SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Information Collection Request Title: National Hospital Organ Donation Campaign’s Activity Scorecard OMB No.: 0915–xxxx—NEW Need and Proposed Use of the Information: HRSA’s Healthcare Systems Bureau, Division of Transplantation, administers the Workplace Partnership for Life program under the authority of Section 377A(a) of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, (42 U.S.C. 274f–1). The Workplace Partnership for Life program seeks to increase the number of registered organ, eye, and tissue donors and to increase awareness about organ donation. HRSA launched a challenge to hospitals nationwide to assist in this effort by conducting donor education and donor registry enrollment events in their hospitals and communities. The nation’s 58 organ procurement organizations (OPOs), who already work with hospitals on clinical aspects of transplantation, are invited to participate in HRSA’s National Hospital Organ Donation Campaign to increase the number of enrollments in state donor registries. The Campaign supports OPOs by providing communications materials, facilitating the sharing of best practices, leveraging the influence of national associations and organizations related to hospitals and organ donation, and offering the additional incentive of national-level recognition to hospitals. The National Hospital Organ Donation Campaign’s Activity Scorecard is one piece of this campaign. A campaign leadership committee comprised of representatives from OPOs, Donate Life America (DLA) affiliates, and hospitals helped conceptualize the Activity Scorecard, which is based on the committee’s experience of hospital receptivity to competition and the opportunity to be recognized among their peers. The Activity Scorecard provides hospitals, which wish to participate in the campaign, with ideas for outreach activities. Each activity on the programmable PDF is assigned a particular number of points based on the activity’s potential for generating registrations. Hospitals can complete the Activity Scorecard and submit it via email or fax to HRSA or to their OPO or DLA. This is a voluntary activity. Hospitals may participate in the campaign without using the Activity Scorecard. HRSA anticipates that most hospitals enrolled in the campaign (currently 802) will submit a completed Activity Scorecard once a year.

A list of hospitals that reach these levels will be shared with all campaign participants during monthly webinars, in monthly campaign e-newsletters from HRSA, and in communications pieces sent out by the campaign’s ten national partners, which include the American Hospital Association, the Association of Organ Procurement Organizations, and the American Society of Transplant Surgeons. In addition, OPOs, DLA affiliates, participating state hospital associations, HRSA, and the national partners can use the results to recognize hospital participation and successes. The ‘‘write-in’’ option that allows hospitals to list additional activities will help to identify best practices that can be shared with all hospital partners on monthly webinars. Likely Respondents: A hospital representative, most often the organ donation champion identified by the OPO, can download the form from organdonor.gov or receive it from their OPO or Donate Life America (DLA) affiliate. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.

Information Collection Request Title: The Stem Cell Therapeutic Outcomes Database OMB No. 0915–0310— Revision Abstract: The Stem Cell Therapeutic and Research Act of 2005, Public Law (Pub. L.) 109–129, as amended by the Stem Cell Therapeutic and Research Reauthorization Act of 2010, Public Law 111–264 (the Act), provides for the collection and maintenance of human blood stem cells for the treatment of patients and research. HRSA’s Healthcare Systems Bureau has established the Stem Cell Therapeutic Outcomes Database. Operation of this database necessitates certain record keeping and reporting requirements in order to perform the functions related to hematopoietic stem cell transplantation under contract to the U.S. Department of ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Health and Human Services (HHS). The Act requires the Secretary to contract for the establishment and maintenance of information related to patients who have received stem cell therapeutic products and to do so using a standardized, electronic format. Data is collected from transplant centers by the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research and is used for ongoing analysis of transplant outcomes. HRSA uses the information in order to carry out its statutory responsibilities. Information is needed to monitor the clinical status of transplantation and to provide the Secretary of HHS with an annual report of transplant center-specific survival data. The increase in burden is due to an increase in the annual number of transplants and increasing survivorship after transplantation. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the E:\FR\FM\30SEN1.SGM 30SEN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Information Collection Request Title: National Hospital Organ 
Donation Campaign's Activity Scorecard
    OMB No.: 0915-xxxx--NEW
    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: HRSA's Healthcare Systems 
Bureau, Division of Transplantation, administers the Workplace 
Partnership for Life program under the authority of Section 377A(a) of 
the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, (42 U.S.C. 274f-1). The Workplace 
Partnership for Life program seeks to increase the number of registered 
organ, eye, and tissue donors and to increase awareness about organ 
donation. HRSA launched a challenge to hospitals nationwide to assist 
in this effort by conducting donor education and donor registry 
enrollment events in their hospitals and communities. The nation's 58 
organ procurement organizations (OPOs), who already work with hospitals 
on clinical aspects of transplantation, are invited to participate in 
HRSA's National Hospital Organ Donation Campaign to increase the number 
of enrollments in state donor registries. The Campaign supports OPOs by 
providing communications materials, facilitating the sharing of best 
practices, leveraging the influence of national associations and 
organizations related to hospitals and organ donation, and offering the 
additional incentive of national-level recognition to hospitals.
    The National Hospital Organ Donation Campaign's Activity Scorecard 
is one piece of this campaign. A campaign leadership committee 
comprised of representatives from OPOs, Donate Life America (DLA) 
affiliates, and hospitals helped conceptualize the Activity Scorecard, 
which is based on the committee's experience of hospital receptivity to 
competition and the opportunity to be recognized among their peers. The 
Activity Scorecard provides hospitals, which wish to participate in the 
campaign, with ideas for outreach activities. Each activity on the 
programmable PDF is assigned a particular number of points based on the 
activity's potential for generating registrations.
    Hospitals can complete the Activity Scorecard and submit it via 
email or fax to HRSA or to their OPO or DLA. This is a voluntary 
activity. Hospitals may participate in the campaign without using the 
Activity Scorecard. HRSA anticipates that most hospitals enrolled in 
the campaign (currently 802) will submit a completed Activity Scorecard 
once a year.

[[Page 59942]]

    Most important, the Activity Scorecard provides incentive for 
hospitals to conduct activities that will increase the number of 
registered donors throughout the nation. A list of hospitals that reach 
these levels will be shared with all campaign participants during 
monthly webinars, in monthly campaign e-newsletters from HRSA, and in 
communications pieces sent out by the campaign's ten national partners, 
which include the American Hospital Association, the Association of 
Organ Procurement Organizations, and the American Society of Transplant 
Surgeons. In addition, OPOs, DLA affiliates, participating state 
hospital associations, HRSA, and the national partners can use the 
results to recognize hospital participation and successes. The ``write-
in'' option that allows hospitals to list additional activities will 
help to identify best practices that can be shared with all hospital 
partners on monthly webinars.
    Likely Respondents: A hospital representative, most often the organ 
donation champion identified by the OPO, can download the form from 
organdonor.gov or receive it from their OPO or Donate Life America 
(DLA) affiliate.
    Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by 
persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the 
information requested. This includes the time needed to review 
instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and 
systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying 
information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and 
providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to 
a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and 
review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise 
disclose the information. The total annual burden hours estimated for 
this ICR are summarized in the table below.
