Proposed Information Collection Activity; Comment Request, 31064-31065 [2017-14032]

Download as PDF 31064 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 127 / Wednesday, July 5, 2017 / Notices Proposed Project Survey of Surveillance Records of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus from 1960 to Present (OMB Control Number 0920–1146, expiration date 11/ 30/2019)—Revision—National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The Zika virus response necessitates the collection of county and sub-county level records for Aedes aegypti and Ae. albopictus, the vectors of Zika virus. This information will be used to update species distribution maps for the United States and to develop a model aimed at identifying where these vectors can survive and reproduce. CDC is seeking to revise the collection approved under OMB Control number 0920–1146 for clearance to collect information for three years. In February 2016, OMB issued emergency clearance for a county-level survey of vector surveillance records for a limited number of years (2006–2015) (OMB Control No. 0920–1101, expiration date 8/31/2016). OMB then issued clearance for a follow-up information collection similar to the first (OMB Control No. 0920–1146, expiration date 11/30/2019) but expanded the years that were evaluated. The information collection in this request will be very similar of those surveys, but will collect these data monthly going forward. The previous two surveys aimed to describe the reported distribution of the Zika virus vectors Aedes aegypti and Ae. albopictus from 1960 until late 2016 at county and sub-county spatial scales. The 56 year data review was necessary because many recent records for these species of mosquitos were lacking, likely because from 2004–2015 most vector surveillance focused on vectors of West Nile virus (Culex spp.) rather than Zika vectors. The surveys yielded important data allowing CDC, states, and partners to understand the spread of these mosquitos in the U.S. as well as the environmental conditions necessary for them to survive. The surveys reviewed data records from 1960–2016 and resulted in a complete assessment of historical records of mosquito surveillance but were not designed to collect these types of data routinely over time. In this revision, we will also seek information on locations of the mosquito traps at sub-county spatial scales through an online data portal called MosquitoNET (https:// www.cdc.gov/Arbonet/MosquitoNET) and will be expanded to include insecticide susceptibility and resistance data on local populations of mosquitos. Data will be collected monthly through the expiration date of this OMB approval. Such information will aid in (1) targeting vector control efforts to prevent mosquito-borne Zika virus transmission in the continental U.S. and (2) targeting future vector surveillance efforts. The resulting maps and models will inform the public and policy makers of the known distribution of these vectors, identify gaps in vector surveillance, and target allocation of surveillance and prevention resources. As part of the Zika response, efforts to identify Ae. aegypti and Ae. albopictus in the continental U.S. were substantially enhanced during 2016 and funding will be provided to states to continue to enhance surveillance for these vectors through the longstanding Epidemiology and Laboratory Capacity Program that was expanded to now include mosquito surveillance. Respondents will include public health professionals who are recipients of ELC funding or their designated points of contact. The respondents will be contacted via ELC primary recipients and instructed to set up accounts on the MosquitoNET Web site via a simple process. Data collection from ELC recipients will then begin. In order to limit the burden of data entry on respondents who may be entering information for their state, they will have the option of submitting the data via email to CDC using an excel survey. This information collection request is authorized by Section 301 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 241). The total estimated annualized number of burden hours is 189. There will be no anticipated costs to respondents other than time.

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: Small Health Care Provider Quality Improvement Program, OMB No. 0915– 0387 ¥ Extension Abstract: This program is authorized by Title III, Public Health Service Act, Section 330A(g) (42 U.S.C. 254c(g)), as amended by Section 201, Public Law 107–251, and Section 4, Public Law 110–355. This authority directs the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) to support grants that expand access to, coordinate, contain the cost SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 of, and improve the quality of essential health care services, including preventive and emergency services, through the development of health care networks in rural and frontier areas and regions. The authority allows HRSA to provide funds to rural and frontier communities to support the direct delivery of health care and related services, expand existing services, or enhance health service delivery through education, promotion, and prevention programs. The purpose of the Small Health Care Provider Quality Improvement Grant (Rural Quality) Program is to provide support to rural primary care providers for implementation of quality improvement activities. The program promotes the development of an evidence-based culture and delivery of coordinated care in the primary care setting. Additional objectives of the program include improved health outcomes for patients, enhanced chronic disease management, and better engagement of patients and their caregivers. Organizations participating in the program are required to use an evidence-based quality improvement model; develop, implement and assess effectiveness of quality improvement initiatives; and use health information technology (HIT) to collect and report data. HIT may include an electronic patient registry or an electronic health record, and is a critical component for improving quality and patient outcomes. With HIT, it is possible to generate timely and meaningful data, which helps providers track and plan care. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: FORHP collects this information to quantify the impact of grant funding on access to health care, quality of services, and improvement of health outcomes. FORHP uses the data for program improvement, and grantees use the data for performance tracking. No changes are proposed from the current data collection effort. A 60-day notice was published in the Federal Register (81 FR 95621, (December 28, 2016)). There were no public comments. Likely Respondents: Grantees of the Small Health Care Provider Quality Improvement Program. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, E:\FR\FM\05JYN1.SGM 05JYN1
