Patient registries have received significant attention and funding in recent years. Similar to controlled studies, patient registries represent some burden to patients (e.g., time to complete patient reported outcome measures, risk of loss of privacy), who often participate voluntarily in hopes of improving knowledge about a disease or condition. Patient registries also represent a substantial investment of health research resources. Despite these factors, patient registries are not required to be registered in ClinicalTrials.gov, presenting the potential for duplication of efforts and insufficient dissemination of findings that are not published in the peerreviewed literature. To fulfill the obligation to patients and to ensure that resources are used in the most efficient manner, registries need to be listed in a manner similar to that of trials in ClinicalTrials.gov. By providing a centralized point of collection for information about all patient registries in the United States, the Registry of Patient Registries (RoPR) enhances patient registry information, extracted from ClinicalTrials.gov, building on AHRQ’s efforts to describe the quality, appropriateness, and effectiveness of health services (and E:\FR\FM\13JYN1.SGM 13JYN1 sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 133 / Thursday, July 13, 2017 / Notices patient registries in particular) in a more readily available, central location. The RoPR database system aims to achieve the following objectives: (1) Provide a searchable database of patient registries in the United States (to promote collaboration, reduce redundancy, and improve transparency); (2) Facilitate the use of common data fields and definitions in similar health conditions (to improve opportunities for sharing, comparing, and linkage); (3) Provide a public repository of searchable summary results (including results from registries that have not yet been published in the peer-reviewed literature); (4) Offer a search tool to locate existing data that researchers can request for use in new studies; and (5) Serve as a recruitment tool for researchers and patients interested in participating in patient registries. To achieve the objectives of this project, the following data collections will be implemented: (1) Collect information on registries from users who populate the RoPR database system. AHRQ is proposing to add a selfregistration option to the RoPR database so that registry owners do not need a National Library of Medicine Protocol Registration System (PRS) account to contribute. The current OMB-approved RoPR system requires users to have a PRS account. In the current data entry process, registry owners enter most of the registry information using the ClinicalTrials.gov PRS. If a user defines the ClinicalTrials.gov record as a patient registry, that user will have the option of following a link to the RoPR submission page to input additional information about the registry. Patient registry data entered in the PRS is uploaded to the RoPR system daily and is accessible (along with information entered directly into RoPR) to the public via the RoPR search function. Under the AHRQ proposal, these users could complete a simple registration on the RoPR site, which would be less burdensome than the PRS registration process, and then enter all registry information directly on RoPR. The rationale behind this alternative registration pathway is that many registries are created for quality reporting, outcome tracking, and quality improvement purposes, rather than for research purposes. Registering in ClinicalTrials.gov implies a research VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:41 Jul 12, 2017 Jkt 241001 purpose, so it is not necessarily appropriate for non-research registries to register in ClinicalTrials.gov, and many have expressed that they do not wish to do so. AHRQ anticipates that more than 75 percent of registries would still register through the ClinicalTrials.com. However, the remaining registries are extremely important for health policy, and providing them with a registration pathway furthers the goal of creating a central place where stakeholders can find information on research and nonresearch registries pertinent to a specific clinical topic. The new self-registration pathway is being developed by AHRQ through its contractor, L&M Policy Research and subcontractor Truven Health Analytics, an IBM Company, pursuant to AHRQ’s statutory authority to conduct and support research on health care and on systems for the delivery of such care, including activities with respect to the quality, effectiveness, efficiency, appropriateness and value of health care services and with respect to database development. 42 U.S.C. 299a(a)(1) and (8). AHRQ, in collaboration with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), is also proposing to add three fields to the self-registration pathway related to the CMS initiative to create a Centralized Repository for Public Health Agencies and Clinical Data Registry Reporting. The purpose of the repository is to assist eligible professionals, eligible hospitals, and critical access hospitals in finding entities that accept electronic public health data. By adding these fields to the existing RoPR database, AHRQ will further the goal of creating a central place where stakeholders can find all pertinent information on registries. Method of Collection The purpose and the use of the RoPR is to provide a readily available public resource strictly for patient registries, following the model of ClinicalTrials.gov, allowing for the increased availability and efficacy of patient registries. The information being collected in the RoPR Record is visible to the public visiting the RoPR Web site, and is readily available for public use. The RoPR is an ongoing data collection initiative. Estimated Annual Respondent Burden Exhibit 1 shows the estimated annualized burden hours for the PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 32367 respondent’s time to participate in the RoPR. In 2016, 65 respondents manually entered a new RoPR record. It is expected that more than 75% of patient registries are research-focused and will continue to use the original ClinicalTrials.gov pathway described above. Thus, it is estimated that once the self-registration pathway is available, approximately 65 respondents will enter RoPR records through the ClinicalTrials.gov link annually, and an additional 16 respondents (roughly 25% of 65), representing non-research registries, will enter RoPR records through the new self-registration pathway. Each respondent would to need enter his or her new RoPR record only once. The RoPR system sends an automated reminder to any registry owner who has not updated his or her RoPR record in the past year. In 2016, 132 RoPR entries were updated and released. Using the same logic as above, it is estimated that an additional 33 entries (25% of 132) might be updated annually once the self-registration pathway is available. In January 2017, Truven Health Analytics used a sample of existing ClinicalTrials.gov registry entries to estimate the time needed to enter all additional fields added through the selfregistration process. The sample included records representing a range of depth and complexity. For example, one registry record contained only one primary outcome measure. Another record contained three more detailed outcome measures (one primary, one secondary, and one other.) As a result of the knowledge gained during these processes, it is estimated that it will take users 10 minutes, on average, to manually enter the additional fields added through the selfregistration process. Adding this time to the estimated burden of completing the original RoPR fields (45 minutes), it is estimated that it will take users 55 minutes to complete all fields through the self-registration pathway. It is estimated that it will take users 5 minutes to review and update the fields added through the selfregistration pathway. Adding this time to the estimated burden of reviewing and updating the original RoPR fields (15 minutes), it is estimated that it will take 20 minutes for a person to review and make updates to an existing RoPR record created through the selfregistration pathway.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Proposed Revision of a Currently Approved Collection Project: 
``Developing a Registry of Registries.''
    OMB Control Number: 0935-0203.
    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501-
3521, AHRQ is extending the comment period for this this proposed 
information collection on the development of a registry of patient 
registries. Patient registries have received significant attention and 
funding in recent years. Similar to controlled studies, patient 
registries represent some burden to patients (e.g., time to complete 
patient reported outcome measures, risk of loss of privacy), who often 
participate voluntarily in hopes of improving knowledge about a disease 
or condition. Patient registries also represent a substantial 
investment of health research resources. Despite these factors, patient

