Abstract: The Family-to-Family Health Information Center (F2F HIC) program is authorized by the Social Security Act, Title V, § 501(c) (42 U.S.C. 701(c)), as amended by the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (Pub. L. 114–10), § 216. The goal of the F2F HIC program is to promote optimal health for children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) by facilitating their access to an effective health delivery system and by meeting the health information and support needs of families of CYSHCN and the professionals who serve them. HRSA’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) funds 51 F2F HICs in each of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia. On average, these Centers provide information, education, technical assistance, and peer support to approximately 160,000 families of CYSHCN and approximately 68,000 health professionals each year. F2F HICs are staffed by families of CYSHCN who are uniquely positioned to provide such services, and by health professionals. F2F HIC staff also assist in ensuring families and health professionals are partners in decision making at all levels of care and service delivery. HRSA has developed feedback surveys to determine the extent to which F2F HICs provide service to PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 families of CYSHCN and health professionals who serve such families. Each F2F HIC will administer the surveys and report data back to HRSA. Survey respondents will be asked to answer questions about how useful they found the information, assistance, or resources received from the F2F HICs. The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments regarding the proposed feedback surveys. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: Data from the feedback surveys will support the HHS Secretary’s priorities of engagement and performance and will provide mechanisms to capture consistent performance data from F2F HIC grant recipients. The data will also allow F2F HICs to evaluate the effectiveness of their interventions and improve services provided to families and the providers who serve CYSHCN families. This notice is subject to the appropriation of funds, and is a contingency action taken to ensure that, should funds become available for this purpose, information collection can be completed in a timely manner. Likely Respondents: Likely respondents are users of F2F HIC services, which include family members of CYSHCN and health professionals who serve such families. 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; to process and to maintain, information; and to disclose and provide information; to train personnel 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.
