SUMMARY: When submitting comments or requesting information, please include the information request collection title for reference, in compliance with Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. Information Collection Request Title: Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Part F Dental Services Report, OMB No. 0915– 0151—Extension. Abstract: The Dental Reimbursement Program (DRP) and the CommunityBased Dental Partnership Program (CBDPP) under Part F of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) offer funding to accredited dental schools and other accredited dental education programs to support the provision of oral health services for people living with HIV as well as the education and training of oral health providers in HIV oral health care. Institutions eligible for these RWHAP Part F funds are accredited schools of dentistry and other accredited dental education programs, such as dental hygiene programs or those sponsored by a school of dentistry, a hospital, or a public or private institution that offers postdoctoral training in the specialties of dentistry, advanced education in general dentistry, or a dental general practice residency. The Dental Services Report (DSR) collects data on program information, client demographics, oral health services, funding, and training. Awards are authorized under section 2692(b) of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 300ff–111(b)). Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The primary purpose of collecting this information annually is to verify applicant eligibility and determine reimbursement amounts for DRP applicants, as well as to document the program accomplishments of CBDPP grant recipients. This information also allows HRSA to learn about (1) the extent of the involvement of dental schools and programs in treating SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: patients with HIV, (2) the number and characteristics of clients who receive RWHAP-supported oral health services, (3) the types and frequency of the provision of these services, (4) the nonreimbursed costs of oral health care provided to patients living with HIV, and (5) the scope of grant recipients’ community-based collaborations and training of providers. In addition to meeting the goal of accountability to Congress, clients, public and community groups, and the general public, information collected in the DSR is critical for HRSA, state and local grantees, and individual providers to help assess the status of existing HIVrelated health service delivery systems. Likely Respondents: Accredited schools of dentistry and other accredited dental education programs, such as dental hygiene programs or those sponsored by a school of dentistry, a hospital, or a public or private institution that offers postdoctoral training in the specialties of dentistry, advanced education in general dentistry, or a dental general practice residency. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose, or provide the information requested.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: When submitting comments or requesting information, please include the information request collection title for reference, in compliance with Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. Information Collection Request Title: Assessing Client Factors Associated with Detectable HIV Viral Loads and Models of Care and the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program OMB No. 0906– xxxx–New. Abstract: The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP), first authorized by jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:43 May 17, 2017 Jkt 241001 the U.S. Congress in 1990, is administered by HRSA’s HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB). In 2015, 533,036 clients received services from RWHAP-funded providers; 97.0 percent were living with HIV. This information collection request covers two distinct evaluation studies with RWHAP provider sites that will share some data collection instruments. The sharing of data collection instruments will minimize the burden on RWHAP provider sites related to data collection, increase the sample size that could be used for data analysis resulting in greater generalizability of results, and provide richer and more robust data that may offer additional depth to the findings of each study. The first evaluation study, Assessing Client Factors Associated with Detectable HIV Viral Loads, will explore clinical activities and barriers to achieving and sustaining viral suppression. Early and effective treatment for HIV has been shown to greatly reduce associated morbidity and mortality. In spite of the known benefit of treatment, many individuals remain out of care or access care only intermittently; the CDC estimated that, in 2013, approximately 45 percent of people living with HIV (PLWH) in the United States were not virally suppressed, indicating a significant gap in the percentage of PLWH who are being successfully engaged and retained in care. In spite of the increased attention on retention in care and the overarching goal of viral suppression, little data exist regarding the specific individual factors that are associated with sub-optimal viral suppression. Such information would be valuable in targeting programs to reach populations that are currently not achieving viral suppression. The second evaluation study, Models of Care and the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program, seeks to answer the critical questions of what individual and system-wide factors, including the models of care employed among RWHAP provider sites, contribute to better health outcomes for PLWH. While advances in treatment have improved survival in patients with HIV, longer lives are associated with increased prevalence of adverse effects of HIV infection and therapeutic complications, concurrent with medical conditions related to aging processes that would occur in the absence of HIV. These longterm complications amplify chronic disease management as a major issue for the HIV population and a challenge for the delivery of effective health care. These studies will inform HAB about how the method of health services delivery (the ‘‘model of care’’) PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 contributes to better health outcomes, including HIV-related outcomes. Understanding the most effective models of care will be important for HIV specialists, primary care physicians, and other clinicians who care for PLWH as they design and coordinate a full array of primary care and support services for their HIV patients. These primary care and support services have a direct impact on viral suppression, which, in turn, improves life expectancy and quality of life, and prevents HIV transmission. The two studies inform each other in that the degree to which clients are virally suppressed may be attributed partly to the model of care practiced at their clinic. Likewise, the degree to which its clients have achieved viral suppression may drive a clinic to practice a particular model of care. The two studies will collect several identical data elements through their individual collection instruments, allowing data to be aggregated across the two studies. The aggregation of data across the two studies will minimize the burden on RWHAP provider sites related to data collection, increase the sample size that could be used for data analysis resulting in greater generalizability of results, and provide richer and more robust data that may offer additional depth to the findings of each study. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The Assessing Client Factors Associated with Detectable HIV Viral Loads study will identify characteristics of RWHAP clients and health facilities that are associated with the ability to achieve and sustain an undetectable viral load as compared to the characteristics that are associated with sub-optimal viral suppression. This study will enable the development of better targeted services for improved viral suppression rates. The Models of Care and the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program study will compare HIV and primary health outcomes across various models of care to determine which are most effective in responding to HIV to improve health outcomes for people living with HIV and to prevent HIV transmissions. The results from this study will enable improvements or redesigns of effective delivery of HIV care among Ryan White providers, which will, in turn, improve HIV clinical outcomes such as viral suppression. In both studies, an analysis of the perceptions of providers and clients will further support the understanding of the impact of individual and system-wide factors on achieving health outcomes. The two studies will share data to inform both studies’ objectives, allow E:\FR\FM\18MYN1.SGM 18MYN1