dissemination of findings that are not published in the peer-reviewed 
literature. To fulfill the obligation to patients and to ensure that

patient registries in particular) in a more readily available, central 
location.
    The RoPR database system aims to achieve the following objectives:
    (1) Provide a searchable database of patient registries in the 
United States (to promote collaboration, reduce redundancy, and improve 
transparency);
    (2) Facilitate the use of common data fields and definitions in 
similar health conditions (to improve opportunities for sharing, 
comparing, and linkage);
    (3) Provide a public repository of searchable summary results 
(including results from registries that have not yet been published in 
the peer-reviewed literature);
    (4) Offer a search tool to locate existing data that researchers 
can request for use in new studies; and
    (5) Serve as a recruitment tool for researchers and patients 
interested in participating in patient registries.
    To achieve the objectives of this project, the following data 
collections will be implemented:
    (1) Collect information on registries from users who populate the 
RoPR database system.
    AHRQ is proposing to add a self-registration option to the RoPR 
database so that registry owners do not need a National Library of 
Medicine Protocol Registration System (PRS) account to contribute. The 
current OMB-approved RoPR system requires users to have a PRS account.

299a(a)(1) and (8).
    AHRQ, in collaboration with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid 
Services (CMS), is also proposing to add three fields to the self-
registration pathway related to the CMS initiative to create a 
Centralized Repository for Public Health Agencies and Clinical Data

finding entities that accept electronic public health data. By adding 
these fields to the existing RoPR database, AHRQ will further the goal 
of creating a central place where stakeholders can find all pertinent 
information on registries.

Method of Collection

    The purpose and the use of the RoPR is to provide a readily 
available public resource strictly for patient registries, following 
the model of ClinicalTrials.gov, allowing for the increased 
availability and efficacy of patient registries. The information being 
collected in the RoPR Record is visible to the public visiting the RoPR 
Web site, and is readily available for public use.
    The RoPR is an ongoing data collection initiative.

Estimated Annual Respondent Burden

    Exhibit 1 shows the estimated annualized burden hours for the 
respondent's time to participate in the RoPR. In 2016, 65 respondents 
manually entered a new RoPR record. It is expected that more than 75% 
of patient registries are research-focused and will continue to use the 
original ClinicalTrials.gov pathway described above. Thus, it is 
estimated that once the self-registration pathway is available, 
approximately 65 respondents will enter RoPR records through the 
ClinicalTrials.gov link annually, and an additional 16 respondents 
(roughly 25% of 65), representing non-research registries, will enter 
RoPR records through the new self-registration pathway.
    Each respondent would to need enter his or her new RoPR record only 
once. The RoPR system sends an automated reminder to any registry owner 
who has not updated his or her RoPR record in the past year. In 2016, 
132 RoPR entries were updated and released. Using the same logic as 
above, it is estimated that an additional 33 entries (25% of 132) might 
be updated annually once the self-registration pathway is available.
    In January 2017, Truven Health Analytics used a sample of existing 
ClinicalTrials.gov registry entries to estimate the time needed to 
enter all additional fields added through the self-registration 
process. The sample included records representing a range of depth and 
complexity. For example, one registry record contained only one primary 
outcome measure. Another record contained three more detailed outcome 
measures (one primary, one secondary, and one other.)
    As a result of the knowledge gained during these processes, it is 
estimated that it will take users 10 minutes, on average, to manually 
enter the additional fields added through the self-registration 
process. Adding this time to the estimated burden of completing the 
original RoPR fields (45 minutes), it is estimated that it will take 
users 55 minutes to complete all fields through the self-registration 
pathway.
    It is estimated that it will take users 5 minutes to review and 
update the fields added through the self-registration pathway. Adding 
this time to the estimated burden of reviewing and updating the 
original RoPR fields (15 minutes), it is estimated that it will take 20 
minutes for a person to review and make updates to an existing RoPR 
record created through the self-registration pathway.
