Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), Federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. In addition, the PRA also requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each new proposed collection, each proposed extension of existing collection of information, and each reinstatement of previously approved information collection before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, we are publishing this notice of a proposed data collection as described below. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and (e) estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information, to search data sources, to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:13 Mar 01, 2017 Jkt 241001 Proposed Project CDC Worksite Health ScoreCard (HSC) (OMB Control Number 0920– 1014, expires 4/30/2017)—Revision— National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description In the United States, chronic diseases such as heart disease, obesity and diabetes are among the leading causes of death and disability. Although chronic diseases are among the most common and costly health problems, they are also among the most preventable. Adopting healthy behaviors—such as eating nutritious foods, being physically active and avoiding tobacco use—can prevent the devastating effects and reduce the rates of these diseases. Employers are recognizing the role they can play in creating healthy work environments and providing employees with opportunities to make healthy lifestyle choices. To support these efforts, CDC developed an online organizational assessment tool called the CDC Worksite Health Scorecard. The CDC Worksite Health Scorecard is a tool designed to help employers assess whether they have implemented evidence-based health promotion interventions or strategies in their worksites to prevent heart disease, stroke, and related conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, and obesity. The revised assessment contains 151 core yes/no questions with an additional 20 optional demographic questions divided into 19 modules (risk factors/ conditions/demographics) that assess how evidence-based health promotion strategies are implemented at a worksite. These strategies include health promoting counseling services, environmental supports, policies, health plan benefits, and other worksite programs shown to be effective in preventing heart disease, stroke, and related health conditions. Employers can use this tool to assess how a comprehensive health promotion and disease prevention program is offered to their employees, to help identify program gaps, and to prioritize The proposed information collection revision supports development, validation, and evaluation of the updated CDC Worksite Health ScoreCard (HSC), a web-based PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 12355 organizational assessment tool designed to help employers identify gaps in their health promotion programs and prioritize high-impact strategies for health promotion at their worksites (available at http://www.cdc.gov/ healthscorecard). HSC users will create a user account, complete the online assessment and receive an immediate feedback report that summarizes the current status of their worksite health program; identifies gaps in current programming; benchmarks individual employer results against other users of the system; and provides access to worksite health tools and resources to address employer gaps and priority program areas. The updated HSC includes questions in four new topic areas—Sleep, Alcohol & Other Substance Abuse, Cancer, and Musculoskeletal Disorders—along with revisions to previously existing questions based on supporting evidence. In 2017, CDC will recruit one hundred employers (each represented by two knowledgeable employees) to pilot test the updated HSC. From the employers that complete the survey, CDC will conduct follow-up telephone interviews on a subset of about 15 employers (each represented by two knowledgeable employees). The follow-up telephone interviews will gather general impressions of the HSC—particularly the new modules—and also allow for discussion of items that presented discrepancies (and items that were left blank) to understand the respondent’s interpretation and perspective of their answers these questions. This process will assess the validity and reliability of the questions, as well as allow the CDC to gather suggestions for additional refinements, where necessary. Following this pilot testing, CDC will continue to provide outreach to and register approximately 800 employers per year to use the online survey HSC in their workplace health program assessment, planning, and implementation efforts which is open to employers of all sizes, industry sectors, and geographic locations across the country. CDC will seek a three-year OMB approval for this information collection project. Participation is voluntary and there are no costs to respondents other than their time.

Background and Brief Description The National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) provides free or low-cost breast and cervical cancer screening and diagnostic services to low-income, uninsured, and underserved women. The NBCCEDP is an organized screening program with a full complement of services including outreach and patient education, patient navigation, case management, professional development, and tracking and follow-up that contribute to the program’s success. Compared to when the NBCCEDP was established, more women are eligible for insurance coverage but there are still many women who are not insured and many insured women not obtaining preventive services that they are eligible to receive. Currently, the NBCCEDP not only provides screening services to uninsured and underinsured, but has expanded its services to include population-based activities that prevent missed opportunities and ensure that all women receive appropriate breast and cervical cancer screening.

