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.

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 SAMHSAfunded 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 90minutes 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.

Project: National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (N–SSATS) (OMB No. 0930–0106)—Revision The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is requesting a revision of the National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment (N–SSATS) data collection VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:41 Oct 07, 2015 Jkt 238001 (OMB No. 0930–0106), which expires on January 31, 2016. N–SSATS provides both national and state-level data on the numbers and types of patients treated and the characteristics of facilities providing substance abuse treatment services. It is conducted under the authority of Section 505 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 290aa–4) to meet the specific mandates for annual information about public and private substance abuse treatment providers and the clients they serve. This request includes: • Collection of N–SSATS, which is an annual survey of substance abuse treatment facilities; and • Updating of the Inventory of Behavioral Health Services (I–BHS) which is the facility universe for the N– SSATS as well as the annual survey of mental health treatment facilities, the National Mental Health Services Survey (N–MHSS). The I–BHS includes all substance abuse treatment and mental health treatment facilities known to SAMHSA. (The N–MHSS data collection is covered under OMB No. 0930–0119.) The information in I–BHS and N– SSATS is needed to assess the nature and extent of these resources, to identify gaps in services, and to provide a database for treatment referrals. Both I– BHS and N–SSATS are components of the Behavioral Health Services Information System (BHSIS). The request for OMB approval will include a request to update the I–BHS facility listing on a continuous basis and to conduct the N–SSATS and the between cycle N–SSATS (N–SSATS BC) in 2016, 2017, and 2018. The N–SSATS BC is a procedure for collecting services data from newly identified facilities between main cycles of the survey and will be used to improve the listing of treatment facilities in the online Behavioral Health Treatment Services Locator. Planned Changes I–BHS: No changes. N–SSATS: The N–SSATS with client counts will continue to be conducted in alternate years, as in the past with an alternate version of the N–SSATS PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 questionnaire that includes workforce questions as well as questions to update the Treatment Locator conducted in the interim years. Version B (2016 and 2018) The workforce questions will be conducted in even years in place of the ‘‘locator’’ version of N–SSATS that was completed in even years previously. The following questions have been deleted: Questions on religious affiliation, standard operating procedures, how (paper/electronic/both) a facility performs selected activities, questions about reporting client counts, including how the facility will complete client counts; number of facilities in client counts; names and addresses of additional facilities reported for; number of hospital inpatient client counts by category, by number under age 18, number receiving methadone, buprenorphine, or Vivitrol®, and number of dedicated beds; number of residential client counts by category, by number under age 18, and number receiving methadone, buprenorphine, or Vivitrol®, and number of dedicated beds; number of outpatient client counts by category, by number under age 18, and number receiving methadone, buprenorphine, or Vivitrol®, and capacity indicator; type of substance abuse problem, percent of co-occurring clients; and 12-month admissions, and the National Provider Identifier (NPI). The following questions have been added: A new question has been added to ascertain the numbers of types of workforce staff and the average number of hours worked per week for each type of staff. Three questions, one for each of the major types of treatment (hospital inpatient, residential, and outpatient) have been added asking for an overall number of active clients on the survey reference date; the purpose is to provide an indication of size of facility for analysis of the added workforce questions.

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

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

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
