Proposed Project Asthma Information Reporting System (AIRS)—Revision—National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description In 1999, the CDC began its National Asthma Control Program (NACP), a public health approach to address the burden of asthma. The program supports the goals and objectives of ‘‘Healthy People 2020’’ for asthma and is based on the public health principles of surveillance, partnerships, interventions, and evaluation. The CDC requests to revise the ‘‘Asthma Information Reporting System (AIRS)’’ (OMB Control No. 0920–0853; expiration date 5/31/2016). Specifically, CDC seeks to make the following changes: • Rather than using the web-based system, state awardees will use AIRS Excel spreadsheets to report CDCdeveloped process and outcome performance measures. • The performance measures will be collected annually, rather than biannually, as previously approved. The goal of this data collection is to provide NCEH with routine information about the activities and performance of the state and territorial awardees funded under the NACP through an annual reporting system. NACP requires awardees to report activities related to partnerships, infrastructure, evaluation and interventions to monitor the state programs’ performance in reducing the burden of asthma. AIRS also includes two forms to collect aggregate ED and HD data from awardees. AIRS was first approved by OMB in 2010 to collect data in a web-based system to monitor and guide participating state health departments. Since implementation in 2010, AIRS and the technical assistance provided by CDC staff have provided states with uniform data reporting methods and linkages to other states’ asthma program information and resources. Thus, AIRS has saved state resources and staff time E:\FR\FM\28MRN1.SGM 28MRN1
