Download as PDF 56038 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 226 / Monday, November 27, 2017 / Notices health care services in rural communities; (2) deliver health care services through a strong consortium, in which every consortium member organization is actively involved and engaged in the planning and delivery of services; (3) utilize and/or adapt an evidence-based or promising practice model(s) in the delivery of health care services; and (4) improve population health, demonstrate health outcomes and sustainability. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The PIMS measures for the Outreach Program enable HRSA and the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy to capture awardee-level and aggregate data that illustrate the impact and scope of federal funding. The collection of this information helps further inform and substantiate the focus and objectives of the grant program. The measures encompass the following topics: (a) Access to care; (b) population demographics; (c) consortium/network; (d) sustainability; and (f) project specific domains. There are proposed revisions to the currently approved Outreach Program PIMS measures. The proposed Outreach PIMS measures reflect a reduced number of measures including the following: 16 process measures applicable to all awardees (previously 22), consolidation of the project-specific measures (currently 7, previously 8), and 8 clinical measures (previously 9). In addition, the proposed measures include the addition of two Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) calculators: The CDC Heart Age calculator and the CDC BMI Percentile Calculator for Child and Teen. Data for both calculators will be collected on an aggregate level and only from awardees with applicable projects; the CDC Heart Age calculator is specific to awardees participating in the Health Improvement Special Project while the CDC BMI calculator is for projects focusing on childhood obesity. Number of respondents Form name Number of responses per respondent Likely Respondents: The respondents are award recipients of the Rural Health Care Services Outreach Program. 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.

    Abstract: The purpose of the Rural Health Network Development 
(RHND) program is to support mature, integrated rural health care 
networks that have combined the functions of the entities participating

    RHND funded programs promote population health management and the 
transition towards value based care through diverse network membership 
that include traditional and non-traditional network partners 
collaborating to address the local healthcare needs of the targeted 
community. Evidence of program effectiveness demonstrated by outcome 
data and program sustainability are integral components of the program. 
This is a three-year competitive program for mature networks composed 
of at least three members that are separate, existing health care 
providers entities.
    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: For this program, 
performance measures provide data to program staff and enable HRSA to 
provide aggregate program data. These measures cover the principal 
topic areas of interest to the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy, 
including: (a) Network infrastructure; (b) sustainability; (c) 
community impact; and (d) access and quality of healthcare.
    For this revised ICR, there are proposed changes to several 
measures that include network infrastructure, sustainability, community 
impact, and access and quality of healthcare.
    Likely Respondents: The respondents are the RHND Program grant 
recipients.
    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.
