Information Collection Request Title: Membership Forms for Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network OMB No. 0915–0184–Revision Abstract: This is a request for OMB approval for revisions of the application documents used to collect information for determining if the interested party is compliant with membership requirements contained in the final rule Governing the Operation of the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN), (42 CFR part 121) ‘‘the OPTN final rule.’’ Need and Proposed Use of the Information: Membership in the OPTN is determined by submission of application materials to the OPTN (not to HRSA) demonstrating that the applicant meets all required criteria for membership and will agree to comply with all applicable provisions of the National Organ Transplant Act, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 273, et seq., the OPTN final rule, OPTN Policies, and OPTN Bylaws. Section 1138 of the Social Security Act, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 1320b–8 (section 1138) requires that hospitals in which transplants are performed be members of, and abide by, the rules and requirements of the OPTN (that have been approved by the Secretary of HHS) as a condition of participation in Medicare and Medicaid. Section 1138 contains a similar provision for the organ procurement organizations (OPOs) and makes membership in the OPTN and compliance with its rules and jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:34 Feb 12, 2020 Jkt 250001 requirements (that have been approved by the HHS Secretary), including those relating to data collection, mandatory for all transplant programs and OPOs. Proposed Revisions to OPTN Membership Applications: Changes to the forms are proposed to make application requirements more clear and organized, and thus less cumbersome for applicants to complete. Proposed revisions include changes to wording to make questions more consistent with the language of the OPTN Bylaws (Bylaws). In addition, the applications have been revised so that the sequence of questions is parallel to that of the Bylaws. Using the Bylaws as a baseline, the revamped applications have been constructed in parallel order of the Bylaws so that an applicant can have the application and Bylaws side-by-side for easy reference. Additional proposed changes to the application include: • A few major changes were made to the application order of documentation and attachments. The embedded transplant logs were revised in the form of a ‘universal’ surgeon and physician log that will be provided as a separate attachment to the application. This new log will provide applicants with all OPTN Bylaws requirements. We hope the added technology utilized in the log will help applicants complete the log with limited errors. • Also within the applications, ‘‘checkboxes’’—fillable tables that were not checkboxes at all—were removed and working checkboxes were inserted. The ‘‘narrative’’ section was replaced by checkbox attestations, which will serve the same purpose—understanding relevant and recent surgeon and physician applicant experience. • The previous membership applications had several places for the applicants to sign. The new application requests only one signature from each individual member applicant involved. • Additional changes to the application process include streamlining previous application attachments for key personnel and living donor components into one form for the respective organ application. • Pediatric Bylaw Requirements, where applicable, were also given their own sections within the organ applications. Conversely, the Certificate of Assessment (formerly known as Certificate of Investigation) and the Primary Coverage Plan Checklist were pulled out of the previous organ specific applications and given their own, separate attachment. These changes will allow OPTN application reviewers to give these application components to applicants in as few attachments as possible. These changes will also allow PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 8301 the United Network for Organ Sharing Membership Team to give these important application components to applicants in as few attachments as possible, but are inclusive of all possible changes within a program. • Further changes have been made to the Vascularized Composite Allograft (VCA) Transplant program applications, which were previously submitted as separate applications for OMB approval based on body part transplanted. These forms have been revised into one single application with sections for each VCA organ type. • Personnel changes for Organ Procurement Organizations (OPOs) and Histocompatibility Laboratories have also been consolidated into organization applications. OPO and Lab applicants will be able to use one respective application for new and/or personnel changes. • Given these changes, the overall burden has decreased significantly from an estimated 7,016 total burden hours to 4,755 hours in this current proposed revision package, although some forms have been combined into one more comprehensive form resulting in increased burden hours for a particular form. Likely Respondents: Parties seeking initial OPTN membership approval and then maintenance of existing OPTN approval. Applicants include the following: hospitals seeking to perform organ transplants, non-profit organizations seeking to become an organ procurement organization, and medical laboratories seeking to become an OPTN-approved histocompatibility laboratory. In addition, there are other OPTN membership categories for organizations and individuals who want to participate in the organ transplant system, and they are also required to fill out an appropriate application. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: When submitting comments or requesting 
information, please include the ICR title for reference.
