Agency Forms Undergoing Paperwork Reduction Act Review, 46828-46829 [2014-18844]

Download as PDF 46828 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 154 / Monday, August 11, 2014 / Notices calculates and publishes weekly statistics via the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR), providing the states with timely aggregates of their submissions. The following diseases/conditions are included in this program: Influenza Virus, Caliciviruses, Respiratory and Enteric Viruses, Foodborne Outbreaks, Waterborne Outbreaks, and Enteroviruses. These data are essential on the local, state, and Federal levels for measuring trends in diseases, evaluating the effectiveness of current prevention strategies, and determining the need for modifying current prevention measures. This request is for revision of the currently approved data collection for three years. The revisions include shifting information collection management responsibilities from the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID) to the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD) and consolidating various forms to reflect more current technology trends. In addition, to gauge the potential threat to human health, a new Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV) patient investigation data collection form has been added. A new Adenovirus Typing Report form is also included and will allow for a passive surveillance mechanism which will enhance the adenovirus circulation data that’s already collected by the National Respiratory and Enteric Virus Surveillance System (NREVSS). Furthermore, minor changes have been made to the forms related to Human Infection with Novel Influenza A Virus. The Harmful Algal Bloom-related Illness forms are being discontinued. The methodology for reporting varies depending on the occurrence, modes of transmission, infectious agents, and epidemiologic measures. There is no cost to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annual burden hours are 31,836. the items contained in this notice should be directed to the Attention: CDC Desk Officer, Office of Management and Budget, Washington, DC 20503 or by fax to (202) 395–5806.

Background and Brief Description Surveillance of the incidence and distribution of disease has been an important function of the U.S. Public Health Service (PHS) since 1878. Through the years, PHS/CDC has formulated practical methods of disease control through field investigations. The CDC National Disease Surveillance Program is based on the premise that diseases cannot be diagnosed, prevented, or controlled until existing knowledge is expanded and new ideas developed and implemented. Over the years, the mandate of CDC has broadened to include preventive health activities and the surveillance systems maintained have expanded. Data on disease and preventable conditions are collected in accordance with jointly approved plans by CDC and the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE). Changes in the surveillance program and in reporting methods are effected in the same manner. At the beginning of this surveillance program in 1968, CSTE and CDC decided which diseases warranted surveillance. These diseases are reviewed and revised based on variations in the public’s health. Surveillance forms are distributed to State and local health department staff, who voluntarily submit these reports to CDC on variable frequencies—weekly, monthly, or quarterly.

Background and Brief Description In 2012, CDC’s Office on Smoking and Health obtained OMB approval of a generic clearance that established a unified information collection framework for the development of tobacco-related health messages, including messages related to CDC’s ACA-funded tobacco education campaign (Message Testing for Tobacco Communication Activities (MTTCA), OMB No. 0920–0910, exp. 1/31/2015). The MTTCA clearance was initially approved with the following estimates: 14,974 annualized responses and 5,775 annualized burden hours. On January 2, 2014, CDC obtained OMB approval to increase the capacity of the MTTCA clearance to 36,847 annualized responses and 7,219 burden hours. CDC has employed the MTTCA clearance to collect information about adult smokers’ and nonsmokers’ attitudes and perceptions, and to pretest draft messages and materials for clarity, salience, appeal, and persuasiveness. A variety of information collection strategies are supported through this mechanism, including indepth interviews, in-person focus groups, online focus groups, computerassisted, in-person, or telephone interviews, and online surveys. CDC requests OMB approval for each data collection by submitting a project- E:\FR\FM\11AUN1.SGM 11AUN1

No. 0920-0004, Expires 8/31/2014)--Revision--National Center for 
Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, Centers for Disease Control and 
Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    Surveillance of the incidence and distribution of disease has been 
an important function of the U.S. Public Health Service (PHS) since 
1878. Through the years, PHS/CDC has formulated practical methods of 
disease control through field investigations. The CDC National Disease 
Surveillance Program is based on the premise that diseases cannot be 
diagnosed, prevented, or controlled until existing knowledge is 
expanded and new ideas developed and implemented. Over the years, the 
mandate of CDC has broadened to include preventive health activities 
and the surveillance systems maintained have expanded.
    Data on disease and preventable conditions are collected in 
accordance with jointly approved plans by CDC and the Council of State 
and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE). Changes in the surveillance 
program and in reporting methods are effected in the same manner. At 
the beginning of this surveillance program in 1968, CSTE and CDC 
decided which diseases warranted surveillance. These diseases are 
reviewed and revised based on variations in the public's health. 
Surveillance forms are distributed to State and local health department 
staff, who voluntarily submit these reports to CDC on variable 
frequencies--weekly, monthly, or quarterly. CDC then calculates and 
publishes weekly statistics via the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly 
Report (MMWR), providing the states with timely aggregates of their 
submissions.
    The following diseases/conditions are included in this program: 
Influenza Virus, Caliciviruses, Respiratory and Enteric Viruses, 
Foodborne Outbreaks, Waterborne Outbreaks, and Enteroviruses. These 
data are essential on the local, state, and Federal levels for 
measuring trends in diseases, evaluating the effectiveness of current 
prevention strategies, and determining the need for modifying current 
prevention measures.
    This request is for revision of the currently approved data 
collection for three years. The revisions include shifting information 
collection management responsibilities from the National Center for 
Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID) to the National 
Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD) and 
consolidating various forms to reflect more current technology trends. 
In addition, to gauge the potential threat to human health, a new 
Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV) patient 
investigation data collection form has been added. A new Adenovirus 
Typing Report form is also included and will allow for a passive 
surveillance mechanism which will enhance the adenovirus circulation

Virus Surveillance System (NREVSS). Furthermore, minor changes have
