OMB No.: 0906–xxxx–NEW. Abstract: In response to the growing need for resources and coordination of resources devoted to sickle cell disease and other hemoglobinopathies, the United States Congress, under Section 712 of the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004 (Pub. L. 108–357) (42 U.S.C. 300b–1 note), authorized a demonstration program for the prevention and treatment of sickle cell disease (SCD) to be administered by HRSA’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The program is known as the Sickle Cell Disease Treatment Demonstration Program (SCDTDP). The SCDTDP is designed to improve access to services for individuals with sickle cell disease, improve and expand patient and provider education, and improve and expand the continuity and coordination of service delivery for individuals with sickle cell disease and sickle cell trait. The specific aims for the program are threefold: (1) Increase the number of providers treating persons with sickle cell disease, (2) increase the number of providers using evidence-based treatments in sickle cell disease, such as prescribing hydroxyurea, and (3) increase the number of providers knowledgeable about treating sickle cell disease and the number of sickle cell patients that are seen by providers knowledgeable about sickle cell disease. PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 To achieve the goals and objectives of the program, the SCDTDP uses quality improvement (QI) methods in a collective impact model which supports cross-sector collaboration for achieving measurable effects on major social issues. The collective impact model requires shared measurement which facilitates tracking progress in a standardized method to promote learning and enhance continuous improvement. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The purpose of the proposed data collection strategy is to implement a system to monitor the progress of MCHB-funded activities in improving care and health outcomes for individuals living with sickle cell disease/trait and meeting the goals of the SCDTDP. Each regional grantee site will be asked to report on a core set of evidence-based measures related to healthcare utilization among individuals with sickle cell disease and the quality of care of the SCD population. The data collected for the SCDTDP will consist of administrative medical claims data collected from State Medicaid Programs and Medicaid Managed Care Organizations that administer Medicaid on behalf of states. The data is collected either for or by State Medicaid offices for delivery of services subject to Medicaid reimbursement. The data collection strategy will provide an effective and efficient mechanism to do the following: (1) Assess the improvements in access to care for sickle cell patients provided by activities in the SCDTDP; (2) collect, coordinate, and distribute data, best practices, and findings from regional grantee sites to drive improvement on E:\FR\FM\27JNN1.SGM 27JNN1 41556 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 123 / Monday, June 27, 2016 / Notices quality measures; (3) refine a common model protocol regarding the prevention and treatment of sickle cell disease; (4) examine/address barriers that individuals and families living with sickle cell disease face when accessing quality health care and health education; (5) evaluate the grantees’ performance in meeting the objectives of the SCDTDP; and (6) provide HRSA and Congress with information on the overall progress of the program. Likely Respondents: Four regional grantee sites funded by HRSA under the SCDTDP will be the respondents for this data collection activity and submit responses gathered from State Medicaid Offices and State Medicaid Managed Care Organizations.

Information Collection Request Title: Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) Tier 1B Design and Implementation Study Abstract: The Office of Adolescent Health (OAH) is requesting an approval by OMB on a new information collection. For the TPP Tier 1B Design and Implementation Study, we will document how each of the 50 grantees funded under this grant program are scaling-up efforts to strengthen and expand the reach of evidence-based TPP programs in their respective communities. OAH anticipates that grantees will employ diverse strategies in working within their communities to scale up their initiatives. Because this information collection will contribute to the emerging knowledge base about community-wide efforts to scale up evidence-based programs (EBPs), mobilize community support, and establish linkages to youth-friendly ADDRESSES: health services at the community level, it will be important to document the variety of grantee approaches and challenges they have encountered as a result of local conditions and strategies. To document these features and experiences, a lead staff member in each grantee organization will be interviewed by phone as well as up to two key grantee partners. Partners to be interviewed will be selected based on the prominence and variety of their roles within each initiative in order to provide multiple perspectives on implementation. To obtain more detail on implementation than can be gathered in a telephone interview, site visits with up to 15 grantees will be conducted to collect data that will illustrate in detail a variety of approaches and strategies for scaling up to the community level evidence-based approaches to teen pregnancy prevention. Likely Respondents: Respondents for telephone interviews will include 50 TPP Tier 1B grantee project directors and 100 implementation partner project directors. Site visit interview participants will include 120 grantee and partner staff members, and 40 Community Advisory Group members. Eighty Youth Leadership Council members will be recruited to participate in 10 focus groups.
