Identify the strengths and challenges that grantees and key partners used to implement the FCHCNC grant; 2. Assess the effectiveness of the grantees’ implementation of the FCHCNC grant; 3. Determine client satisfaction and whether clients are meeting intervention goals; and 4. Assess health care utilization and cost savings associated with FCHCNC grant participation. The evaluation will collect data from key stakeholders, grantee sites, and clients using the following methods: 1. In person and telephonic interviews; 2. Grantee data collection forms; and 3. Client satisfaction surveys. ORHP is seeking approval from OMB for the three methods of data collection. A brief description of the data collection activities for which OMB approval is being sought is included below: In Person and Telephonic Key Informant Interviews: Interviews will be conducted with hospital administrators, providers, the care transitions coordinator, community health workers, and clients participating in the program. The interview guides consist of openended questions designed to gather information on successes and challenges associated with the program design and implementation. Additionally, the interviews seek to gather information about the CHW training, client enrollment, intervention design for participants, and satisfaction with the program. Grantee Data Collection: The data collected from each grantee site will provide details on program/client activity on a quarterly basis. The data will include the number of clients with whom the CHWs are involved, the intervention goals and objectives for each participant, resources used as part of the interventions, and the time it took for achievement of the goals. To provide insight on the effectiveness of the grantees’ recruitment, grantee data collection will also provide information on CHWs’ efforts to enroll clients and the successes and failures that they have with various recruitment methods. Client Satisfaction Survey: The data collected as part of the client satisfaction survey will include data on types of health services used during their intervention and overall satisfaction with the FCHCNC program. CMS Utilization and Cost Data: The data accessed for the FCHCNC program will include overall utilization of health services by clients enrolled in the program (including number of hospitalizations) and the cost of the associated care received by the clients enrolled in the program. Likely Respondents: Hospital Administrators, primary care providers, community health workers, the care transition coordinator, staff from the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services, staff from Montana Health Education and Research Foundation, and CHW clients. 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.
