Notice of Meetings, 56991-56992 [2015-23575]

Download as PDF 56991 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 182 / Monday, September 21, 2015 / Notices information. Available study registries and databases may not be complete to sufficiently inform the Program’s research. The purpose of SEADS requests is not to collect generalizable data, but to supplement the published and grey literature searches EPC investigators are conducting. Furthermore, considering the evidence and data included in responses collected from industry stakeholders, an assessment pertaining to the completeness of the evidencebase will be produced. This, AHRQ believes, will increase the value of AHRQ’s research reviews to end users and potentially provide stakeholders a better understanding of how their submissions are used. Estimated Annual Respondent Burden Exhibit 1 presents estimates of the reporting burden hours for the data collection efforts. Time estimates are based on pilot testing of materials and what can reasonably be requested of respondents. The number of respondents listed in ‘‘Number of respondents per SEADS request’’ of Exhibit 1 reflects a projected 80% response rate. Online Submission Form: A form for submitting scientific evidence and data related to medical interventions sponsored by organizations and individuals such as pharmaceutical companies and independent researchers. The form has three required fields: The organization’s name, the intervention in question, and whether the information they provide is all the information they know to exist. They may upload documents and they are also provided a data entry form if they wish to offer greater details on their studies. An Optional Data Entry Form is available as an alternative to the Online Submission form. The time requirements for response would be same as the Online Submission Form.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:14 Sep 18, 2015 Jkt 235001 This notice announces the intention of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) to request that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approve the proposed information collection project: ‘‘Developing a Registry of Registries.’’ In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3521, AHRQ invites the public to comment on this proposed information collection. DATES: Comments on this notice must be received by November 20, 2015. ADDRESSES: Written comments should be submitted to: Doris Lefkowitz, Reports Clearance Officer, AHRQ, by email at doris.lefkowitz@AHRQ.hhs.gov. Copies of the proposed collection plans, data collection instruments, and specific details on the estimated burden can be obtained from the AHRQ Reports Clearance Officer. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Doris Lefkowitz, AHRQ Reports Clearance Officer, (301) 427–1477, or by email at doris.lefkowitz@AHRQ.hhs.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Proposed Renewal of an Existing Project: ‘‘Developing a Registry of Registries.’’ OMB Control Number 0935–0203 Patient registries have received significant attention and funding in recent years. Similar to controlled studies, patient registries represent some burden to patients (e.g., time to complete patient reported outcome measures, risk of loss of privacy), who often participate voluntarily in hopes of improving the public’s and medical community’s knowledge about a disease or condition. Patient registries also represent a substantial investment of health research resources. Despite these factors, patient registries are not required to be registered in ClinicalTrials.gov, presenting the potential for duplication of efforts and insufficient dissemination of findings that are not published in the peerreviewed literature. To fulfill the obligation of advancing the quality and specificity of patient healthcare, and to ensure that resources are used in the most efficient manner, patient registries need to be listed in a manner similar to that of trials in ClinicalTrials.gov. By creating a central point of collection for information about all patient registries in the United States, the Registry of Patient Registries (RoPR) furthers AHRQ’s goals by making information regarding quality, appropriateness, and effectiveness of health services (and patient registries in particular) more readily available, in a central location. PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 This research has the following goals: (1) Maintaining and updating the RoPR database system to be compatible with ClinicalTrials.gov; meeting the following objectives: a. Providing a searchable database of patient registries in the United States (to promote collaboration, reduce redundancy, and improve transparency); b. Facilitating the use of common data fields and definitions in similar health conditions (to improve opportunities for sharing, comparing, and linkage) and free-text search field for highlighting information specific to an individual registry; c. Providing a public repository of searchable summary results (including results from registries that have not yet been published in the peer-reviewed literature); d. Offering a search tool to locate existing data that researchers can request for use in new studies; and e. Serving as a recruitment tool for researchers and patients interested in participating in patient registries. The RoPR is a web-based application, and does not require users to submit any type of paper form. The RoPR collects patient registry data in two ways: users are able to enter information into the web-based system manually, or use an automated upload feature. Information being collected in the RoPR Record is visible to the public and patient registries visiting the RoPR Web site, and is available for public use in this capacity. The RoPR system provides email notification to registry holders informing them on an annual basis of the need to update basic statistics and contact information. It is the responsibility of the registry holder to update the information. If a Registry Profile has not been reviewed and updated to the RoPR search site within four (4) years, it is archived. As of August 8, 2015, the RoPR has 138 patient registries listed. This study is being conducted by AHRQ through its contractor L&M Policy Research and sub-contractor to L&M, Quintiles, pursuant to AHRQ’s statutory authority to conduct and support research and disseminate information on health care and on systems for the delivery of such care, including activities with respect to the quality, effectiveness, efficiency, appropriateness and value of health care services and with respect to database development. 42 U.S.C. 299a(a)(1) and (8).
