Download as PDF asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 29570 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 92 / Thursday, May 12, 2016 / Notices year national objectives for improving the health of all Americans. Every 10 years, the Department issues a comprehensive set of national public health objectives. To assist with this task for the development of Healthy People 2020, the Department utilized a scientific advisory committee, the Secretary’s Advisory Committee on National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives for 2020. It was recommended that the same process be used to assist with development of Healthy People 2030 because the Department must create a more focused set of ten-year national disease prevention and health promotion objectives that reflect the Nation’s needs and carries stakeholder support. The title for the new committee is the Secretary’s Advisory Committee on National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives for 2030 (the Committee). Objectives and Scope of Activities. In 1979, HHS established the Healthy People initiative to develop a framework for improving the health of all people in the United States. Healthy People provides evidence-based, ten-year national objectives for improving the health of all Americans. Healthy People offers a strategic agenda to align health promotion and disease prevention activities in communities around the country. The Healthy People initiative is grounded in the principle that setting national objective and monitoring progress can motivate action. The Committee will provide independent advice based on current scientific evidence for use by the Secretary of HHS or a designated representative in the development of Healthy People 2030. The Committee will advise the Secretary on the Department’s approach for Healthy People 2030. Framed around health determinants and risk factors, this approach will generate a focused set of objective that address high-impact public health challenges. Description of Duties. The work of the Committee is solely advisory in nature. The Committee will perform the single, time-limited task of providing advice regarding creating Healthy People 2030. The Committee’s duties include providing advice about the Healthy People 2030 mission statement, vision statement, framework, and organizational structure. Membership and Designation. The Committee will consist of no more than 13 members. One or more members will be selected to serve as the Chair, Vice Chair, and/or Co-Chairs. The Committee membership may include former Assistant Secretaries for Health and VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:02 May 11, 2016 Jkt 238001 nationally known experts in areas such as biostatistics, business, epidemiology, health communications, health economics, health information technology, health policy, health sciences, health systems, international health, outcomes research, public health law, social determinants of health, special populations, and state and local health public health and from a variety of public, private, philanthropic, and academic settings. Members will be appointed to the Committee by the Secretary of HHS or a designated representative and invited to serve for the duration of the Committee. All appointed members of the Committee will be classified as special government employees (SGEs). Administrative Management and Support. The Committee will provide advice to the Secretary of HHS, through the Assistant Secretary for Health (ASH). The ASH will provide oversight for the Committee’s function and activities. Management and support services for the Committee will be provided by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). ODPHP is a program office within the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health, which is a staff division in the HHS Office of the Secretary. To comply with the provisions of FACA, the charters for the 2018 Physical Activity Guidelines Advisory Committee and the Secretary’s Advisory Committee on National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives for 2030 will be filed with the appropriate Congressional committees and the Library of Congress fifteen calendar days after notice of this action being taken has been published in the Federal Register. After the charters have been filed, copies of these documents can be obtained from the ODPHP Web site under the appropriate program headings. Copies of the charters for the two designated committees also can be obtained by accessing the FACA database that is maintained by the Committee Management Secretariat under the General Services Administration. The Web site address for the FACA database is https://facadatabase.gov/. Dated: May 3, 2016. Karen B. DeSalvo, Acting Assistant Secretary for Health.

Project: Primary and Behavioral Health Care Integration Evaluation—NEW The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality (CBHSQ) is requesting approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for new data collection activities associated with their Primary and Behavioral Health Care Integration (PBHCI) program. This information collection is needed to provide SAMHSA with objective information to document the reach and impact of the PBHCI program. The information will be used to monitor quality assurance and quality performance outcomes for organizations funded by this grant program. The information will also be used to assess the impact of services on behavioral health and physical health services for individuals served by this program. . Collection of the information included in this request is authorized by Section 505 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 290aa–4)—Data Collection. SAMHSA launched the PBHCI program in FY 2009 with the understanding that adults with serious mental illness (SMI) experience heightened rates of morbidity and mortality, in large part due to elevated incidence and prevalence of risk factors such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia. These risk factors are influenced by a variety of factors, including inadequate physical activity and poor nutrition; smoking; side effects from atypical antipsychotic medications; and lack of access to health care services. Many of these health conditions are preventable through routine health promotion activities, primary care screening, monitoring, treatment and care management/coordination strategies and/or other outreach programs.

Project: Primary and Behavioral Health Care Integration Evaluation--NEW

    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's 
(SAMHSA) Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality (CBHSQ) is 
requesting approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for 
new data collection activities associated with their Primary and 
Behavioral Health Care Integration (PBHCI) program.
    This information collection is needed to provide SAMHSA with 
objective information to document the reach and impact of the PBHCI

    The purpose of the PBHCI grant program is to establish projects for 
the provision of coordinated and integrated services through the co-
location of primary and specialty care medical services in community-
based behavioral health settings. The program's goal is to improve the 
physical health status of adults with serious mental illnesses (and 
those with co-occurring substance use disorders) who have or are at 
risk for co-occurring primary care conditions and chronic diseases.

    The Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality is

part of the evaluation:

1. PBHCI grantee director survey
