Information Collection Request Title: Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients Information Collection Effort for Potential Donors for Living Organ Donation, OMB No. 0906–0034— Extension. Abstract: The Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) is administered under contract with HRSA, a sub agency of HHS. HHS is DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 authorized to establish and maintain mechanisms to evaluate the long-term effects associated with living organ donations (42 U.S.C. 273a) and is required to submit to Congress an annual report on the long-term health effects of living donation (42 U.S.C. 273b). In 2018, the SRTR contractor implemented a pilot living donor registry in which transplant programs registered all potential living organ donors who provide informed consent to participate in the pilot registry. The SRTR’s authority to collect information concerning potential living organ donors is set forth in the HHS organ procurement and transplantation network regulation, 42 CFR part 121, requiring organ procurement organizations and transplant hospitals to submit to the SRTR, as appropriate, information regarding ‘‘donors of organs’’ and ‘‘other information that the Secretary deems appropriate’’ (42 CFR 121.11(b)(2)). In 2018, an updated version of the data collection instrument was approved. The data collection modifications improve the quality of the data and reduce the administrative burden for respondents. A 60-day notice published in the Federal Register on September 8, 2020, vol. 85, No. 174; pp. 55464–65. There were no public comments. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The transplant programs submit health information collected at the time of donation evaluation through a secure web-based data collection tool developed by the contractor. The SRTR contractor maintains contact with registry participants and collects data on long-term health outcomes through surveys. The data collection includes outcomes of evaluation, including reasons for non-donation. The living donor registry is an ongoing effort, and the goal is to continue to collect data on living organ donor transplant programs in the United States over time. Monitoring and reporting of long-term health outcomes of living organ donors post-donation will continue to provide useful information to transplant programs in their future donor selection process and aid potential living organ donors in their decision to pursue living donation. There were minor revisions to the burden per response as it has decreased from the current amount due to improvements to the efficiency of the processes used by programs for data submission, as well as the tools provided for program use by SRTR.

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.

procurement organizations and transplant hospitals to submit to the 
SRTR, as appropriate, information regarding ``donors of organs'' and 
``other information that the Secretary deems appropriate'' (42 CFR 
121.11(b)(2)).
    In 2018, an updated version of the data collection instrument was 
approved. The data collection modifications improve the quality of the 
data and reduce the administrative burden for respondents.

    Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The transplant programs
