Information Collection Request Title: Million Hearts Social Network 
Analysis: Network Survey--

    Abstract: The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and 
Evaluation (ASPE) is requesting approval on a new information 
collection request from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for 
purposes of conducting a study about the Million Hearts Initiative and 
its subsequent public-private partner network.
    Million Hearts focuses on aligning the efforts of federal agencies, 
states, regions, health systems, communities and individuals towards 
this common goal, ensuring the coordination of public health, clinical 
care, and policy approaches to this complex problem. Previous research 
has shown that collaborative efforts among organizations with a variety 
of programming, resources and skill sets result in higher levels of 
community impact. Integrated efforts to address public health issues by 
involving multiple stakeholders are predicted to result in better 
health outcomes than programs that do not use a collaborative approach.
    ASPE is requesting comment on the burden for this study that is 
examining the Million Hearts public-private partnership network. The 
goal of developing this activity is to examine the network to identify 
facilitators and barriers to effective communication and collaboration 
in addressing large and complex public health problems like 
cardiovascular disease. This project wants to take the lessons learned 
from this unique and massive collaboration and apply them to other 
efforts to improve the health and well-being of Americans.

    OS specifically requests comments on (1) the necessity and utility 
of the proposed information collection for the proper performance of 
the agency's functions, (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden, (3) 
ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected, and (4) the use of automated collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology to minimize the information 
collection burden.
