Download as PDF 43442 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 140 / Wednesday, July 22, 2015 / Notices Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The proposed study will provide HRSA HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) and policymakers with a better understanding of how the RWHAP currently provides primary and preventative care to PLWH. The first online survey will be targeted to clinic directors from a sample of about 160 Ryan White-funded clinics and will collect data on care models used; primary care services, including preventive services; and coordination of care. Data collected from this survey will provide a general overview of the various HIV care models used as well as insight to possible facilitators and barriers to providing primary and preventative care services. More indepth data collection will be conducted with a smaller number of 30 clinics representing clinic type (publicly funded community health organization, other community-based organization, health department, and hospital or university-based) and size. There will be three data collection instruments used: (1) An online survey completed by three clinicians at each of the clinics and changes to the Ryan White Program in this new era when the well-being of PLWH demands a more complex and long-term HIV care model. Likely Respondents: Clinics funded by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program. 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. The total annual burden hours estimated for this Information Collection Request are summarized in the table below. Total Estimated Annualized burden hours: (clinician survey); (2) a data extraction of select primary and preventative care services; and (3) a telephone interview with the medical director. The clinician survey will provide a more in-depth look at the clinic protocols and strategies and how they are being used and implemented by the clinicians. The data extraction will provide quantitative information on the provision of select primary and preventative care services within a certain time period. With these data, the study team can assess the accuracy of information provided in the online surveys on the provision of care as well as the frequency at which primary and preventative care screenings are provided. Lastly, the interviews with the medical director will allow the study team to follow-up on the results of the clinician survey and data extraction and collect qualitative data and more in-depth details on the provision of primary and preventative care services from a clinic wide perspective, specifically any facilitators and barriers. These data will provide HAB the background to make informed policies Number of respondents Form name Number of responses Total responses Average burden per response Total burden hours Clinic Director .......................................................................