    Information Collection Request Title: Membership Forms for Organ 
Procurement and Transplantation Network OMB No. 0915-0184-Revision
    Abstract: This is a request for OMB approval for revisions of the 
application documents used to collect information for determining if 
the interested party is compliant with membership requirements 
contained in the final rule Governing the Operation of the Organ 
Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN), (42 CFR part 121) ``the 
OPTN final rule.''
    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: Membership in the OPTN is 
determined by submission of application materials to the OPTN (not to 
HRSA) demonstrating that the applicant meets all required criteria for 
membership and will agree to comply with all applicable provisions of 
the National Organ Transplant Act, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 273, et seq., 
the OPTN final rule, OPTN Policies, and OPTN Bylaws. Section 1138 of 
the Social Security Act, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 1320b-8 (section 1138) 
requires that hospitals in which transplants are performed be members 
of, and abide by, the rules and requirements of the OPTN (that have 
been approved by the Secretary of HHS) as a condition of participation 
in Medicare and Medicaid. Section 1138 contains a similar provision for 
the organ procurement organizations (OPOs) and makes membership in the 
OPTN and compliance with its rules and requirements (that have been 
approved by the HHS Secretary), including those relating to data 
collection, mandatory for all transplant programs and OPOs.
    Proposed Revisions to OPTN Membership Applications: Changes to the 
forms are proposed to make application requirements more clear and 
organized, and thus less cumbersome for applicants to complete. 
Proposed revisions include changes to wording to make questions more 
consistent with the language of the OPTN Bylaws (Bylaws). In addition, 
the applications have been revised so that the sequence of questions is 
parallel to that of the Bylaws. Using the Bylaws as a baseline, the 
revamped applications have been constructed in parallel order of the 
Bylaws so that an applicant can have the application and Bylaws side-
by-side for easy reference. Additional proposed changes to the 
application include:
     A few major changes were made to the application order of 
documentation and attachments. The embedded transplant logs were 
revised in the form of a `universal' surgeon and physician log that 
will be provided as a separate attachment to the application. This new 
log will provide applicants with all OPTN Bylaws requirements. We hope 
the added technology utilized in the log will help applicants complete 
the log with limited errors.
     Also within the applications, ``checkboxes''--fillable 
tables that were not checkboxes at all--were removed and working 
checkboxes were inserted. The ``narrative'' section was replaced by 
checkbox attestations, which will serve the same purpose--understanding 
relevant and recent surgeon and physician applicant experience.
     The previous membership applications had several places 
for the applicants to sign. The new application requests only one 
signature from each individual member applicant involved.
     Additional changes to the application process include 
streamlining previous application attachments for key personnel and 
living donor components into one form for the respective organ 
application.
     Pediatric Bylaw Requirements, where applicable, were also 
given their own sections within the organ applications. Conversely, the 
Certificate of Assessment (formerly known as Certificate of 
Investigation) and the Primary Coverage Plan Checklist were pulled out 
of the previous organ specific applications and given their own, 
separate attachment. These changes will allow OPTN application 
reviewers to give these application components to applicants in as few 
attachments as possible. These changes will also allow the United 
Network for Organ Sharing Membership Team to give these important 
application components to applicants in as few attachments as possible, 
but are inclusive of all possible changes within a program.
     Further changes have been made to the Vascularized 
Composite Allograft (VCA) Transplant program applications, which were 
previously submitted as separate applications for OMB approval based on 
body part transplanted. These forms have been revised into one single 
application with sections for each VCA organ type.
     Personnel changes for Organ Procurement Organizations 
(OPOs) and Histocompatibility Laboratories have also been consolidated 
into organization applications. OPO and Lab applicants will be able to 
use one respective application for new and/or personnel changes.
     Given these changes, the overall burden has decreased 
significantly from an estimated 7,016 total burden hours to 4,755 hours 
in this current proposed revision package, although some forms have 
been combined into one more comprehensive form resulting in increased 
burden hours for a particular form.
    Likely Respondents: Parties seeking initial OPTN membership 
approval and then maintenance of existing OPTN approval. Applicants 
include the following: hospitals seeking to perform organ transplants, 
non-profit organizations seeking to become an organ procurement 
organization, and medical laboratories seeking to become an OPTN-
approved histocompatibility laboratory. In addition, there are other 
OPTN membership categories for organizations and individuals who want 
to participate in the organ transplant system, and they are also 
required to fill out an appropriate application.
    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.
