ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: NIST is soliciting interest in supplying electronic health record (EHR) systems for use by NIST in research to develop a framework for assessing the usability of health information technology (HIT) systems, EHRs in particular, and performanceoriented user interface design guidelines for EHRs. Manufacturers interested in participating in this research will be asked to execute a Letter of Understanding. Interested parties are invited to contact NIST for information regarding participation, Letters of Understanding and shipping information. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: Manufacturers who wish to participate in the program must submit a request and an executed Letter of DATES: VerDate Mar<15>2010 21:57 Feb 13, 2012 Jkt 226001 Understanding by 5 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on March 15, 2012. ADDRESSES: Letters of Understanding may be obtained from and should be submitted to Svetlana Lowry, National Institute of Standards and Technology, Information Access Division, Building 225, Room A232, 100 Bureau Drive, Mail Stop 8940, Gaithersburg, MD 20899–8940. Letters of Understanding may be faxed to: Svetlana Lowry at (301) 975–5287. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For further information, you may telephone Svetlana Lowry at (301) 975–4995, or email: svetlana.lowry@nist.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will be conducting research to support the development of procedures for measuring and evaluating the usability of health information technology (HIT) systems. NIST research is designed to: (1) Develop a set of guidelines/standards for the usability of HIT/EHRs, and (2) develop a framework for assessing EHR usability in development of a report titled ‘‘NIST Usability Guidelines and Evaluation Framework for EHR Systems.’’ NIST may also examine relevant instructions, documentation and EHR error messages. NIST is soliciting interest in supplying existing EHR systems for use by NIST in research to develop performance-oriented user interface design guidelines for EHRs, and a framework for assessing the usability of EHRs. Interested manufacturers should contact NIST at the address given above. NIST will supply a Letter of Understanding, which the manufacturer must execute and send back to NIST. The Letters of Understanding will be entered into pursuant to the authorities granted NIST under 15 U.S.C. 3710a. NIST will then provide the manufacturer with instructions for shipping the EHR system. NIST anticipates that it will take approximately one year to conduct all necessary research. No modification to the manufacturers’ product is permitted during the research process. NIST may transport equipment to locations off site from NIST’s main campus as required for the purpose of conducting usability studies. NIST will ensure that all off site usability testing locations have the same or higher level of security and system protection procedures as the on-site NIST labs located in the Usability Laboratory in Gaithersburg, MD. At the conclusion of the experiments, NIST will remove the EHR systems from all computers on which they were installed and return them to the manufacturers. PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 8217 Information acquired during the tests regarding potential usability problems will be reported to the respective manufacturer. Usability testing results for identifiable vendor systems will not be released subject to the terms and conditions in the Letters of Understanding. Comparative information (e.g., testing results from unidentified EHR systems A, B, and C) may be released in a blind manner in a report from NIST titled ‘‘NIST Usability Guidelines and Evaluation Framework for EHR Systems.’’ Participating manufacturers should include or provide a technical tutorial on the use of the EHR system. NIST will pay all shipping costs associated with sending the EHR system installation and training materials except those not permitted by law (such as shipping insurance, which, if desired, must be purchased by the manufacturer). NIST must pay shipping costs directly and cannot reimburse manufacturers for shipping costs. Unless the manufacturer desires to pay such shipping insurance costs, there is no other cost to the manufacturer for the testing. EHR systems that will be accepted for the experiments may include inpatient and outpatient EHRs. NIST will not accept actual personal health information as part of this project.

ACTION: Notice of public meeting. AGENCY: On October 31, 2011, NMFS published a notice inviting qualified commercial shark permit holders to submit an application to participate in the 2012 shark research fishery. The shark research fishery allows for the collection of fishery-dependent data for future stock assessments while also allowing NMFS and commercial fishermen to conduct cooperative research to meet the shark research objectives of the Agency. Every year, the permit terms and permitted activities (e.g., number of hooks and trip, retention limits) specifically authorized for selected participants in the shark research fishery are designated depending on the scientific and research needs of the Agency as well as the number of NMFS-approved observers available. In order to inform selected participants of this year’s specific permit requirements and ensure all terms and conditions of the permit are met, NMFS is holding a mandatory permit holder meeting for selected participants. In this notice, NMFS announces the date and time of that meeting. SUMMARY: A conference call will be held on February 17, 2012. ADDRESSES: A conference call will be conducted.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Karyl Brewster-Geisz or Delisse Ortiz at (301) 427–8503, or online at http:// www.nmfs.noaa.gov/sfa/hms/. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Atlantic shark fisheries are managed under the authority of the MagnusonStevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act). The 2006 Consolidated Highly Migratory species (HMS) Fishery Management Plan (FMP) is implemented by regulations at 50 CFR part 635. The final rule for Amendment 2 to the Consolidated HMS FMP (73 FR 35778, June 24, 2008, corrected at 73 FR 40658, July 15, 2008) established, among other things, a shark research fishery to maintain time series data for stock assessments and to meet NMFS’ research objectives. The shark research fishery gathers important scientific data and NMFS allows selected commercial fishermen the opportunity to earn more revenue from selling the sharks caught, including sandbar sharks. Only the commercial shark fishermen selected to participate in the shark research fishery are authorized to land/harvest sandbar sharks subject to the sandbar quota available each year. The sandbar shark base quota is 87.9 mt dw per year through December 31, 2012, although this number may be reduced in the event of overharvests, if any. The selected shark research fishery participants also have access to the nonsandbar large coastal sharks (LCS), small coastal sharks (SCS), and pelagic shark quotas subject to retention limits and quotas per §§ 635.24 and 635.27, respectively. On October 31, 2011 (76 FR 67149), NMFS published a notice inviting qualified commercial shark permit holders to submit an application to participate in the 2012 shark research fishery. NMFS received 19 applications, of which 16 applicants were determined to meet all the qualifications. From the 16 qualified applicants, NMFS randomly selected 5 participants after considering how to meet research objectives in particular regions. During the annual application period, commercial shark permit holders (directed and incidental) are invited to submit an application to participate in the shark research fishery. NMFS expects to invite qualified commercial shark permit holders to submit an application for the 2013 shark research fishery later this year. Every year, the permit terms and permitted activities (e.g., number of INFORMATION E:\FR\FM\14FEN1.SGM 14FEN1
