Information Collection Request Title: Client-Level Data Reporting System OMB No. 0915–0323—Revision. Abstract: The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program’s (RWHAP) client-level data reporting system, entitled the RWHAP Services Report or the Ryan White Services Report (RSR), is designed to collect information from grant PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 recipients, as well as their subcontracted service providers, funded under Parts A, B, C, and D of RWHAP statute. RWHAP, authorized under Title XXVI of the Public Health Service Act, as amended by the Ryan White HIV/ AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009, awards funding to recipients to provide efficient and effective health care and support services, with an emphasis on providing life-saving and life-extending services for people living with HIV across the country. HRSA is streamlining the data collection forms by making the following changes: Within Client Demographics: • Deletion of variable ID 8, ‘‘SelfReported Transgender Status’’. • Addition of ‘‘Transgender Male to Female’’, ‘‘Transgender Female to Male’’, and ‘‘Transgender Other’’ as response options for variable ID 7, ‘‘SelfReported Gender’’. Within Services: • Deletion of ‘‘Parts A and B’’ from the ‘‘Early Intervention Services’’ response option for variable ID 19, ‘‘Core Medical Services Delivered’’. Deletion of ‘‘Legal Services’’ and ‘‘Permanency Planning’’, and the additional of ‘‘Other Professional Services’’ response options for variable ID 35, ‘‘Support Services’’. E:\FR\FM\07JNN1.SGM 07JNN1 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.

    Information Collection Request Title: Client-Level Data Reporting 
System OMB No. 0915-0323--Revision.
    Abstract: The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program's (RWHAP) client-level 
data reporting system, entitled the RWHAP Services Report or the Ryan 
White Services Report (RSR), is designed to collect information from 
grant recipients, as well as their subcontracted service providers, 
funded under Parts A, B, C, and D of RWHAP statute. RWHAP, authorized 
under Title XXVI of the Public Health Service Act, as amended by the 
Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009, awards funding to 
recipients to provide efficient and effective health care and support 
services, with an emphasis on providing life-saving and life-extending 
services for people living with HIV across the country. HRSA is 
streamlining the data collection forms by making the following changes:
    Within Client Demographics:
     Deletion of variable ID 8, ``Self-Reported Transgender 
Status''.
     Addition of ``Transgender Male to Female'', ``Transgender 
Female to Male'', and ``Transgender Other'' as response options for 
variable ID 7, ``Self-Reported Gender''.
    Within Services:
     Deletion of ``Parts A and B'' from the ``Early 
Intervention Services'' response option for variable ID 19, ``Core 
Medical Services Delivered''. Deletion of ``Legal Services'' and 
``Permanency Planning'', and the additional of ``Other Professional 
Services'' response options for variable ID 35, ``Support Services''.

[[Page 26499]]

    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, ``Self-Reported Transgender Status'', 
will streamline reporting of client demographic data. With the 
additional response options for variable ID 7, ``Self-Reported 
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.