With recent increases in the numbers of women who are insured, there is a need to understand the experiences of women who had been served by the NBCCEDP and become newly insured. This project will inform the development of future activities of the NBCCEDP so that all women receive the information and support services needed for obtaining clinical preventive services. The purpose of this project is to examine the facilitators and barriers to receiving clinical preventive services among newly insured medically underserved women who had previously been served by the NBCCEDP. The Women’s Preventive Services Study aims to survey newly insured women about what clinical preventive health services they receive, what barriers and facilitators they experience, and their ability to maintain consistent health insurance coverage. While having newly acquired health insurance will improve access to preventive services, insurance coverage alone would not result in improved clinical preventive services utilization for all women, especially among underserved populations. This project proposes to follow a group of women previously served by the NBCCEDP over three years by administering a yearly questionnaire. This study will focus on the following research questions: 1. What are the insurance coverage patterns (e.g., public or private insurance) for a sample of medically underserved women previously screened through the NBCCEDP? 2. What barriers and facilitators do these women face in enrolling in new insurance coverage? 3. What preventive health services, including cancer screening, do these women receive? 4.

Proposed Project

    CDC Worksite Health ScoreCard (HSC) (OMB Control Number 0920-1014, 
expires 4/30/2017)--Revision--National Center for Chronic Disease 
Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control 
and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    In the United States, chronic diseases such as heart disease, 
obesity and diabetes are among the leading causes of death and 
disability. Although chronic diseases are among the most common and 
costly health problems, they are also among the most preventable. 
Adopting healthy behaviors--such as eating nutritious foods, being 
physically active and avoiding tobacco use--can prevent the devastating 
effects and reduce the rates of these diseases.
    Employers are recognizing the role they can play in creating 
healthy work environments and providing employees with opportunities to 
make healthy lifestyle choices. To support these efforts, CDC developed 
an online organizational assessment tool called the CDC Worksite Health 
Scorecard.
    The CDC Worksite Health Scorecard is a tool designed to help 
employers assess whether they have implemented evidence-based health 
promotion interventions or strategies in their worksites to prevent 
heart disease, stroke, and related conditions such as hypertension, 
diabetes, and obesity. The revised assessment contains 151 core yes/no 
questions with an additional 20 optional demographic questions divided 
into 19 modules (risk factors/conditions/demographics) that assess how 
evidence-based health promotion strategies are implemented at a 
worksite. These strategies include health promoting counseling 
services, environmental supports, policies, health plan benefits, and 
other worksite programs shown to be effective in preventing heart 
disease, stroke, and related health conditions. Employers can use this 
tool to assess how a comprehensive health promotion and disease 
prevention program is offered to their employees, to help identify 
program gaps, and to prioritize
    The proposed information collection revision supports development, 
validation, and evaluation of the updated CDC Worksite Health ScoreCard 
(HSC), a web-based organizational assessment tool designed to help 
employers identify gaps in their health promotion programs and 
prioritize high-impact strategies for health promotion at their 
worksites (available at http://www.cdc.gov/healthscorecard). HSC users 
will create a user account, complete the online assessment and receive 
an immediate feedback report that summarizes the current status of 
their worksite health program; identifies gaps in current programming; 
benchmarks individual employer results against other users of the 
system; and provides access to worksite health tools and resources to 
address employer gaps and priority program areas.
    The updated HSC includes questions in four new topic areas--Sleep, 
Alcohol & Other Substance Abuse, Cancer, and Musculoskeletal 
Disorders--along with revisions to previously existing questions based 
on supporting evidence. In 2017, CDC will recruit one hundred employers 
(each represented by two knowledgeable employees) to pilot test the 
updated HSC. From the employers that complete the survey, CDC will 
conduct follow-up telephone interviews on a subset of about 15 
employers (each represented by two knowledgeable employees). The 
follow-up telephone interviews will gather general impressions of the 
HSC--particularly the new modules--and also allow for discussion of 
items that presented discrepancies (and items that were left blank) to 
understand the respondent's interpretation and perspective of their 
answers these questions.
    This process will assess the validity and reliability of the 
questions, as well as allow the CDC to gather suggestions for 
additional refinements, where necessary.
    Following this pilot testing, CDC will continue to provide outreach 
to and register approximately 800 employers per year to use the online 
survey HSC in their workplace health program assessment, planning, and 
implementation efforts which is open to employers of all sizes, 
industry sectors, and geographic locations across the country.
    CDC will seek a three-year OMB approval for this information 
collection project. Participation is voluntary and there are no costs 
to respondents other than their time.
