This project seeks to acquire baseline data necessary to inform the Agency’s strategic initiative that focuses on fostering the adoption of HIT in community behavioral health services. The survey of SAMHSA grantees regarding their access to and use of health information technology will provide valuable information that will inform the behavioral HIT literature. Approval of this data collection by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) will allow SAMHSA to identify the current status of HIT adoption and use among a diverse group of grantees. Data from the survey will allow SAMHSA to enhance the HIT-related programmatic activities among its grantees by providing data on how HIT facilitates the implementation of different types of SAMHSA grants, thereby fostering the appropriate adoption of HIT within SAMSHAfunded programs. The survey will collect data once, providing a snapshot view of the current state of HIT adoption.

Awardees from nine different SAMHSA programs drawn from CMHS, CSAT, and CSAP comprise the pool of survey participants. The survey mode for data collection will be web-based with embedded skip logic for respondents to avoid questions that are not applicable to them.

Proposed Project Behavioral Health Information Technologies Survey--NEW

    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration 
(SAMHSA) Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) and Center for 
Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality (CBHSQ) are proposing a survey 
to assess health information technology (HIT) adoption among SAMHSA 
grantees. As part of its Strategic Initiative to advance the use of 
health information technologies to support integrated behavioral health 
care, SAMHSA has been working to develop a survey instrument that will 
examine the status of and plans for HIT adoption by behavioral health 
service providers who are implementing SAMHSA grant programs. The 
selected programs are funded by the by the Center for Mental Health 
Services (CMHS), the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP), and 
(CSAT).
    This project seeks to acquire baseline data necessary to inform the 
Agency's strategic initiative that focuses on fostering the adoption of 
HIT in community behavioral health services. The survey of SAMHSA 
grantees regarding their access to and use of health information 
technology will provide valuable information that will inform the 
behavioral HIT literature.
    Approval of this data collection by the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) will allow SAMHSA to identify the current status of HIT 
adoption and use among a diverse group of grantees. Data from the 
survey will allow SAMHSA to enhance the HIT-related programmatic 
activities among its grantees by providing data on how HIT facilitates 
the implementation of different types of SAMHSA grants, thereby 
fostering the appropriate adoption of HIT within SAMSHA-funded 
programs.
    The survey will collect data once, providing a snapshot view of the 
current state of HIT adoption. The proposed participant pool is 
comprised of SAMHSA grantee program leadership who are willing to 
provide the assistance needed to ensure a high rate of response. 
Awardees from nine different SAMHSA programs drawn from CMHS, CSAT, and 
CSAP comprise the pool of survey participants.
    The survey mode for data collection will be web-based with embedded 
skip logic for respondents to avoid questions that are not applicable
