SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Information Collection Request Title: Office for the Advancement of Telehealth Outcome Measures, OMB No. 0915–0311—Revision. Abstract: In order to help carry out its mission, the Office for the Advancement of Telehealth (OAT) created a set of performance measures that grantees can use to evaluate the effectiveness of their services programs and monitor their progress through the use of performance reporting data. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: As required by the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993, all federal agencies must develop strategic plans describing their overall goal and objectives. OAT has worked with its grantees to develop performance measures used to evaluate and monitor the progress of the grantees. Grantee goals are to improve access to needed services, reduce rural practitioner isolation, improve health system productivity and efficiency, and improve patient outcomes. In each of these categories, specific indicators were designed to be reported through a performance monitoring website. New measures are being added to the Telehealth Network Grant Program and all measures speak to OAT’s progress toward meeting the goals, specifically telehealth services delivered through rural schools. Likely Respondents: Telehealth Network Grantees. 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: The Secretary’s Advisory Committee on Heritable Disorders in Newborns and amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:19 Jun 04, 2018 Jkt 241001 Children’s Public Health System Assessment Surveys OMB No. 0906– 0014—Revision. Abstract: The purpose of the public health system assessment surveys is to inform the Secretary’s Advisory Committee on Heritable Disorders in Newborns and Children (Committee) on states’ ability to add newborn screening for particular conditions, including the feasibility, readiness and overall capacity to screen for a new condition. The Committee was established under Section 1111 of the Public Health Service Act, 42 U.S.C. 300b-10, as amended in the Newborn Screening Saves Lives Reauthorization Act of 2014. The Committee is governed by the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act, as amended (5 U.S.C. App.), which sets forth standards for the formation and use of advisory committees. The purpose of the Committee is to provide the Secretary with recommendations, advice, and technical information regarding the most appropriate application of technologies, policies, guidelines, and standards for: (a) Effectively reducing morbidity and mortality in newborns and children having, or at risk for, heritable disorders; and (b) enhancing the ability of state and local health agencies to provide for newborn and child screening, counseling, and health care services for newborns and children having, or at risk for, heritable disorders. Specifically, the Committee makes systematic evidence-based recommendations on newborn screening for conditions that have the potential to change the health outcomes for newborns. The Committee tasks an external workgroup to conduct systematic evidence-based reviews for conditions being considered for addition to the Recommended Uniform Screening Panel, and their corresponding newborn screening test(s), confirmatory test(s), and treatment(s). Reviews also include an analysis of the benefits and harms of newborn screening for a selected condition at a population level and an assessment of state public health newborn screening programs’ ability to implement the screening of a new condition. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The surveys are administered by the Committee’s Evidence Review Group to collect data from state newborn screening programs PO 00000 Frm 00070 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 in the United States. The surveys have been developed to capture the following: (1) Readiness of state public health newborn screening programs to expand newborn screening to include the target condition; (2) specific requirements of screening for a condition that could hinder or facilitate implementation in each state; and (3) estimated timeframes needed for each state to complete major milestones toward full implementation of newborn screening for the condition. The data gathered informs the Committee on the following: (1) Feasibility of implementing populationbased screening for the target condition; (2) readiness of state newborn screening programs to adopt screening for the condition; (3) gaps or limitations related to the feasibility or readiness of states to screen for a condition; and (4) areas of technical assistance and resources needed to facilitate screening for conditions with low feasibility or readiness. HRSA anticipates the following revisions will be made to the surveys: (1) Editing and adding response choices as needed, to provide more informative options; (2) revising language throughout the survey to ensure the survey can accommodate different types of conditions that may be nominated; (3) reorder current questions as needed; and (4) add new questions as needed. Likely Respondents: The respondents to the survey will be state and territorial newborn screening programs. 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.
