Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB 
Review; Comment Request

    Periodically, the Health Resources and Services Administration 
(HRSA) publishes abstracts of information collection requests under 
review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), in compliance with 
the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). To request 
a copy of the clearance requests submitted to OMB for review, call the 
HRSA Reports Clearance Office on (301) 443-1129.
    The following request has been submitted to the Office of 
Management and Budget for review under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 
1995:

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 purpose of these surveys is to conduct a follow-up study to the 
National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB) User and Non-User Surveys of 
2001. In addition, Healthcare Integrity and Protection Data Bank 
(HIPDB) users and non-sers 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 decisionmaking 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.
    The estimate of burden is as follows:
