OMB No. 0906–0017—Revision. Abstract: This clearance request is for continued approval of the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) Program Performance Measurement Information System. The MIECHV Program, administered by HRSA in partnership with the Administration for Children and Families, supports voluntary, evidence-based home visiting services during pregnancy and to parents with young children up to kindergarten entry. States, certain non-profit organizations, and Tribal entities are eligible to receive funding from the MIECHV Program and have the flexibility to tailor the program to serve the specific needs of their communities. After taking into consideration public comments in response to the 60-day Notice published in the Federal Register on February 9, 2018 (83 FR 5791), HRSA is proposing final revisions to the data collection forms for the MIECHV Program by making the following changes: • Form 1: Update Tables 4–14, 16, and 18–20 to include specific guidance to account for and report missing data. • Form 1, Tables 1 and 2: Update table titles to reflect ‘‘participants served by MIECHV.’’ • Form 1, Table 5: Update to reflect correct age categories of ‘‘<1 year,’’ ‘‘1– 2 years,’’ ‘‘3–4 years,’’ ‘‘5–6 years,’’ and ‘‘Unknown/Did not Report.’’ • Form 1, Table 8: Revise the category of ‘‘Never Married’’ to read ‘‘Never Married (excluding not married but living together with partner).’’ • Form 1, Table 10: Delete. • Form 1, Table 18: Delete. • Form 1, Table 22: Revise to only include children greater than or equal to 12 months of age.

HRSA is also requesting an extension of this information collection request through November 30, 2021. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: HRSA uses performance information to demonstrate program accountability with legislative and programmatic requirements and continuously monitor and provide oversight to MIECHV Program awardees. The information is also used to provide quality improvement guidance and technical assistance to awardees and help inform the development of early childhood systems at the national, state, and local level. HRSA is seeking to revise demographic, service utilization, and select clinical indicators for participants enrolled in home visiting services. In addition, HRSA will collect a set of standardized performance and outcome indicators that correspond with the statutorily identified benchmark areas. In the future, HRSA anticipates that MIECHV funding decisions may be allocated, in part, based on awardee performance, including on benchmark performance areas. Likely Respondents: MIECHV Program awardees. 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 E:\FR\FM\05JNN1.SGM 05JNN1 26063 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 108 / Tuesday, June 5, 2018 / Notices a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.

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.
