Affected Entities: Potential applicants and/or grantees who received our grant application kit. Also applicants who have received a grant from FMCS. Frequency: a. Three of the forms, the SF–424, LM–6, and LM–9 are submitted at the applicant/grantee’s discretion. b. To conduct the quarterly submissions, LM–7 and LM–8 forms are used. Less than quarterly reports would deprive FMCS of the opportunity to provide prompt technical assistance to deal with those problems identified in the report. c. Once per application. The LM–3 is the only form to which a ‘‘similar information’’ requirement could apply. That form takes the requirement into consideration by accepting recent audit reports in lieu of applicant completion of items C2 through 9 and items D1 through 3. Burden: Application for Federal Assistance (SF–424) is an OMB form which we do not include in the burden. We have not added to it; however, we have deleted the requirements for completion of sections C, D, and E. We received approximately 113 respondents. Request for Advance or Reimbursement SF–270 (LM–6) is an OMB form with no agency additions. The number of respondents is approximately 37 and estimated time per response is 30 minutes. Project Performance (LM–8) approximately 37 respondents and estimated time per response is 30 minutes. Financial Status Report SF–269a) (LM–7) is an OMB form with no agency additions. The estimated time per response is 30 minutes and approximately 37 respondents. FMCS Grants Program Evaluation Questionnaire (LM–9) form number of respondents is approximately 12 respondents and estimated time per response is 60 minutes, and Accounting System and Financial Capability Questionnaire (LM–3) approximately 28 respondents and estimated time per response is 60 minutes. Abstract: Except for the FMCS Forms LM–3 and LM–9, the forms under consideration herein are either required or recommended in OMB Circulars. The two exceptions are non-recurring forms, the former a questionnaire sent only to non-public sector potential grantees and the latter a questionnaire sent only to former grantees for voluntary completion and submission. The collected information is used by FMCS to determine annual applicant suitability, to monitor quarterly grant project status, and for on-going program evaluation. If the information were not collected, there could be no accounting VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:09 Oct 10, 2007 Jkt 214001 for the activities of the program. Actual use has been the same as intended use. II. Request for Comments The OMB is particularly interested in comments which: (i) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (ii) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimates of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (iii) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (iv) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated electronic collection technologies or other forms of information technology, e.g. permitting electronic and fax submission of responses.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: http://www.hhs.gov/healthit/ahic/ confidentiality/. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The American Health Information Community Confidentiality, Privacy, and Security (CPS) workgroup is seeking public feedback on the following. To submit comments via email (preferred), please send them to cps-wkg@altarum.org (to ensure that your e-mail is received and appropriately filed, we ask that you put ‘‘CPS Public Comment’’ in the subject line of your e-mail) or mail your comments to Steven Posnack, Office of the National Coordinator (ONC), 330 C Street, SW., Suite 4090, Washington, DC 20201. Written testimony submitted by the public is not required to address all of the questions listed below, and answers to any or all of the questions will be accepted so long as they comply with the following guidelines. Comments should be double-spaced and submitted via e-mail or mail by 5 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on November 30, 2007 in order to receive consideration by the CPS workgroup. On June 12th, 2007 the AHIC accepted for recommendation to the Secretary of HHS the following recommendation made by the CPS Workgroup: All persons and entities, excluding consumers, that participate directly in, or comprise, an electronic health information exchange network, through which individually identifiable health information is stored, compiled, transmitted, modified or accessed should be required to meet enforceable privacy and security criteria at least equivalent to any relevant HIPAA requirements (45 CFR Parts 160 and 164). Furthermore, any person or entity that functions as a Business Associate (as described in 45 CFR 160.103) and participates directly in, or comprises, an electronic health information exchange network should be required to meet enforceable privacy and security criteria at least equivalent to any relevant HIPAA requirements, independent of those established by contractual arrangements (such as a Business Associate Agreement as provided for in HIPAA). Over the past several months the CPS workgroup has been evaluating, at a PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 57945 more granular level, two key questions raised by the recommendation above. What constitutes a ‘‘relevant’’ HIPAA requirement for particular ‘‘direct participants’’ and what, if any, additional confidentiality, privacy, security protections may be needed beyond those already contained in the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules (the Rules) in order to ensure trust in electronic health information exchange. Given that the Rules were written to be applicable to health plans, healthcare clearinghouses, and health care provides conducting certain electronic health care transactions, we understand that some persons or entities may have an appropriate reason for not needing to meet a particular requirement. To date, the CPS Workgroup is considering recommendations regarding the relevancy of the following HIPAA requirements: (1) § 164.520 Notice of privacy practices for protected health information; (2) § 164.52 Access of individuals to protected health information; and (3) § 164.526 Amendment of protected health information, with respect to organizations such as health information exchanges (HIEs) and regional health information organizations (RHIOs). The Workgroup would like to encourage HIEs, RHIOs and other similar organizations to submit answers to the following questions in order for the Workgroup to validate or refine our current thinking. (1) Please describe your electronic health information exchange model. a. What type(s) of health information do you exchange and for what purpose(s)? b. Who participates in your network (e.g., providers, patients, insurers, labs)? c. How do you exchange health information? i. Do you maintain a ‘‘repository’’ where records/health information is stored in one location? If so, is it by provider or as one comprehensive record? ii. Do you use a record locator (where records reside in numerous locations)? iii. If neither, please describe. (2) Have you established business associate contracts or data sharing agreements? If so, with whom (by category of entity)? Have you established contracts or data sharing agreements with all of the participants in your network? If not, why not? (3) What level of participation do you provide to individuals (e.g. patients/ consumers)? a. Do you provide individuals with a phone number and contact person? E:\FR\FM\11OCN1.SGM 11OCN1
