The ADAP provides medications for the treatment of HIV disease. Program funds may also be used to purchase health insurance for eligible clients or for services that enhance access, adherence, and monitoring of drug treatments. Each of the 50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and several Territories receive ADAP grants. As part of the funding requirements, ADAP grantees submit quarterly reports that include information on patients served, pharmaceuticals prescribed, pricing, and other sources of support to provide AIDS medication treatment, eligibility requirements, cost data, and coordination with Medicaid. Each quarterly report requests updates from programs on number of patients served, type of pharmaceuticals prescribed, and prices paid to provide medication. The first quarterly report of each ADAP fiscal year (due in July of each year) also requests information that only changes annually (e.g., State funding, drug formulary, eligibility criteria for enrollment, and cost-saving strategies including coordinating with Medicaid). The quarterly report represents the best method for HRSA to determine how ADAP grants are being expended and to provide answers to requests from Congress and other organizations.

Proposed Project: Ryan White HIV/ AIDS Program: Client-Level Data Reporting System: (OMB No. 0915– 0323)—Extension The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program’s client-level data reporting system, the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Services Report or Ryan White Services Report (RSR), created in 2008 by HRSA, is designed to collect information from grantees, as well as their subcontracted service providers, funded under Parts A, B, C, and D, and the Part F Minority AIDS Initiative of the Title XXVI of the Public Health Service Act (Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program). The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program provides the programs with the flexibility to respond effectively to the changing HIV epidemic. Its emphasis is on providing life-saving and life-extending services for people living with HIV/AIDS across the country, and on targeting resources to areas that have the greatest needs. All parts of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program specify HRSA’s responsibilities in the administration of grant funds, the allocation of funds, the evaluation of programs for the population served, and the improvement of the quality of care. Accurate records of the providers receiving Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program funding, the services provided, and the clients served continue to be critical to the implementation of the legislation and thus are necessary for HRSA to fulfill its responsibilities. The RSR provides data on the characteristics of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program-funded grantees, their contracted service providers, and the clients being served with program funds. The reporting system consists of two online data forms: the Grantee Report, completed by all grantees, and the Service Provider Report, completed by all subcontracted service providers.

The client record contains information on demographic status, HIV medical and support services received, and HIV clinical information. The RSR provides the grantees with the requisite information to assess quality of care and unmet need, and the ability to more accurately and efficiently report these figures to HRSA and other funding agencies than is possible with an aggregate data reporting system. In addition, HRSA will be able to perform detailed analyses and to characterize accurately the number of clients served by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program and the outcomes of the program services on a national scale. Because grantees associate a unique client identifier that is encrypted before transfer to each client record, HRSA is able to link data for clients across Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program-funded grantees and their subcontracted service providers. With an increased emphasis on grantee accountability and linking performance to budget, the RSR will be used to ensure compliance with the requirements of the legislation; to evaluate the progress of programs; to monitor grantee and provider performance; to measure the Government Performance and Result Act (GPRA) and the Performance Assessment Rating Tool (PART) goals; and to meet reporting responsibilities to the Department, Congress, and OMB. In addition to meeting the goal of accountability to Congress, clients, advocacy groups, and the general public, information collected through the RSR is critical for HRSA, State and local grantees, and individual providers. Through the RSR, these groups will assess the status of existing HIV-related service delivery systems, investigate trends in service utilization, and identify areas of greatest need.

Proposed Project: HRSA AIDS Drug Assistance Program Quarterly Report--
(OMB No. 0915-0294)--Extension

    HRSA's AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) is funded through Part B 
of Title XXVI of the Public Health Service Act, the Ryan White HIV/AIDS 
Program, which provides grants to States and Territories. The ADAP 
provides medications for the treatment of HIV disease. Program funds 
may also be used to purchase health insurance for eligible clients or 
for services that enhance access, adherence, and monitoring of drug 
treatments.
    Each of the 50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and 
several Territories receive ADAP grants. As part of the funding 
requirements, ADAP grantees submit quarterly reports that include 
information on patients served, pharmaceuticals prescribed, pricing, 
and other sources of support to provide AIDS medication treatment, 
eligibility requirements, cost data, and coordination with Medicaid. 
Each quarterly report requests updates from programs on number of 
patients served, type of pharmaceuticals prescribed, and prices paid to 
provide medication. The first quarterly report of each ADAP fiscal year 
(due in July of each year) also requests information that only changes 
annually (e.g., State funding, drug formulary, eligibility criteria for 
enrollment, and cost-saving strategies including coordinating with 
Medicaid).
    The quarterly report represents the best method for HRSA to 
determine how ADAP grants are being expended and to provide answers to 
requests from Congress and other organizations.
    The estimated annual burden is as follows:
