To respond to the need for tools to assess patient safety culture in health care, AHRQ developed and pilot tested the Medical Office Survey on Patient Safety Culture with OMB approval (OMB NO.0935–0131; Approved July 5, 2007). The survey is designed to enable medical offices to assess provider and staff perspectives about patient safety issues, medical error, and error reporting. The survey includes 38 items that measure 10 composites of patient safety culture. In addition to the composite items, 14 items measure staff perceptions how often medical offices have problems exchanging information with other settings as well as other patient safety and quality issues. AHRQ made the survey publicly available along with a Survey User’s Guide and other toolkit materials in December 2008 on the AHRQ website. The AHRQ Medical Office SOPS Database consists of data from the AHRQ Medical Office Survey on Patient Safety Culture and may include reportable, non-required supplemental items. Medical offices in the U.S. can voluntarily submit data from the survey to AHRQ, through its contractor, Westat. E:\FR\FM\03MYN1.SGM 03MYN1 23370 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 83 / Monday, May 3, 2021 / Notices The Medical Office SOPS Database (OMB NO. 0935–0196, last approved on September 10, 2018) was developed by AHRQ in 2011 in response to requests from medical offices interested in tracking their own survey results. Those organizations submitting data receive a feedback report, as well as a report of the aggregated, de-identified findings of the other medical offices submitting data. These reports are used to assist medical office staff in their efforts to improve patient safety culture in their organizations. Rationale for the information collection. The Medical Office SOPS and the Medical Office SOPS Database support AHRQ’s goals of promoting improvements in the quality and safety of health care in medical office settings. The survey, toolkit materials, and database results are all made publicly available on AHRQ’s website. Technical assistance is provided by AHRQ through its contractor at no charge to medical offices, to facilitate the use of these materials for medical office patient safety and quality improvement. Request for information collection approval. AHRQ requests that OMB reapprove, under the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3521, AHRQ’s collection of information for the AHRQ Medical Office SOPS Database; OMB NO. 0935–0196, last approved on September 10, 2018. This database: (1) Presents results from medical offices that voluntarily submit their data, (2) Provides data to medical offices to facilitate internal assessment and learning in the patient safety improvement process, and (3) Provides supplemental information to help medical offices identify their strengths and areas with potential for improvement in patient safety culture. This study is being conducted by AHRQ through its contractor, Westat, 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; quality measurement and improvement; and database development. 42 U.S.C. 299a(a)(1), (2), and (8). Method of Collection To achieve the goal of this project the following activities and data collections will be implemented: (1) Eligibility and Registration Form— The medical office point-of-contact (POC) completes a number of data submission steps and forms, beginning with the completion of an online Eligibility and Registration Form. The purpose of this form is to collect basic demographic information about the medical office and initiate the registration process. (2) Data Use Agreement—The purpose of the data use agreement, completed by the medical office POC, is to state how data submitted by medical offices will be used and provides privacy assurances. (3) Medical Office Site Information Form—The purpose of the site information form also completed by the medical office POC, is to collect background characteristics of the medical office. This information will be used to analyze data collected with Medical Office SOPS survey. (4) Data Files Submission—POCs upload their data file(s), using the medical office data file specifications, to ensure that users submit standardized and consistent data in the way variables are named, coded, and formatted. The number of submissions to the database is likely to vary each year because medical offices do not administer the survey and submit data every year. Data submission is typically handled by one POC who is either an office manager or a survey vendor who contracts with a medical office to collect their data. POCs submit data on behalf of 20 medical offices, on average, because many medical offices are part of a health system that includes many medical office sites, or the POC is a vendor that is submitting data for multiple medical offices. Survey data from the AHRQ Medical Office Survey on Patient Safety Culture are used to produce three types of products: (1) A Medical Office SOPS Database Report that is made publicly available on the AHRQ website; and (2) Individual Medical Office Survey Feedback Reports that are customized for each medical office that submits data to the database; and (3) Research data sets of individuallevel and medical office-level deidentified data to enable researchers to conduct analyses. All data released in a data set are de-identified at the individual-level and the medical officelevel. Estimated Annual Respondent Burden Exhibit 1 shows the estimated annualized burden hours for the respondents’ time to participate in the database. An estimated 85 POCs, each representing an average of 20 individual medical offices each, will complete the database submission steps and forms. Each POC will submit the following: • Eligibility and registration form (completion is estimated to take about 3 minutes). • Data Use Agreement (completion is estimated to take about 3 minutes). • Medical Office Information Form (completion is estimated to take about 5 minutes). • Survey data submission will take an average of one hour. The total burden is estimated to be 341.5 hours. Exhibit 2 shows the estimated annualized cost burden based on the respondents’ time to submit their data. The cost burden is estimated to be $17,854 annually.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Proposed Project

Medical Office Survey on Patient Safety Culture Database

    In 1999, the Institute of Medicine called for health care 
organizations to develop a ``culture of safety'' such that their 
workforce and processes focus on improving the reliability and safety 
of care for patients (IOM, 1999; To Err is Human: Building a Safer 
Health System). To respond to the need for tools to assess patient 
safety culture in health care, AHRQ developed and pilot tested the 
Medical Office Survey on Patient Safety Culture with OMB approval (OMB 
NO.0935-0131; Approved July 5, 2007).
    The survey is designed to enable medical offices to assess provider 
and staff perspectives about patient safety issues, medical error, and 
error reporting. The survey includes 38 items that measure 10 
composites of patient safety culture. In addition to the composite 
items, 14 items measure staff perceptions how often medical offices 
have problems exchanging information with other settings as well as 
other patient safety and quality issues. AHRQ made the survey publicly 
available along with a Survey User's Guide and other toolkit materials 
in December 2008 on the AHRQ website.
    The AHRQ Medical Office SOPS Database consists of data from the 
AHRQ Medical Office Survey on Patient Safety Culture and may include 
reportable, non-required supplemental items. Medical offices in the 
U.S. can voluntarily submit data from the survey to AHRQ, through its 
contractor, Westat.

[[Page 23370]]

The Medical Office SOPS Database (OMB NO. 0935-0196, last approved on 
September 10, 2018) was developed by AHRQ in 2011 in response to 
requests from medical offices interested in tracking their own survey 
results. Those organizations submitting data receive a feedback report, 
as well as a report of the aggregated, de-identified findings of the 
other medical offices submitting data. These reports are used to assist 
medical office staff in their efforts to improve patient safety culture 
in their organizations.
    Rationale for the information collection. The Medical Office SOPS 
and the Medical Office SOPS Database support AHRQ's goals of promoting 
improvements in the quality and safety of health care in medical office 
settings. The survey, toolkit materials, and database results are all 
made publicly available on AHRQ's website. Technical assistance is 
provided by AHRQ through its contractor at no charge to medical 
offices, to facilitate the use of these materials for medical office 
patient safety and quality improvement.
    Request for information collection approval. AHRQ requests that OMB 
reapprove, under the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501-3521, 
AHRQ's collection of information for the AHRQ Medical Office SOPS 
Database; OMB NO. 0935-0196, last approved on September 10, 2018.
    This database:
    (1) Presents results from medical offices that voluntarily submit 
their data,
    (2) Provides data to medical offices to facilitate internal 
assessment and learning in the patient safety improvement process, and
    (3) Provides supplemental information to help medical offices 
identify their strengths and areas with potential for improvement in 
patient safety culture.
    This study is being conducted by AHRQ through its contractor, 
Westat, 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; quality 
measurement and improvement; and database development. 42 U.S.C. 
299a(a)(1), (2), and (8).

Method of Collection

    To achieve the goal of this project the following activities and 
data collections will be implemented:
    (1) Eligibility and Registration Form--The medical office point-of-
contact (POC) completes a number of data submission steps and forms, 
beginning with the completion of an online Eligibility and Registration 
Form. The purpose of this form is to collect basic demographic 
information about the medical office and initiate the registration 
process.
    (2) Data Use Agreement--The purpose of the data use agreement, 
completed by the medical office POC, is to state how data submitted by 
medical offices will be used and provides privacy assurances.
    (3) Medical Office Site Information Form--The purpose of the site 
information form also completed by the medical office POC, is to 
collect background characteristics of the medical office. This 
information will be used to analyze data collected with Medical Office 
SOPS survey.
    (4) Data Files Submission--POCs upload their data file(s), using 
the medical office data file specifications, to ensure that users 
submit standardized and consistent data in the way variables are named, 
coded, and formatted. The number of submissions to the database is 
likely to vary each year because medical offices do not administer the 
survey and submit data every year. Data submission is typically handled 
by one POC who is either an office manager or a survey vendor who 
contracts with a medical office to collect their data. POCs submit data 
on behalf of 20 medical offices, on average, because many medical 
offices are part of a health system that includes many medical office 
sites, or the POC is a vendor that is submitting data for multiple 
medical offices.
    Survey data from the AHRQ Medical Office Survey on Patient Safety 
Culture are used to produce three types of products:
    (1) A Medical Office SOPS Database Report that is made publicly 
available on the AHRQ website; and
    (2) Individual Medical Office Survey Feedback Reports that are 
customized for each medical office that submits data to the database; 
and
    (3) Research data sets of individual-level and medical office-level 
de-identified data to enable researchers to conduct analyses. All data 
released in a data set are de-identified at the individual-level and 
the medical office-level.

Estimated Annual Respondent Burden

    Exhibit 1 shows the estimated annualized burden hours for the 
respondents' time to participate in the database. An estimated 85 POCs, 
each representing an average of 20 individual medical offices each, 
will complete the database submission steps and forms. Each POC will 
submit the following:
     Eligibility and registration form (completion is estimated 
to take about 3 minutes).
     Data Use Agreement (completion is estimated to take about 
3 minutes).
     Medical Office Information Form (completion is estimated 
to take about 5 minutes).
     Survey data submission will take an average of one hour.
    The total burden is estimated to be 341.5 hours.
    Exhibit 2 shows the estimated annualized cost burden based on the 
respondents' time to submit their data. The cost burden is estimated to 
be $17,854 annually.
