Download as PDF 56039 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 226 / Monday, November 27, 2017 / Notices RHND funded programs promote population health management and the transition towards value based care through diverse network membership that include traditional and nontraditional 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.

Information Collection Request Title: Client-Level Data Reporting System OMB No. 0906–XXXX—New. SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Abstract: The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program’s (RWHAP) client-level data reporting system, entitled the RWHAP Services Report or the Ryan White Services Report (RSR), is designed to collect information from grant recipients, as well as their subcontracted service providers, funded under Parts A, B, C, and D of the RWHAP legislation. The RWHAP, authorized under Title XXVI of the Public Health Service Act, as amended by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009, is administered by the HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) within the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). The RWHAP awards funding to recipients to respond effectively to the changing HIV epidemic, with an emphasis on providing life-saving and life-extending services for people living with HIV in the United States, as well as to target resources to areas that have the greatest needs. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: All Parts of the RWHAP specify HRSA’s responsibilities in administering grant funds, allocating funding, assessing HIV care outcomes (e.g., viral suppression) and populations served. The RSR will collect data on the characteristics of RWHAP-funded recipients, their contracted service providers, and the patients or clients served. The RSR system will consist of two online data forms, the Recipient E:\FR\FM\27NON1.SGM 27NON1 56040 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 226 / Monday, November 27, 2017 / Notices Report and the Service Provider Report, as well as a data file containing the client-level data elements. Data will be submitted annually. The RWHAP statute specifies the importance of recipient accountability and linking performance to budget. The RSR will be used to ensure recipient compliance with the law, including evaluating the effectiveness of programs, monitoring recipient and provider performance, and informing annual reports to Congress. Information collected through the RSR will be critical for HRSA, state and local grant recipients, and individual providers to assess the status of existing HIV-related service delivery systems, assess trends in service utilization, assess the impact of data reporting and identify areas of greatest need. This new ICR is being developed to replace the existing ICR (OMB control number 0915–0323), for which HRSA has collected RSR data since 2009. These revisions will account for significant modifications to several variables within the client report and XML file, which will improve data quality and align data collection efforts with recent Policy Clarification Notices (PCN 16–02). HRSA will continue to collect and report the client-level data elements supplied by the existing ICR through 2019. In 2019, the existing ICR will expire and HRSA will collect and report on the data elements defined in the new ICR. While there will be no overlap in the data collected and reported between the existing and new ICR, HRSA is submitting this new ICR in tandem with the existing ICR to allow recipients the ability to make modifications to their RSR systems between the two reporting periods, and continue to collect and report on both the old and new variables without interruption. Likely Respondents: RWHAP Part A, Part B, Part C, and Part D recipients and their contracted service providers. 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.

    Information Collection Request Title: Client-Level Data Reporting 
System OMB No. 0906-XXXX--New.
    Abstract: The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program's (RWHAP) client-level 
data reporting system, entitled the RWHAP Services Report or the Ryan 
White Services Report (RSR), is designed to collect information from 
grant recipients, as well as their subcontracted service providers, 
funded under Parts A, B, C, and D of the RWHAP legislation. The RWHAP, 
authorized under Title XXVI of the Public Health Service Act, as 
amended by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009, is 
administered by the HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) within the Health Resources 
and Services Administration (HRSA). The RWHAP awards funding to 
recipients to respond effectively to the changing HIV epidemic, with an 
emphasis on providing life-saving and life-extending services for 
people living with HIV in the United States, as well as to target 
resources to areas that have the greatest needs.
    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: All Parts of the RWHAP 
specify HRSA's responsibilities in administering grant funds, 
allocating funding, assessing HIV care outcomes (e.g., viral 
suppression) and populations served. The RSR will collect data on the 
characteristics of RWHAP-funded recipients, their contracted service 
providers, and the patients or clients served. The RSR system will 
consist of two online data forms, the Recipient

Report and the Service Provider Report, as well as a data file 
containing the client-level data elements. Data will be submitted 
annually. The RWHAP statute specifies the importance of recipient 
accountability and linking performance to budget. The RSR will be used 
to ensure recipient compliance with the law, including evaluating the 
effectiveness of programs, monitoring recipient and provider 
performance, and informing annual reports to Congress. Information 
collected through the RSR will be critical for HRSA, state and local 
grant recipients, and individual providers to assess the status of 
existing HIV-related service delivery systems, assess trends in service 
utilization, assess the impact of data reporting and identify areas of 
greatest need.
    This new ICR is being developed to replace the existing ICR (OMB 
control number 0915-0323), for which HRSA has collected RSR data since 
2009. These revisions will account for significant modifications to 
several variables within the client report and XML file, which will 
improve data quality and align data collection efforts with recent 
Policy Clarification Notices (PCN 16-02). HRSA will continue to collect 
and report the client-level data elements supplied by the existing ICR 
through 2019. In 2019, the existing ICR will expire and HRSA will 
collect and report on the data elements defined in the new ICR. While 
there will be no overlap in the data collected and reported between the 
existing and new ICR, HRSA is submitting this new ICR in tandem with 
the existing ICR to allow recipients the ability to make modifications 
to their RSR systems between the two reporting periods, and continue to 
collect and report on both the old and new variables without 
interruption.
    Likely Respondents: RWHAP Part A, Part B, Part C, and Part D 
recipients and their contracted service providers.
    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.
