VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:53 Jul 23, 2019 Jkt 247001 Notice. In compliance with the requirement for opportunity for public comment on proposed data collection projects of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, HRSA announces plans to submit an Information Collection Request (ICR), described below, to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Prior to submitting the ICR to OMB, HRSA seeks comments from the public regarding the burden estimate, below, or any other aspect of the ICR. DATES: Comments on this ICR should be received no later than September 23, 2019. SUMMARY: Submit your comments to paperwork@hrsa.gov or mail the HRSA Information Collection Clearance Officer, Room 14N136B, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, Maryland 20857. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: To request more information on the proposed project or to obtain a copy of the data collection plans and draft instruments, email paperwork@hrsa.gov or call Lisa Wright-Solomon, HRSA Information Collection Clearance Officer at (301) 443–1984. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: When submitting comments or requesting information, please include the information request collection title for reference. Information Collection Request Title: Health Center Patient Survey, OMB No. 0915–0368—Reinstatement Abstract: The Health Center Program, administered by HRSA, is authorized under section 330 of the Public Health Service Act, most recently amended by section 50901(b) of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, Public Law 115– 123. Health centers are communitybased and patient-directed organizations that deliver affordable, accessible, quality, and cost-effective primary health care services to patients regardless of their ability to pay. Nearly 1,400 health centers operate approximately 12,000 service delivery sites that provide primary health care to more than 27 million people in every U.S. state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Pacific Basin. In the past, HRSA has conducted the Health Center Patient Survey (HCPS), which surveys patients of HRSA-supported health centers. The HCPS collects information about sociodemographic characteristics, health conditions, health behaviors, access to and utilization of health care ADDRESSES: The consequences of not paying these fees are outlined in Section J of ‘‘FDA’s Voluntary Qualified Importer Program; Guidance for Industry’’ document (available at https://www.fda.gov/ media/92196/download). If the user fee is not paid before October 1, a VQIP importer will not be eligible to participate in VQIP. For the first year a VQIP application is approved, if the user fee is not paid before October 1, 2019, you are not eligible to participate in VQIP. If you subsequently pay the user fee, FDA will begin your benefits after we receive the full payment. The user fee may not be paid after December 31, 2019. For a subsequent year, if you do not pay the user fee before October 1, FDA will send a Notice of Intent to Revoke your participation in VQIP. If you do not pay the user fee within 30 days of the date of the Notice of Intent to Revoke, we will revoke your participation in VQIP. AGENCY: ACTION: PO 00000 Frm 00096 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 35683 services, and satisfaction with health care received at HRSA-supported health centers. The reinstatement of the HCPS will utilize the same modules from the 2014 HCPS (OMB #0915–0368). Overarching improvements to the survey instrument will streamline the questionnaire to minimize burden and standardize questions with other national surveys to enable comparative analyses with a particular focus on HHS and HRSA priority areas (e.g., mental health and substance use). Survey results come from in-person, one-on-one interviews with patients who are selected as nationally representative of the Health Center Program patient population. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The HCPS is unique because it focuses on comprehensive, nationally representative, individual level data from the perspective of health center patients. By investigating how well HRSA-supported health centers meet health care needs of the medically underserved and how patients perceive their quality of care, the HCPS serves as an empirically based resource to inform HRSA policy, funding, and planning decisions. Likely Respondents: Patients at HRSA-supported health 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. Compared to the previous HCPS, the estimated burden hours for an individual respondent remain the same in this reinstatement. However, the total annual burden hours and number of survey respondents is anticipated to increase in order to reflect the growing number of patients served by the Health Center Program. The total annual burden hours estimated for this ICR are summarized in the table below.

    Information Collection Request Title: Health Center Patient Survey, 
OMB No. 0915-0368--Reinstatement
    Abstract: The Health Center Program, administered by HRSA, is 
authorized under section 330 of the Public Health Service Act, most 
recently amended by section 50901(b) of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 
2018, Public Law 115-123. Health centers are community-based and 
patient-directed organizations that deliver affordable, accessible, 
quality, and cost-effective primary health care services to patients 
regardless of their ability to pay. Nearly 1,400 health centers operate 
approximately 12,000 service delivery sites that provide primary health 
care to more than 27 million people in every U.S. state, the District 
of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Pacific 
Basin. In the past, HRSA has conducted the Health Center Patient Survey 
(HCPS), which surveys patients of HRSA-supported health centers. The 
HCPS collects information about sociodemographic characteristics, 
health conditions, health behaviors, access to and utilization of 
health care services, and satisfaction with health care received at 
HRSA-supported health centers. The reinstatement of the HCPS will 
utilize the same modules from the 2014 HCPS (OMB #0915-0368). 
Overarching improvements to the survey instrument will streamline the 
questionnaire to minimize burden and standardize questions with other 
national surveys to enable comparative analyses with a particular focus 
on HHS and HRSA priority areas (e.g., mental health and substance use). 
Survey results come from in-person, one-on-one interviews with patients 
who are selected as nationally representative of the Health Center 
Program patient population.
    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The HCPS is unique 
because it focuses on comprehensive, nationally representative, 
individual level data from the perspective of health center patients. 
By investigating how well HRSA-supported health centers meet health 
care needs of the medically underserved and how patients perceive their 
quality of care, the HCPS serves as an empirically based resource to

    Likely Respondents: Patients at HRSA-supported health 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

a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and 
review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise

reinstatement. However, the total annual burden hours and number of 
survey respondents is anticipated to increase in order to reflect the 
growing number of patients served by the Health Center Program. The 
total annual burden hours estimated for this ICR are summarized in the
