ACTION: Request for Information. SUMMARY: The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning Evaluation (ASPE) is developing a national inventory of comparative effectiveness research (CER) and CER-related information. This initiative is driven by the American Recovery and VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:49 Jul 16, 2010 Jkt 220001 Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) which provided $1.1 billion for research and development in the area of CER. ARRA allocated $400 million to the Office of the Secretary (OS) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), $400 million to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and $300 million to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. ARRA also established the Federal Coordinating Council for CER, which, after significant public input, developed a strategic framework and recommended high-level priorities for OS funds. While the FCC’s Report to Congress drew on an initial CER inventory focused on federal investments, the process of cataloguing CER activities and infrastructure will be critical to tracking ongoing and future investments in CER. An important component of this effort is creating an inventory of CER to ensure that patients, clinicians, and other decision makers can identify and locate relevant CER in a timely manner. ASPE seeks input on approaches to developing a CER Inventory that capture ongoing and existing CER in the United States. This inventory will be accessible to the public, including patients, clinicians, and policymakers, through a web-based system. Comments should focus on appropriate resources and approaches for developing the CER Inventory, rather than the methodology of CER or suggestions for particular CER studies that should be included in the CER Inventory. Requested information includes suggestions regarding sources of CER and ways to encourage participation in the inventory; comments related to categorizing content; and approaches to ensure the CER Inventory is useful and sustainable over time. DATES: Submit comments by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on August 9, 2010. ADDRESSES: Written or electronic comments should be submitted to HHS as directed below. Comments should be identified by referring to the ‘‘CER Inventory’’, and may be submitted to the Department of HHS by one of the following methods: • Federal eRulemaking Portal: http:// www.regulations.gov. Follow the instructions for submitting comments. • Mail: Written comments (one original and two copies) may be mailed to: Department of Health and Human Services, Attention: CER Inventory, Hubert H.
