Type of Review: New data collection. Abstract: In May of 2012, the GAO published a Report to Congressional Requesters titled ‘‘VA DIALYSIS PILOT: Increased Attention to Planning, Implementation, and Performance Measurement Needed to Help Achieve Goals’’ (GAO–12–584, May 23, 2012). The GAO report stated four goals of the Dialysis Pilot, and the second goal, increased access for veterans, is related to this Information Collection (IC). A principal goal of the Dialysis Pilot program for the treatment of End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) is to improve access to dialysis care for Veterans. This Access to Care IC will include a consideration of the access to care dimensions (e.g., travel distance), patient demographic, and socioeconomic characteristics associated with Veterans’ use of the pilot VAoperated free-standing outpatient dialysis clinics. This IC will provide an independent assessment and analysis of barriers and facilitators that Veterans may experience while accessing the pilot freestanding outpatient dialysis clinics. At the end of this assessment, a report will be developed that outlines the main findings from this IC and recommendations made that will inform future employment of free-standing outpatient dialysis clinics. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on this collection of information was published on (Tuesday, August 20, 2013), Vol. 78, No. 161, on page 1.
