Background and Brief Description Section 306 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act (42 U.S.C. 242k), as amended, authorizes that the Secretary of Health and Human Services (DHHS), acting through NCHS, shall collect statistics on ‘‘utilization of health care’’ in the United States. The National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NHAMCS) has been conducted annually since 1992. NCHS is seeking OMB approval to extend this survey for an additional three years and make minor modifications to survey questionnaires. The purpose of NHAMCS is to meet the needs and demands for statistical information about the provision of ambulatory medical care services in the United States. Ambulatory services are rendered in a wide variety of settings, including physicians’ offices and hospital outpatient and emergency departments. The target universe of the NHAMCS is in-person visits made to outpatient departments (OPDs), emergency departments (EDs), and ambulatory surgery locations (ASLs) of non-Federal, short-stay hospitals (hospitals with an average length of stay of less than 30 days) or those whose specialty is general (medical or surgical) or children’s general. NHAMCS was initiated to complement the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS, OMB No. 0920–0234), which provides similar data concerning patient visits to physicians’ offices.

OMB No.: 0970–0440. Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is proposing a data collection activity as part of the Job Search Assistance (JSA) Strategies Evaluation. The JSA evaluation will aim to determine which JSA strategies are most effective in moving TANF applicants and recipients into work. The impact study will randomly assign individuals to contrasting JSA approaches and then compare their employment and earnings to determine their relative effectiveness. The implementation study will describe services participants receive under each approach as well as provide operational lessons gathered directly from practitioners. The proposed information collection activity consists of: (1) Baseline data collection: Collection of baseline data from TANF recipients at the time of enrollment in the study; (2) Implementation study site visits: Conducting site visits for the purpose of documenting the program context, program organization and staffing, the components JSA services, and other relevant aspects of the TANF program. During the visits, site teams will interview key administrators and line staff using a semi-structured interview guide; and (3) a JSA staff survey. This on-line survey, administered to TANF supervisory and line staff involved in JSA activities, will be used as part of the implementation study to systematically document program operations and the type of JSA services provided across the study sites. Respondents: JSA program staff and individuals enrolled in the JSA study.

Proposed Project

    National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NHAMCS) (OMB 
Control No. 0920-0278, expires 12/31/2014)--Revision--National Center 
for Health Statistics (NCHS), Centers for Disease Control and 
Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    Section 306 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act (42 U.S.C. 
242k), as amended, authorizes that the Secretary of Health and Human 
Services (DHHS), acting through NCHS, shall collect statistics on 
``utilization of health care'' in the United States. The National 
Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NHAMCS) has been conducted 
annually since 1992. NCHS is seeking OMB approval to extend this survey 
for an additional three years and make minor modifications to survey 
questionnaires.
    The purpose of NHAMCS is to meet the needs and demands for 
statistical information about the provision of ambulatory medical care 
services in the United States. Ambulatory services are rendered in a 
wide variety of settings, including physicians' offices and hospital 
outpatient and emergency departments. The target universe of the NHAMCS 
is in-person visits made to outpatient departments (OPDs), emergency 
departments (EDs), and ambulatory surgery locations (ASLs) of non-
Federal, short-stay hospitals (hospitals with an average length of stay 
of less than 30 days) or those whose specialty is general (medical or 
surgical) or children's general.
    NHAMCS was initiated to complement the National Ambulatory Medical 
Care Survey (NAMCS, OMB No. 0920-0234), which provides similar data 
concerning patient visits to physicians' offices. NAMCS and NHAMCS are 
the principal sources of

data on ambulatory care provided in the United States.
    NHAMCS provides a range of baseline data on the characteristics of 
the users and providers of hospital ambulatory medical care. Data 
collected include patients' demographic characteristics, reason(s) for 
visit, providers' diagnoses, diagnostic services, medications, and 
disposition. These data, together with trend data, may be used to 
monitor the effects of change in the health care system, for the 
planning of health services, improving medical education, determining 
health care work force needs, and assessing the health status of the 
population.
    Users of NHAMCS data include, but are not limited to, congressional 
offices, Federal agencies, state and local governments, schools of 
public health, colleges and universities, private industry, nonprofit 
foundations, professional associations, clinicians, researchers, 
administrators, and health planners. There are no costs to the 
respondents other than their time.
