We invite the general public and other Federal agencies to comment on proposed, and continuing information collections, which helps us assess the impact of our information collection requirements and minimize the public’s reporting burden. Public comments were previously requested via the Federal Register on November 19, 2020 during a 60-day comment period. This notice allows for an additional 30 days for public comments. Agency: U.S. Census Bureau. Title: Management and Organizational Practices Survey-Hospitals. OMB Control Number: 0607–XXXX. Form Number(s): MOPS–HP. Type of Request: Regular submission, New Information Collection Request. Number of Respondents: 3,200. Average Hours per Response: 45 minutes. Burden Hours: 2,400. Needs and Uses: The Census Bureau proposes conducting the Management and Organizational Practices SurveyHospitals (MOPS–HP) in order to PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 provide critical information on the health sector to our many stakeholders in support of our mission to serve as ‘‘the leading source of quality data about the nation’s people and economy.’’ The MOPS–HP will collect information on the use of structured management practices from Chief Nursing Officers (CNOs) at approximately 3,200 hospitals with the goal of producing four publicly available indices that measure key characteristics of these structured management practices. The proposed MOPS–HP will be collected for reference years 2020 and 2019. Content includes performance monitoring, goals, staff management, the use of standardized clinical protocols, and medical record documentation. Some questions are adapted from the Management and Organizational Practices Survey (MOPS) (OMB Approval Number 0607–0963), conducted in the manufacturing sector, allowing for inter-sectoral comparisons. The MOPS–HP will provide a deeper understanding of the business processes which impact an increasingly important sector of the economy; total national health expenditures represented almost 18 percent of U.S. gross domestic product in 2017 (National Center for Health Statistics). The MOPS–HP will provide a nationally representative sample, enabling stakeholders to understand the role of structured management practices in financial and clinical outcomes in U.S. hospitals. This understanding is of increasing importance with the COVID–19 pandemic, where the overwhelming number of hospitalizations at varying points has stretched staff and resources to capacity. In much the same way that the MOPS allowed for the measurement of the importance of these structured management practices for productivity and growth in the manufacturing sector, the MOPS–HP will inform our understanding of hospitals. Questions developed and tested for the MOPS–HP instrument are adapted from the 2015 MOPS and the 2009 World Management Survey’s (WMS) healthcare instrument. The Census Bureau conducted the MOPS in 2010 and 2015 with approximately 35,000 manufacturing plants to measure management practices. These data show that management practices are strongly correlated with plant profitability and productivity. The WMS has collected E:\FR\FM\01MRN1.SGM 01MRN1
