SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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 the U.S. Congress in 1990, is administered by HRSA’s HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB). The RWHAP provides medical services, treatment, and/or support services to 533,036 clients in 2015; 97.0 percent of these clients were living with HIV. This information collection request covers two distinct evaluation studies with RWHAP provider sites that will share components of data collection instruments through shared variables. Sharing data collection instruments will minimize burden for RWHAP provider sites collecting this data and will increase the sample size for data analysis thus resulting in more robust data and greater generalizability of results. The first evaluation study, Assessing Client Factors Associated with Detectable HIV Viral Loads, will explore individuals’ specific facilitators and barriers to achieving and sustaining viral suppression. Early and effective ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00046 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 treatment for HIV has been shown to greatly reduce associated morbidity and mortality, and prevents transmission of HIV. 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 is valuable for targeting programs to reach populations that are currently not achieving HIV 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. Yet little is known about how the method of health services delivery (the ‘‘model of care’’) contributes to better health outcomes, including HIV-related outcomes. For example, does it make a difference if a patient receives HIV care from a primary care provider, a E:\FR\FM\13NON1.SGM 13NON1 52310 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 217 / Monday, November 13, 2017 / Notices specialist, or from a care team that includes both? Understanding the most effective models of care is 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 patients. These primary care and support services have a direct impact on HIV 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 achieve and sustain viral suppression 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 burden for RWHAP provider sites collecting this data and will increase the sample size for data analysis thus resulting in more robust data and greater generalizability of results. A 60-day Federal Register Notice was published in the Federal Register on May 18, 2017 (Volume 82, page 22838) which solicited comments on this data collection. Four comments were received that focused on how facilities will be selected for participation and the importance of adequate nutrition for PLWH. 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 HIV/AIDS Program 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 for a larger sample size from which to generalize conclusions, and reduce the overall burden of response on RWHAP providers and clients. The objectives of both studies will be achieved through collection of the following data: • RWHAP client records abstraction—Medical chart and administrative records (e.g., service utilization and health outcomes data); • RWHAP provider interviews—Site staff interviewees (in person); • RWHAP client focus groups (Models of Care study sites only)— Clients at selected clinics that represent a given model of care; • RWHAP client surveys (HIV Viral Suppression study sites only)—Clients with detectable and undetectable viral load at each clinic; and • RWHAP client semi-structured interviews (HIV Viral Suppression study sites only)—Clients with detectable and undetectable viral load. These studies will build upon and complement HAB’s study focusing on RWHAP outcomes within the context of the changing health care landscape; and will use the RWHAP site survey and chart abstraction instruments that were submitted as part of that study. The data will be collected by a HRSA contractor. Likely Respondents: RWHAP Administrators, RWHAP Service Providers, and RWHAP Clients. 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 annual burden hours estimated for this ICR are summarized in the table below. Both research studies are included in the table, with burden proportional to the number of RWHAP provider sites from which each study will collect data: 25 distinct facilities for Assessing Client Factors Associated with Detectable HIV Viral Loads and 50 distinct facilities for Models of Care and the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    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 the U.S. Congress in 1990, is administered by HRSA's HIV/AIDS Bureau 
(HAB). The RWHAP provides medical services, treatment, and/or support 
services to 533,036 clients in 2015; 97.0 percent of these clients were 
living with HIV. This information collection request covers two 
distinct evaluation studies with RWHAP provider sites that will share 
components of data collection instruments through shared variables. 
Sharing data collection instruments will minimize burden for RWHAP 
provider sites collecting this data and will increase the sample size 
for data analysis thus resulting in more robust data and greater 
generalizability of results.
    The first evaluation study, Assessing Client Factors Associated 
with Detectable HIV Viral Loads, will explore individuals' specific 
facilitators and barriers to achieving and sustaining viral 
suppression. Early and effective treatment for HIV has been shown to 
greatly reduce associated morbidity and mortality, and prevents 
transmission of HIV. 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 is valuable for targeting programs to reach populations 
that are currently not achieving HIV 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 long-term complications amplify chronic disease 
management as a major issue for the HIV population and a challenge for 
the delivery of effective health care. Yet little is known about how 
the method of health services delivery (the ``model of care'') 
contributes to better health outcomes, including HIV-related outcomes. 
For example, does it make a difference if a patient receives HIV care 
from a primary care provider, a

specialist, or from a care team that includes both? Understanding the 
most effective models of care is 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 patients. These primary care and support services have a direct 
impact on HIV 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 achieve and sustain viral suppression 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 burden for 
RWHAP provider sites collecting this data and will increase the sample 
size for data analysis thus resulting in more robust data and greater 
generalizability of results.
    A 60-day Federal Register Notice was published in the Federal 
Register on May 18, 2017 (Volume 82, page 22838) which solicited 
comments on this data collection. Four comments were received that 
focused on how facilities will be selected for participation and the 
importance of adequate nutrition for PLWH.
    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 HIV/AIDS 
Program 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 
for a larger sample size from which to generalize conclusions, and 
reduce the overall burden of response on RWHAP providers and clients. 
The objectives of both studies will be achieved through collection of 
the following data:
     RWHAP client records abstraction--Medical chart and 
administrative records (e.g., service utilization and health outcomes 
data);
     RWHAP provider interviews--Site staff interviewees (in 
person);
     RWHAP client focus groups (Models of Care study sites 
only)--Clients at selected clinics that represent a given model of 
care;
     RWHAP client surveys (HIV Viral Suppression study sites 
only)--Clients with detectable and undetectable viral load at each 
clinic; and
     RWHAP client semi-structured interviews (HIV Viral 
Suppression study sites only)--Clients with detectable and undetectable 
viral load.
    These studies will build upon and complement HAB's study focusing 
on RWHAP outcomes within the context of the changing health care 
landscape; and will use the RWHAP site survey and chart abstraction 
instruments that were submitted as part of that study. The data will be 
collected by a HRSA contractor.
    Likely Respondents: RWHAP Administrators, RWHAP Service Providers, 
and RWHAP Clients.
    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 annual burden hours estimated for 
this ICR are summarized in the table below. Both research studies are 
included in the table, with burden proportional to the number of RWHAP 
provider sites from which each study will collect data: 25 distinct 
facilities for Assessing Client Factors Associated with Detectable HIV 
Viral Loads and 50 distinct facilities for Models of Care and the Ryan 
White HIV/AIDS Program. The table below provides the level of burden 
inclusive of both studies.
