by SAMHSA to gather information 
regarding their present data collection and reporting capabilities and 
practices. Technical information from the surveys will be used
