SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Proposed Project ‘‘Safety Program in Perinatal Care (SPPC)-II Demonstration Project’’ The SPPC–II Demonstration Project has the following goals: (1) To implement the integrated AIM– SPPC II program in birthing hospitals in OK and TX in coordination with the Alliance for Innovation on Maternal Health program (AIM) and the respective state PQC (Perinatal Quality Collaborative); (2) To assess the implementation of the integrated AIM–SPPC II program in these hospitals; and (3) To ascertain the short- and medium-term impact of the integrated AIM–SPPC II program on hospital (i.e., perinatal unit) teamwork and communication, patient safety, and key maternal health outcomes. The information collected for this Demonstration Project will be used to evaluate the implementation and impact of the SPPC–II program overlaid with AIM patient safety bundles in birthing hospitals in OK and TX. More specifically, the project will: (a) Provide information on whether the proposed integration of AIM and SPPC–II programs can be implemented as intended, i.e., through the use of a two-tier approach for training all clinical staff in all hospitals, coordination by the AIM Team Lead of the rollout of training clinical staff using e-modules on teamwork and communication, facilitation by AIM Team Leads of in-person sessions to practice teamwork and communication tools and strategies; or, what changes are needed to better facilitate program implementation; (b) provide information regarding the impact of the integrated AIM–SPPC II program on use of teamwork and communication tools and strategies, teamwork and communication metrics, patient safety culture changes, AIM bundle implementation, and key maternal health outcomes; and (c) provide information regarding the sustainability of the integrated AIM– SPPC II program 18 months after implementation. Due to pandemic-related impacts on the SPPC–II study population, we propose updating the SPPC–II data collection by (1) adding questions to the approved qualitative interview guide at 3–4 months to include pandemic-related questions to better understand the implementation context, (2) adding an additional qualitative interview E:\FR\FM\24SEN1.SGM 24SEN1 60167 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 186 / Thursday, September 24, 2020 / Notices collection at 15–16 months with a new interview guide to better understand the implementation context, and (3) increasing the total number of qualitative interview participants from 25 to 30 participants to account for the two qualitative interview collections at 3–4 months and 15–16 months. The total estimated annual burden hours for SPPC–II will increase from 54,654 hours in the previous clearance to 54,659 hours in this clearance request, an increase of 5 hours. This study is being conducted by AHRQ through its contractor, Johns Hopkins University (JHU), and through JHU’s subcontractor, AIM, pursuant to AHRQ’s statutory authority to conduct and support research on healthcare and on systems for the delivery of such care, including activities with respect to the quality, effectiveness, efficiency, appropriateness and value of healthcare services and with respect to quality measurement and improvement. 42 U.S.C. 299a(a)(1) and (2). Method of Collection To achieve the goals of this project the following updates to the data collections will be implemented: (a) Qualitative, semi-structured interviews with AIM Team Leads will be conducted by phone about 3–4 months and 15–16 months after the SPPC–II implementation start date to assess the perceived utility of the training and assistance needed with the rollout of training to all frontline clinical staff using the e-modules and facilitation sessions to consolidate the information, and to better understand the implementation context (including barriers, facilitators, and strategies). An interview guide developed based on the Consolidated Framework for Implementation Research framework will be used to conduct the interviews, together with a corresponding consent form. Estimated Annual Respondent Burden Exhibit 1 shows only the estimated annualized burden hours for the respondents’ time to participate in updates to the information collection of the SPPC–II Demonstration Project.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Proposed Project

``Safety Program in Perinatal Care (SPPC)-II Demonstration Project''

    The SPPC-II Demonstration Project has the following goals:
    (1) To implement the integrated AIM-SPPC II program in birthing 
hospitals in OK and TX in coordination with the Alliance for Innovation 
on Maternal Health program (AIM) and the respective state PQC 
(Perinatal Quality Collaborative);
    (2) To assess the implementation of the integrated AIM-SPPC II 
program in these hospitals; and
    (3) To ascertain the short- and medium-term impact of the 
integrated AIM-SPPC II program on hospital (i.e., perinatal unit) 
teamwork and communication, patient safety, and key maternal health 
outcomes.
    The information collected for this Demonstration Project will be 
used to evaluate the implementation and impact of the SPPC-II program 
overlaid with AIM patient safety bundles in birthing hospitals in OK 
and TX. More specifically, the project will:
    (a) Provide information on whether the proposed integration of AIM 
and SPPC-II programs can be implemented as intended, i.e., through the 
use of a two-tier approach for training all clinical staff in all 
hospitals, coordination by the AIM Team Lead of the rollout of training 
clinical staff using e-modules on teamwork and communication, 
facilitation by AIM Team Leads of in-person sessions to practice 
teamwork and communication tools and strategies; or, what changes are 
needed to better facilitate program implementation;
    (b) provide information regarding the impact of the integrated AIM-
SPPC II program on use of teamwork and communication tools and 
strategies, teamwork and communication metrics, patient safety culture 
changes, AIM bundle implementation, and key maternal health outcomes; 
and
    (c) provide information regarding the sustainability of the 
integrated AIM-SPPC II program 18 months after implementation.
    Due to pandemic-related impacts on the SPPC-II study population, we 
propose updating the SPPC-II data collection by (1) adding questions to 
the approved qualitative interview guide at 3-4 months to include 
pandemic-related questions to better understand the implementation 
context, (2) adding an additional qualitative interview

[[Page 60167]]

collection at 15-16 months with a new interview guide to better 
understand the implementation context, and (3) increasing the total 
number of qualitative interview participants from 25 to 30 participants 
to account for the two qualitative interview collections at 3-4 months 
and 15-16 months. The total estimated annual burden hours for SPPC-II 
will increase from 54,654 hours in the previous clearance to 54,659 
hours in this clearance request, an increase of 5 hours.
    This study is being conducted by AHRQ through its contractor, Johns 
Hopkins University (JHU), and through JHU's subcontractor, AIM, 
pursuant to AHRQ's statutory authority to conduct and support research 
on healthcare and on systems for the delivery of such care, including 
activities with respect to the quality, effectiveness, efficiency, 
appropriateness and value of healthcare services and with respect to 
quality measurement and improvement. 42 U.S.C. 299a(a)(1) and (2).

Method of Collection

    To achieve the goals of this project the following updates to the 
data collections will be implemented:
    (a) Qualitative, semi-structured interviews with AIM Team Leads 
will be conducted by phone about 3-4 months and 15-16 months after the 
SPPC-II implementation start date to assess the perceived utility of 
the training and assistance needed with the rollout of training to all 
frontline clinical staff using the e-modules and facilitation sessions 
to consolidate the information, and to better understand the 
implementation context (including barriers, facilitators, and 
strategies). An interview guide developed based on the Consolidated 
Framework for Implementation Research framework will be used to conduct 
the interviews, together with a corresponding consent form.

Estimated Annual Respondent Burden

    Exhibit 1 shows only the estimated annualized burden hours for the 
respondents' time to participate in updates to the information 
collection of the SPPC-II Demonstration Project.
    One-hour qualitative interviews will be conducted with a total of

after the SPPC-II implementation start date.
    The total annual burden hours are estimated to be 54,659 hours, an 
increase of 5 hours from the previous clearance request.
