Proposed Data Collection Submitted for Public Comment and Recommendations, 56027-56028 [2017-25496]

Download as PDF 56027 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 226 / Monday, November 27, 2017 / Notices authorized CDC-recognized organizations to prepare for enrollment as MDPP suppliers in order to bill CMS for these services beginning in 2018; only organizations in good standing with the CDC DPRP are eligible as MDPP suppliers. CDC anticipates an additional 500 organizations per year will apply for recognition. Previously, in 2011, CDC received OMB approval to collect organizational and de-identified participant information needed to administer the DPRP (OMB No. 0920–0909, expired 11/30/2014). In 2015, CDC renewed these Standards for three years (OMB No. 0920–0909, expires 12/31/2017) to continue collecting information needed to manage the DPRP. Virtual organizations were added in the 2015 Standards based on new published evidence and to reach a broader audience. Two levels of CDC recognition have been provided: Pending recognition for new applicants that have submitted an application and meet eligibility criteria defined by the Standards, and Full recognition for programs that have demonstrated effectiveness according to the Standards. CMS allows for a new recognition status, Preliminary, in addition to Pending and Full. MDPP reimbursement is directly tied to Preliminary and Full statuses. The intent of this current Standards’ revision is to align with the CMS MDPP that will be finalized in 2017 and is scheduled to go in effect January 1, 2018, and to account for new evidence in the type 2 diabetes prevention literature. The MDPP benefit will scale type 2 diabetes prevention programs more broadly.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), Federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. In addition, the PRA also requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each new proposed collection, each proposed extension of existing collection of information, and each reinstatement of previously approved information collection before submitting the collection to the OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, we are publishing this notice of a proposed data collection as described below. The OMB is particularly interested in comments that will help: 1. Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; 2. Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; 3.

Background and Brief Description Section 306 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act (42 U.S.C. 242k), as amended, authorizes that the Secretary of Health and Human Services (DHHS), acting through NCHS, shall collect statistics on ‘‘utilization of health care’’ in the United States. The National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NHAMCS) has conducted annually since 1992. NCHS is seeking determining health care work force needs, and assessing the health status of the population. Starting 2018, CDC will implement the ED component of NHAMCS. However, between December 2017 and May 2018, the 2017 survey will run concurrently with the 2018 survey. This is typical with any data collection cycle: It begin in the last month of the preceding year and ends around the middle of the following year. For the 2017 data collection, CDC will collect information on all three settings (ED, OPD, and ASL). For this three-year request, CDC does not expect substantive changes or supplements for the survey. Users of NHAMCS data include, but are not limited to, congressional offices, Federal agencies, state and local governments, schools of public health, colleges and Universities, private industry, nonprofit foundations, professional associations, clinicians, researchers, administrators, and health planners. There are no costs to the respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 1,806. OMB approval to extend this survey for an additional three years. The target universe of the NHAMCS is in-person visits made to emergency departments (EDs) of non-Federal, shortstay hospitals (hospitals with an average length of stay of less than 30 days) that have at least six beds for inpatient use, and with a specialty of general (medical or surgical) or children’s general. NHAMCS was initiated to complement the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS, OMB Control Number 0920–0234, Expiration Date 03/31/2019), which provides similar data concerning patient visits to physicians’ offices. NAMCS and NHAMCS are the principal sources of data on ambulatory care provided in the United States. NHAMCS provides a range of baseline data on the characteristics of the users and providers of hospital ambulatory medical care. Data collected include patients’ demographic characteristics, reason(s) for visit, providers’ diagnoses, diagnostic services, medications, and disposition.

Control Number 0920-0278, Expiration Date 02/28/2018)--Revision--
National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), Centers for Disease 
Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    Section 306 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act (42 U.S.C. 
242k), as amended, authorizes that the Secretary of Health and Human 
Services (DHHS), acting through NCHS, shall collect statistics on

additional three years.
    The target universe of the NHAMCS is in-person visits made to 
emergency departments (EDs) of non-Federal, short-stay hospitals 
(hospitals with an average length of stay of less than 30 days) that 
have at least six beds for inpatient use, and with a specialty of 
general (medical or surgical) or children's general.
    NHAMCS was initiated to complement the National Ambulatory Medical 
Care Survey (NAMCS, OMB Control Number 0920-0234, Expiration Date 03/
31/2019), which provides similar data concerning patient visits to 
physicians' offices. NAMCS and NHAMCS are the principal sources of data 
on ambulatory care provided in the United States.
    NHAMCS provides a range of baseline data on the characteristics of 
the users and providers of hospital ambulatory medical care. Data 
collected include patients' demographic characteristics, reason(s) for 
visit, providers' diagnoses, diagnostic services, medications, and 
disposition. These data, together with trend data, may be used to 
monitor the effects of change in the health care system, for the

    There are no costs to the respondents other than their time. The
