Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; Comment Request, 69838-69840 [2016-24265]

Download as PDF 69838 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 195 / Friday, October 7, 2016 / Notices conduct online surveys of grantee Project Directors. This is a new project request targeting the collection of primary, organizational-level data through an online survey with grantee Project Directors. The grantee programs that will be involved are focused on integrating HIV and Hepatitis primary care, substance abuse, and behavioral health services and include: (1) TI–12– 007 Targeted Capacity Expansion HIV Program: Substance Abuse Treatment for Racial/Ethnic Minority Populations at High-Risk for HIV/AIDS (TCE–HIV) grantees; (2) TI–14–013 Minority AIDS Initiative—Continuum of Care (MAICoC) grantees; (3) TI–13–011 Targeted Capacity Expansion HIV Program: Substance Abuse Treatment for Racial/ Ethnic Minority Women at High Risk for HIV/AIDS (TCE–HIV: Minority Women) grantees; and (4) TI–15–006 Targeted Capacity Expansion: Substance Use Disorder Treatment for Racial/Ethnic Minority Populations at High-Risk for HIV/AIDS (TCE–HIV: High Risk Populations) grantees. The goals of the grantee programs are to integrate behavioral health treatment, prevention, and HIV medical care services for racial/ethnic minority populations at high risk for behavioral health disorders and at high risk for or living with HIV. The grantee programs serve many different populations including African American, Hispanic/ Latina and other racial/ethnic minorities, young men who have sex with men (YMSM), men who have sex with men (MSM) and bisexual men, adult heterosexual women and men, transgender persons, and people with substance use disorder. Project Director Surveys conducted with grantees are an integral part of evaluation efforts to: (1) Assess the impact of the SAMHSAfunded HIV programs in: Reducing behavioral health disorders and HIV infections; increasing access to substance use disorder (SUD) and mental disorder treatment and care; improving behavioral and mental health outcomes; and reducing HIV-related disparities in four specific grant programs; (2) Describe the different integrated behavioral health and medical program models; and (3) Determine which program types or models are most effective in improving behavioral health and clinical outcomes. SAMHSA will request one web-based survey to be completed by each of the 152 grantee Project Directors. Project Directors may request assistance from another project administrator to help them complete the survey. The webbased survey will be conducted once for grantees in each grant program, in the grantee organization’s final year of TCE– HIV (TI–12–007, TI–13–011, TI–15–006) or MAI CoC (TI–14–013) funding, with an annual average of 50 grantees/100 respondents per year. Project Directors will provide information on their program’s integration of HIV and Hepatitis medical and primary care into behavioral health services and project implementation. While participating in the evaluation is a condition of the grantees’ funding, participating in the survey process is voluntary. The questionnaire is designed to collect information about: Grantee organizational structure, outreach and engagement, services provided through the grant-funded project, coordination of care, behavioral health/medical care integration, funding and project sustainability, staffing and staff development.

or to obtain a copy of the information collection plans, call the 
SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer at (240) 276-1243.
    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collections of

Proposed Project: SAMHSA Transformation Accountability (TRAC) Data 
Collection Instrument (OMB No. 093-0285)--Revised

    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration 
(SAMHSA), Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) is proposing to 
modify one of its current Transformation Accountability (TRAC) system 
data collection tools to include previously piloted recovery measures. 
Specifically, this revision entails the incorporation of twelve 
recovery measures into the current CMHS NOMs Adult Client-level 
Measures for Discretionary Programs Providing Direct Services data 
collection tool. As part of its strategic initiative to support 
recovery from mental health and substance use disorders, SAMHSA has 
been working to develop a standard measure of recovery that can be used 
as part of its grantee performance reporting activities.
    This revision will add eight questions from the World Health 
Organization's (WHO) Quality of Life (QOL) to SAMHSA's existing set of 
Government

[[Page 69839]]

Performance and Results Act (GPRA) measures along with four additional 
measures that support the WHO QOL-8. Data will be collected at two time 
points--at client intake and at six months post-intake. These are two 
points in time during which SAMHSA grantees routinely collect data on 
the individuals participating in their programs.
    The WHO QOL-8 will assess the following domains using the items 
listed below:

(OMB) will allow SAMHSA to further refine the Recovery Measure 
developed for this project. It will also help determine whether the 
Recovery Measure is added to SAMHSA's set of required performance 
measurement tools designed to aid in tracking recovery among clients 
receiving services from the Agency's funded programs.
