    Abstract: More than just a job search portal, the goal of the 
Health Workforce Connector (HWC) is to help connect skilled 
professionals to communities in need by allowing approved Site Points 
of Contact (POCs), including National Health Service Corps (NHSC) and 
Nurse Corps, to post available opportunities and update site profiles. 
The HWC provides a central platform to connect participants, including 
those in both the NHSC and Nurse Corps programs, and facilities that 
are approved for performance of their NHSC or Nurse Corps service 
obligation. The HWC has become a resource that engages any health care 
professional or student interested in providing primary care services 
in underserved communities and with facilities in need of health care 
providers. The Health Workforce Connector also allows users to create a 
profile, search for NHSC and Nurse Corps sites, find job and training 
opportunities, search for other clinicians who are similarly interested 
in working with underserved populations, and be searchable by Site 
POCs. Individuals can use the Health Workforce Connector's search 
capability with Google Maps.
    The initial estimates of burden, as provided in the previous 
notice, were developed prior to the deployment of the HWC. Those 
estimates were accurate, as brand new users created accounts and 
published profiles. Because the HWC is now in a steady state, actual 
numbers from the last year allow for projections of comparable numbers 
for the upcoming year. A more recent data query yielded an estimated 
burden that is significantly lower due to the total number of users who 
are estimated to create accounts and publish profiles.
    A 60-day notice published in the Federal Register on August 12, 
2020, vol. 85, No. 156; pp. 48708-09. There was one public comment.
    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: Information will be 
collected from users in the following two ways:
    (1) Account Creation: Creating an account is optional, but to 
create an account the user will be required to enter their first name, 
last name, and email address. Those are the only mandatory fields in 
the profile account creation process and will be used to send an 
automated email allowing the user to validate their login credentials. 
This information will also be used to validate any users who already 
exist within the Bureau of Health Workforce Management Information 
Systems Solution (BMISS) database and allow an initial import of 
existing data at the request of the user.
    (2) Profile Completion: Users may fill out a profile, but this 
function will be completely optional and will include fields such as 
location, discipline, specialty, and languages spoken. The information 
collected, if `published' by the user, will allow internal BMISS Site 
POCs the ability to search for anyone who may be a potential candidate 
for health care job opportunities at the site. Users also have the 
ability to make their profiles searchable by other end users through a 
security and privacy setting and can make their profiles private at any 
time. All information collected will be stored within existing secure 
BMISS databases and will be used internally for report generation on an 
as-needed basis.
    Likely Respondents: Potential users will include individuals 
searching for a health care job opportunity or an NHSC or Nurse Corps 
health care facility, and health care facilities searching for 
potential candidates to fill open health care job opportunities at 
their sites.
    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.
    Total Estimated Annualized burden hours:

    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.
