VITEL provides supplemental funding to existing SAMHSA Targeted Capacity Expansion: Substance Abuse Treatment for Racial/ Ethnic Minority Women at High Risk for HIV/AIDS (TCE–HIV: Minority Women) grantees. The goals of the VITEL program are (1) reduce IPV through screening and referrals, (2) reduce risky behaviors that lead to new HIV infections and SUDs, (3) increase access to care and improve health outcomes for people living with HIV and AIDS, (4) reduce HIV-related health disparities resultant from IPV screening tool implementation, and (5) determine the feasibility of integrating IPV screening in behavioral health settings. A multistage approach has been used to develop the appropriate theoretical framework, conceptual model, evaluation design and protocols, and data collection instrumentation. Process and outcome measures have been developed to fully capture community and contextual conditions, the scope of the VITEL program implementation and activities, and client outcomes. A mixed-method approach (e.g., surveys, semi-structured interviews, focus groups) will be used, for example, to examine collaborative community linkages established between grantees and other service providers (e.g., primary health care, SUD recovery), determine which program models and what type and amount of client exposure to services contribute to significant changes in IPV, SUD, and HIV risk behaviors of the targeted populations, and determine the impact of VITEL services on providers, clients, and communities. The data collection for this program will be conducted quarterly (during this one year supplemental period) and the client outcome data collection will be ongoing throughout the program and will be collected at baseline, discharge and 6-months post baseline for all treatment clients.

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. 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.

Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; 
Comment Request

    In compliance with Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995 concerning opportunity for public comment on proposed 
collections of information, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health 
Services Administration (SAMHSA) will publish periodic summaries of 
proposed projects. To request more information on the proposed projects 
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 collections of 
information are 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, 
utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways 
to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, 
including through the use of automated collection techniques or other 
forms of information technology.

Proposed Project: Violence Intervention to Enrich Lives (VITEL) 
Supplement--NEW

    This data collection is to study the intersection of intimate 
partner violence (IPV) and trauma for women with HIV, at risk for HIV, 
and at risk for substance use disorders (SUDs). VITEL provides 
supplemental funding to existing SAMHSA Targeted Capacity Expansion: 
Substance Abuse Treatment for Racial/Ethnic Minority Women at High Risk 
for HIV/AIDS (TCE-HIV: Minority Women) grantees. The goals of the VITEL 
program are (1) reduce IPV through screening and referrals, (2) reduce 
risky behaviors that lead to new HIV infections and SUDs, (3) increase 
access to care and improve health outcomes for people living with HIV 
and AIDS, (4) reduce HIV-related health disparities resultant from IPV 
screening tool implementation, and (5) determine the feasibility of 
integrating IPV screening in behavioral health settings. A multi-stage 
approach has been used to develop the appropriate theoretical 
framework, conceptual model, evaluation design and protocols, and data 
collection instrumentation. Process and outcome measures have been 
developed to fully capture community and contextual conditions, the 
scope of the VITEL program implementation and activities, and client 
outcomes. A mixed-method approach (e.g., surveys, semi-structured 
interviews, focus groups) will be used, for example, to examine 
collaborative community linkages established between grantees and other 
service providers (e.g., primary health care, SUD recovery), determine 
which program models and what type and amount of client exposure to 
services contribute to significant changes in IPV, SUD, and HIV risk 
behaviors of the targeted populations, and determine the impact of 
VITEL services on providers, clients, and communities.
    The data collection for this program will be conducted quarterly 
(during this one year supplemental period) and the client outcome data 
collection will be ongoing throughout the program and will be collected 
at baseline, discharge and 6-months post baseline for all treatment 
clients. The respondents are clinic-based social workers and 
counselors, clinic-based administrators and clinic-based clients. The 
estimated annualized burden is summarized below:
