Agency Information Collection Activity: (VA Request for Determination of Reasonable Value (26-1805 & 26-1805-1)), 8564-8565 [2017-01745]

Download as PDF jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 8564 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 16 / Thursday, January 26, 2017 / Notices is to conduct a survey of Veterans to capture novel predictors of hospital admission and identify clusters of complex patients based on survey- and claims-based covariates. This study provides the first empirical application of the Cycle of Complexity conceptual model that the study team developed and recently published, which postulates that patient complexity represents more than having multiple chronic conditions. It is critical to evaluate whether complexity defined on the basis of survey-based and claimsbased covariates is more predictive than diagnosis of multiple chronic conditions based on claims data alone. The proposed patient survey is designed to measure a broad range of self-reported patient factors that increase Veterans’ risk for being admitted to hospital, including life stressors, perceived locus of control, grit, resilience, functional status, social support and loneliness, sleep problems, symptoms, food insecurity, and patient activation. This survey will help us understand, for the first time, the extent to which self-reported factors can markedly improve prediction of patient risk for hospital admission, which may help the PACT Demonstration Lab Coordinating Center Intelligence improve its risk prediction models. This project may also identify patientreported outcomes (PROs) that can be effectively integrated into routine VA clinical practice, as the VA begins to explore inclusion of PROs into the VA electronic health record. We are requesting approval to conduct this survey to a nationally representative sample of 10,000 patients who obtain primary care in VA because there are no extant VA surveys that capture the range of patient factors that we propose to collect, which are not available in VA administrative databases. If we did not capture these patient factors, our risk prediction analysis might be incorrect or biased. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Estimated Annual Burden: PACT: Veteran’s Health and WellBeing Survey—2500. Estimated Average Burden per Respondent: PACT: Veteran’s Health and WellBeing Survey—30 minutes. Frequency of Response: Annually. Estimated Annual Responses: PACT: Veteran’s Health and WellBeing Survey—5,000.
