Download as PDF 26499 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 108 / Wednesday, June 7, 2017 / Notices Within Clinical Information: • Variable ID 47, ‘‘Date of First HIV Outpatient/Ambulatory Health Care Visit’’ will be renamed ‘‘Date of First HIV Outpatient/Ambulatory Health Services Visit’’. • Variable ID 48, ‘‘Dates of All Outpatient Ambulatory Health Care Visits’’ will be renamed ‘‘Dates of All Outpatient/Ambulatory Health Services Visits’’. • Variable ID 74, ‘‘OAMC Link Date’’ will be renamed ‘‘OAHS Link Date’’. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: RWHAP’s statute specifies HRSA’s responsibility to administer grant funds, allocate funds, evaluate programs for the populations served, and improve efficiency and effectiveness through quality HIV care and treatment for patients. Accurate records of the providers receiving Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program funding, the clients served, and services provided continue to be critical for the implementation of the statute. The RSR provides data on the characteristics of RWHAP-funded grant recipients, their contracted service providers, and the clients served. The RSR is intended to support clinical quality management, performance measurement, service delivery, and client monitoring at the systems and client levels. The reporting system consists of two online data forms, the Recipient Report and the Service Provider Report, as well as a data file containing the client-level data elements. Data are submitted annually. The statute specifies the importance of grant recipient accountability and linking performance to the budget. The RSR is used to ensure compliance with the statute, evaluate the progress of programs, monitor grant recipient and provider performance, and inform annual reports to Congress. Information collected through the RSR is critical for HRSA, state, city, and local grant recipients, and individual providers to assess the status of existing HIV-related service delivery systems, investigate trends in service utilization, and health outcomes. Minor revisions to the RSR are being made to streamline data collection and reduce reporting burden. The removal of variable ID 8, ‘‘SelfReported Transgender Status’’, will streamline reporting of client demographic data. With the additional response options for variable ID 7, ‘‘SelfReported Gender’’—‘‘Transgender Male to Female’’, ‘‘Transgender Female to Male’’, and ‘‘Transgender Other’’, HRSA will improve the overall quality of demographic data that are reported, which is essential for program monitoring. The additions and deletions of response options for variable IDs 19 and 35, as well as the renaming of variable IDs 47, 48, and 74, will allow HRSA to align its data collection efforts with recent program policy notices (e.g. Policy Clarification Notice 16–02, Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Services: Eligible Individuals and Allowable Uses of Funds) that incorporate both HHS regulations and program specific requirements set forth in the RWHAP statute. Likely Respondents: Ryan White HIV/ AIDS Program Part A, Part B, Part C, and Part D recipients and their contracted service providers. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the information requested. 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. The total burden for this revised form has decreased by 6,416 hours due to the deletion of several data elements and an estimated decrease in the number of respondents. The total annual burden hours estimated for this ICR are summarized in the table below.

designed to compensate eligible teaching health centers for those 
expenses directly associated with resident training, while indirect 
medical expenses payments are intended to compensate for the additional 
costs of training residents in such programs.
    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: THCGME program payments 
are prospective payments, and the statute provides for a reconciliation 
process, through which overpayments may be recouped and underpayments

Reconciliation Tool are THCGME program award recipients.
    Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by 
persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the 
information requested. This includes the time needed to review 
instructions; to develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and
