OMB No.: New Collection. Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has launched a national multisite evaluation of Tribal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (TMIECHV) programs. MUSE is the first multi-site, multi-model study that will systematically explore how home visiting programs are operating across diverse tribal contexts and identify factors that lead to programs’ success. The evaluation will provide information that will help the federal government design and support federal home visiting initiatives in tribal communities and similar populations. Evaluation findings will also assist programs with improving home visiting services for children and families. The aims of MUSE are to (1) identify and describe the primary influences shaping tribal home visiting program planning; (2) identify and describe how home visiting programs are being implemented; and (3) explore supports to home visiting implementation in tribal communities. To address these aims, the evaluation will gather data about participating home visiting programs from program staff and parent program participants and utilize administrative program data. The current Notice is specific to data collection efforts needed to address the MUSE aims. Quantitative and qualitative data will be collected from program staff and parent program participants at each program site.

National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics: Meeting Health and Human Services (HHS) announces the following advisory committee meeting. Name: National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics (NCVHS), Standards Subcommittee Meeting. Date and Times: Monday, March 26, 2018: 9:00 a.m.–3:30 p.m. (EDT). Place: Virtual. Status: Open. There will be an open comment period during the final 15 minutes of the committee meeting. Purpose: Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) legislation from 1996, as amended,1 directed the Secretary of HHS to publish regulations adopting standards, code sets and identifiers to support the exchange of electronic health information between covered entities. The standards are for retail pharmacy and medical transactions. New versions of the adopted standards may be brought forward to NCVHS by the standards development organizations (SDOs) or through the Designated Standards Maintenance Organization (DSMO) after completion of a consensus based review and evaluation process. On January 9, 2018, the DSMO submitted a letter to NCVHS recommending the adoption of two National Council of Prescription Drug Program (NCPDP) updates to the adopted retail pharmacy standards. These updates include: (1) An update to the retail pharmacy standard, the NCPDP Telecommunication and Batch standard version D.0., which was adopted in 2009. The update would be NCPDP Telecommunication and Batch standard version F2, which would enable eligibility verification, claims, services, information reporting, prior authorization (for pharmacy), and predetermination of benefits; and (2) an update to the Medicaid subrogation standard, also adopted in 2009, to expand subrogation to all payers, including Medicare Parts C and D. The updated subrogation standard is the Batch Standard version 10, and replaces Pursuant to the Federal Advisory Committee Act, the Department of 1 along with Section 1104 (c) of the Affordable Care Act. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 4,452. In compliance with the requirements of Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the Administration for Children and Families is soliciting public comment on the specific aspects of the information collection described above. Copies of the proposed collection of information can be obtained and comments may be forwarded by writing to the Administration for Children and Families, Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation, 330 C Street SW, Washington, DC 20201, Attn: OPRE Reports Clearance Officer. Email address: OPREinfocollection@ acf.hhs.gov. All requests should be identified by the title of the information collection. The Department specifically requests comments on (a) whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Consideration will be given to comments and suggestions submitted within 60 days of this publication. Mary Jones, ACF/OPRE Certifying Officer.

It will enable all payers to conduct a uniform process to support compliance with requirements for recovery of federal, state and other plan overpayments, mitigating manual processes currently in place. The purpose of this NCVHS Standards Subcommittee hearing is to obtain input from stakeholders for the costs and benefits of implementing the updated versions of the two pharmacy standards: NCPDP F2 and pharmacy subrogation, and to understand how they would reduce existing barriers to the use of standards, or mitigate burdens.

    Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) 
within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has launched a 
national multi-site evaluation of Tribal Maternal, Infant, and Early 
Childhood Home Visiting (TMIECHV) programs. MUSE is the first multi-
site, multi-model study that will systematically explore how home 
visiting programs are operating across diverse tribal contexts and 
identify factors that lead to programs' success. The evaluation will 
provide information that will help the federal government design and 
support federal home visiting initiatives in tribal communities and 
similar populations. Evaluation findings will also assist programs with 
improving home visiting services for children and families. The aims of 
MUSE are to (1) identify and describe the primary influences shaping 
tribal home visiting program planning; (2) identify and describe how 
home visiting programs are being implemented; and (3) explore supports 
to home visiting implementation in tribal communities. To address these 
aims, the evaluation will gather data about participating home visiting 
programs from program staff and parent program participants and utilize 
administrative program data.
    The current Notice is specific to data collection efforts needed to 
address the MUSE aims. Quantitative and qualitative data will be 
collected from program staff and parent program participants at each 
program site. Program sites will also submit local administrative data

program participants at enrollment (baseline), (2) a follow-up survey 
of parent program participants at 6 and 12 months, (3) the MUSE Family 
Resources Check-in administered to parent program participants at 
baseline and 12 months (4) a Rapid Reflect self-completed questionnaire 
completed by parent program participants after selected home visits; 
(5) a Rapid Reflect self-completed questionnaire completed by home 
visitors after selected home visits; (6) a one-time survey of home 
visitors; (7) a one-time survey of program coordinators/managers; (8) a 
one-time survey of program directors; (9) a one-time survey of local 
program evaluators; (10) qualitative interviews of home visitors at 
each site; (11) qualitative interviews of program coordinators/managers 
and program directors at each site; (12) qualitative interviews of 
local program evaluators at each site; (13) qualitative interviews of 
program participants; (14) a log of implementation activities completed 
by program coordinators/managers on staffing, training, family group 
activities, and supervision; and (15) electronic compilation and 
submission of administrative program data.
    All data collection will be used to generate information about how 
tribal home visiting program services are planned and delivered, and 
about what individual, organizational, community, and external factors 
support successful program implementation.
    Respondents: Parent participants enrolled in TMIECHV programs and 
TMIECHV program staff (program directors, program coordinators/
