SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: Background The US-VISIT Program The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) established the United States Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology (US-VISIT) Program in accordance with several federal statutory mandates requiring DHS to create an integrated, automated entry and exit system that records the arrival and departure of aliens, verifies the aliens’ identities, and authenticates PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 aliens’ travel documents through the comparison of biometric identifiers. Under these various federal statutory mandates, certain aliens may be required to provide biometrics (including digital fingerprint scans, photographs, facial and iris images, or other biometric identifiers 1) upon arrival in, or departure from, the United States. On March 16, 2013, US-VISIT’s entry and exit operations, including deployment of a biometric exit system, were transferred to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). See Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013, Public Law 113–6, 127 Stat. 198 (2013). The Act also transferred the US-VISIT Program’s overstay analysis function to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and its biometric identity management services to the Office of Biometric Management (OBIM), a newly-created office within the National Protection and Programs Directorate. CBP assumed responsibility for operating biometric entry and implementing biometric exit programs on April 1, 2013. Since the transfer of US-VISIT’s entry and exit operations to CBP, CBP has continued to consider ways to collect 1 As used in this notice, a ‘‘biometric identifier’’ is a physical characteristic or other physical attribute unique to an individual that can be collected, stored, and used to verify the identity of a person who presents himself or herself to a CBP officer at the border. To verify a person’s identity, a similar physical characteristic or attribute is collected and compared against the previously collected identifier. E:\FR\FM\28JYN1.SGM 28JYN1

or to obtain a copy of the information collection plans, call the 
SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer on (240) 276-1243.
    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the agency, including whether the information shall have practical 
utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality,

Proposed Project Behavioral Health Information Technologies and 
Standards--In-Depth Qualitative Data Collection Activity--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 to 
conduct qualitative data collection activities (i.e., focus group and 
site visits) to assess health information technology (HIT) adoption 
practices 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 
questions that will examine 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 expand data necessary to inform the Agency's 
strategic initiative that focuses on fostering the adoption of health 
information technologies in community behavioral health services. The 
qualitative activities will elicit success stories, challenges to 
adopting health information technologies, and lessons learned regarding 
SAMHSA grantee access to and use of health information technology and 
will provide valuable information to inform the behavioral health 
information technology literature.
    Approval of this data collection effort by the Office of Management 
and Budget (OMB) will allow SAMHSA to identify the current status of 
health information technology adoption and use among a select group of 
grantees who have demonstrated success in at least one of the 
identified health information technology categories: Certified 
electronic health records, telehealth technologies, mobile health, and 
social media-based consumer engagement tools. Data from the focus 
groups and site visits will allow SAMHSA to enhance the health 
information technology-related programmatic activities among its

grantees by providing data on how health information technologies 
facilitate the implementation of different types of SAMHSA grants; 
thereby fostering the appropriate adoption of health information 
technologies within SAMSHA-funded programs.
    Ten (10) respective focus groups and site visit sessions will 
collect qualitative data to provide a snapshot view of the current 
state of health information technology adoption. The focus groups will 
include up to six participations per session and will be representative 
of the ten Department of Health and Human Services Regions. Site visit 
participants will be selected from among SAMHSA-funded grant programs 
and non-profit community behavioral health providers nominated by 
Project Officers as exemplars in the field of health information 
technologies, with recognized success in at least one of the four 
health information technology domain categories.
    The proposed ten (10) in-person focus group sessions will not 
exceed 90-minutes in duration and will be limited to no less than six 
(6) and no more than (8) participants. The proposed ten (10) in-person 
site visit sessions will not exceed eight (8) hours in duration and 
will include, on average two (2) participants at any one time during 
the visit. The focus group and site visit sessions are expected to 
occur between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. and will allow 
sufficient time for food and personal breaks. The total estimated 
burden to participate in the focus groups is 120 hours. The total 
estimated burden to participate in the site visits is 160 hours. The 
following table summarizes the estimated participation burden:
