    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of

the agency, including whether the information shall have practical

Proposed Project: Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) Uniform Data 
System (OMB No. 0915-0193--Revision)

    The Uniform Data System (UDS) contains the annual reporting 
requirements for the cluster of primary care grantees funded by the 
Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). The UDS includes 
reporting requirements for grantees of the following primary care 
programs: Community Health Centers, Migrant Health Centers, Health Care 
for the Homeless, and Public Housing Primary Care. The authorizing 
statute is section 330 of the Public Health Service Act, as amended.
    HRSA collects data in the UDS which are used to ensure compliance 
with legislative and regulatory requirements, to improve health center 
performance and operations, and to report overall program 
accomplishments. To meet these objectives, BPHC requires a core set of 
data collected annually that is appropriate for monitoring and 
evaluating performance and reporting on annual trends. The UDS data 
collection for 2012 will be revised in three ways. A new table will be 
added to collect tenure data for certain types of health center 
clinical and administrative staff. Three clinical measures will be 
added that are consistent with identified national priorities. These 
new measures are included in the UDS data collection request in order 
to allow advance time for health centers to change data collection 
systems. Finally, a few new questions will be asked about health center 
Electronic Health Record reporting capabilities.
    These changes reflect an increase in burden of hours over the 
previous information collection request in 2010. The burden is 
increased due to additional hours for reporting the new information. 
The annual estimate of burden is as follows:
