SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: When submitting comments or requesting information, please include the ICR title for reference. Information Collection Request Title: Rural Health Network Development Planning Performance Improvement and Measurement System Database, OMB No. 0915–0384—Extension. Abstract: The purpose of the Rural Health Network Development Planning (Network Planning) Program is to assist in the development of an integrated health care network specifically for entities that do not have a history of formal collaborative efforts. Health care networks can be an effective strategy to help smaller rural health care providers and health care service organizations align resources, achieve economies of scale and efficiency, and address challenges more effectively as a group than as single providers. This program promotes the planning and development of healthcare networks in order to achieve efficiencies; expand access to, coordinate, and improve the quality of essential health care services; and strengthen the rural health care system as a whole. The goals of the Network Planning Program are centered around approaches that will aid providers in better serving their communities given the changes taking place in health care, as providers move from focusing on the volume of services to focusing on the value of services. In addition to establishing and improving local capacity and coordination of care, the Network Planning Program brings together key parts of a rural health care delivery system, particularly those entities that may not have collaborated in the past under a formal relationship. The program supports one year of planning with the primary goals of helping networks create a foundation for their infrastructure and focusing member efforts to address important regional or local community health needs. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: Performance measures for the Network Planning Program serve the purpose of quantifying awardee-level data that conveys the successes and challenges associated with the grant award. These measures and aggregate data substantiate and inform the focus and objectives of the grant program. The approved measures encompass the following principal topic areas: Network infrastructure, network collaboration, sustainability, and network assessment. Likely Respondents: Rural Health Network Development Planning 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.
