SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: When submitting comments or requesting information, please include the information request collection title for reference. Information Collection Request Title: The Stem Cell Therapeutic Outcomes Database OMB No. 0915–0310, Revision. Abstract: The Stem Cell Therapeutic and Research Act of 2005, Public Law (Pub. L.) 109–129, as amended by the Stem Cell Therapeutic and Research Reauthorization Act of 2015, Public Law 114–104 (the Act), provides for the collection and maintenance of human blood stem cells for the treatment of patients and research. The Act requires the Secretary to contract for the establishment and maintenance of information related to patients who have received stem cell therapeutic products and to do so using a standardized, electronic format. HRSA’s Healthcare Systems Bureau has established the Stem Cell Therapeutic Outcomes Database, which necessitates certain electronic record keeping and reporting requirements to perform the functions related to hematopoietic stem cell transplantation under contract to HHS. Data is collected from transplant centers by the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research and is used for ongoing analysis of transplant outcomes. Over time, there is an expected increase in the number of recipients for whom data are reported as the increasing number of transplants are performed annually and survivorship after transplantation improves. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: Per statutory responsibilities, information collected on the forms outlined in the ‘‘Total Estimated Annualized Burden Hours’’ section below is needed to monitor the clinical status of transplantation and provide the Secretary with an annual report of transplant center-specific survival data. The proposed revisions of these data collection forms fall into several categories: Consolidating questions and removing duplicate questions across the forms, implementing ‘‘check all that apply’’ formatting to reduce data entry time, and removing items no longer clinically significant (e.g., drugs). These proposed revisions are not anticipated to affect total burden hours. Likely Respondents: Transplant Centers. 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.

HRSA specifically requests comments on (1) the necessity and utility of the proposed information collection for the proper performance of the agency’s functions, (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden, (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected, and (4) the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology to minimize the information collection burden. amozie on DSK9F9SC42PROD with NOTICES Number of responses per respondent Amy P.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: When submitting comments or requesting information, please include the SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 information request collection title for reference. Information Collection Request Title: Black Lung Clinics Program Performance Measures, OMB No. 0915– 0292—Extension. Abstract: HRSA’s Federal Office of Rural Health Policy conducts an annual data collection of user information for the Black Lung Clinics Program, which has been ongoing with OMB approval since 2004. The purpose of the Black Lung Clinics Program is to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with occupationally-related coal mine dust lung disease through the screening, diagnosis, and treatment of active, inactive, retired, and/or disabled coal miners. Collecting this data provides HRSA with information on how well each grantee is meeting the needs of these miners in their communities. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: Data from the annual report provides quantitative information about the clinics, specifically: (a) The characteristics of the patients they serve (gender, age, disability level, and occupation type); (b) the characteristics of services provided (medical encounters, non-medical encounters, benefits counseling, and outreach); and (c) the number of patients served. This assessment enables HRSA to provide data required by Congress under the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993. It also ensures that funds are effectively used to provide services that meet the target population needs. HRSA does not plan to make any changes to the performance measures at this time. Likely Respondents: Black Lung Clinics Program 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. The total annual burden hours estimated for this ICR are summarized in the table below. E:\FR\FM\07MRN1.SGM 07MRN1
