Information Collection Request Title: Quality Bonus System Initiative Response Form OMB No. 0906–xxxx [New]. Abstract: The Children’s Hospitals Graduate Medical Education (CHGME) Payment Program provides federal ADDRESSES: funds to the nation’s freestanding children’s hospitals to help them maintain their graduate medical education (GME) programs that train resident physicians and dentists. CHGME Support Reauthorization Act of 2013 states that the Secretary may establish a Quality Bonus System (QBS), whereby the Secretary distributes bonus payments to hospitals participating in the CHGME program that meet standards specified by the Secretary. In order to qualify for the QBS payment in Fiscal Year (FY) 2019, CHGME award recipients must submit documentation as an attachment in the FY 2019 reconciliation application released in April 2019, describing the hospital’s initiatives, resident curriculum, and direct resident involvement in the following areas: a. Integrated care models (e.g., integrated behavioral and mental health, care coordination across providers and settings); b. Telehealth and/or Health Information Technology; c. Population health; d. Social determinants of health; and e. Additional initiatives to improve access and quality of care to rural and/ or underserved communities. As specified in the CHGME statute, the QBS payment shall be remitted to qualified hospitals participating in the CHGME program that meet standards set forth by the Secretary of HHS. To demonstrate the fulfillment of such standards, it will be necessary for applicants to complete the QBS Response Initiative form and submit it as an attachment to the FY 2019 reconciliation application released in April of 2019. This form will be used to gather information relating to the hospitals’ engagement in quality initiatives. Likely Respondents: CHGME Program award 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.

SUMMARY: Fusion Glycoprotein Vaccine for Human Metapneumovirus Description of Technology: Human metapneumovirus (hMPV), a negative, single-stranded RNA virus, accounts for approximately 5–15% of infant respiratory tract infections and poses a severe risk of disease and hospitalization in both the elderly and the immunocompromised. Investigators at the Vaccine Research Center (VRC) of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) have generated an hMPV fusion glycoprotein (‘‘F protein’’) stabilized in a prefusion conformation. Stabilizing this prefusion conformation of the F protein reveals an immunodominant site which makes it an ideal vaccine immunogen. The E:\FR\FM\23OCN1.SGM 23OCN1
