Information Collection Request Title: Telehealth Resource Center Performance Measurement Tool, OMB No. 0915– 0361—Revision Abstract: To ensure the best use of public funds and to meet the Government Performance Review Act (GPRA) requirements, the Federal Office of Rural Health’s Office for the Advancement of Telehealth (OAT), in SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 collaboration with the Telehealth Resource Centers (TRCs), created a set of performance measures that grantees can use to evaluate the technical assistance services provided by the TRCs. Grantee goals are to customize the provision of telehealth technical assistance across the country. The TRCs provide technical assistance to health care organizations, health care networks, and health care providers in the implementation of costeffective telehealth programs to serve rural and medically underserved areas and populations. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: In order to evaluate existing programs, data are obtained from the Performance Improvement Measurement system (PIMs). The data are used to measure the effectiveness of the technical assistance. The tool is also used to address GPRA initiatives. There are two data reporting periods each year; during these biannual reporting, data are reported for the previous 6 months of activity. Programs have approximately 6 weeks to enter their data into the PIMs system during each biannual reporting period. The instrument was developed with the following four goals in mind: I. improving access to needed services; II. reducing rural practitioner isolation; III. improving health system productivity and efficiency; and IV. improving patient outcomes. The TRCs currently report on existing performance data elements using PIMs. The current PIMs will continue to be used to report on new measures. The performance measures are designed to assess how the TRC program is meeting its goals to: 1. Expand the availability of telehealth services in underserved communities; 2. Improve the quality, efficiency, and effectiveness of telehealth services; 3. Promote knowledge exchange and dissemination about efficient and effective telehealth practices and technology; and 4. Establish sustainable technical assistance (TA) centers providing quality, unbiased TA for the development and expansion of effective and efficient telehealth services in underserved communities. Additionally, the PIMs tool allows OAT to: • Fulfill obligations for GPRA and Program Assessment Rating Tool requirements and to report to Congress the value added from the TRC Grant Program; • Justify budget requests; • Collect uniform, consistent data which enables OAT to monitor programs; • Provide guidance to grantees on important indicators to track over time E:\FR\FM\12JAN1.SGM 12JAN1
