SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\23JNN1.SGM 23JNN1 32932 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 118 / Wednesday, June 23, 2021 / Notices SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Proposed Project Nursing Home 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 Nursing Home Survey on Patient Safety Culture with OMB approval (OMB NO. 0935–0132; Approved July 5, 2007). The survey is designed to enable nursing homes to assess provider and staff perspectives about patient safety issues, medical error, and error reporting and includes 42 items that measure 12 composites of patient safety culture. AHRQ made the survey publicly available along with a Survey User’s Guide and other toolkit materials in November 2008 on the AHRQ website. The AHRQ Nursing Home SOPS Database consists of data from the AHRQ Nursing Home Survey on Patient Safety Culture. Nursing homes in the U.S. can voluntarily submit data from the survey to AHRQ through its contractor, Westat. The Nursing Home SOPS Database (OMB NO. 0935–0195, last approved on November 5, 2018) was developed by AHRQ in 2011 in response to requests from nursing homes interested in viewing their organizations’ patient safety culture survey results. Those organizations submitting data receive a feedback report, as well as a report on the aggregated de-identified findings of the other nursing homes submitting data. These reports are used to assist nursing home staff in their efforts to improve patient safety culture in their organizations. Rationale for the information collection. The Nursing Home SOPS and Nursing Home SOPS Database support AHRQ’s goals of promoting improvements in the quality and safety of health care in nursing home 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 nursing homes, to facilitate the use of these materials for nursing home patient safety and quality improvement. This database: (1) Presents results from nursing homes that voluntarily submit their data, (2) Provides data to nursing homes to facilitate internal assessment and learning in the patient safety improvement process, and (3) Provides supplemental information to help nursing homes 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 health care 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 surveys and database development. 42 U.S.C 299a(a)(1) 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 nursing home (or parent organization) 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 nursing home and initiate the registration process. (2) Data Use Agreement—The purpose of the data use agreement, completed by the nursing home POC, is to state how data submitted by nursing homes will be used and provides privacy assurances. (3) Nursing Home Site Information Form—The purpose of the site information form, completed by the nursing home POC, is to collect background characteristics of the nursing home. This information will be used to analyze data collected with the Nursing Home SOPS survey. (4) Data File(s) Submission—POCs upload their data file(s) using the 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 nursing homes do not administer the survey and submit data every year. Data submission is typically handled by one POC who is either a corporate level health care manager for a Quality Improvement Organization (QIO), a survey vendor who contracts with a nursing home to collect their data, or a nursing home Director of Nursing or nurse manager. POCs submit data on behalf of 3 nursing homes, on average, because many nursing homes are part of a QIO or larger nursing home or health system that includes many nursing home sites, or the POC is a vendor that is submitting data for multiple nursing homes. Estimated Annual Respondent Burden Exhibit 1 shows the estimated annualized burden hours for the respondents’ time to participate in the database. An estimated 40 POCs, each representing an average of 3 individual nursing homes 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). • Nursing Home Site Information Form (completion is estimated to take about 5 minutes). • Survey data submission will take an average of one hour. The total annual burden hours are estimated to be 54 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 $2,509 annually.

Request for Comments In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3520, comments on AHRQ’s information collection are requested with regard to any of the following: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of AHRQ’s health care research and health care information dissemination functions, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of AHRQ’s estimate of burden (including hours and costs) of the proposed collection(s) of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information upon the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and included in the Agency’s subsequent request for OMB approval of the proposed information collection. All comments will become a matter of public record. Dated: June 16, 2021.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Proposed Project

Nursing Home 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 
Nursing Home Survey on Patient Safety Culture with OMB approval (OMB 
NO. 0935-0132; Approved July 5, 2007).
    The survey is designed to enable nursing homes to assess provider 
and staff perspectives about patient safety issues, medical error, and 
error reporting and includes 42 items that measure 12 composites of 
patient safety culture. AHRQ made the survey publicly available along 
with a Survey User's Guide and other toolkit materials in November 2008 
on the AHRQ website.
    The AHRQ Nursing Home SOPS Database consists of data from the AHRQ 
Nursing Home Survey on Patient Safety Culture. Nursing homes in the 
U.S. can voluntarily submit data from the survey to AHRQ through its 
contractor, Westat. The Nursing Home SOPS Database (OMB NO. 0935-0195, 
last approved on November 5, 2018) was developed by AHRQ in 2011 in 
response to requests from nursing homes interested in viewing their 
organizations' patient safety culture survey results. Those 
organizations submitting data receive a feedback report, as well as a 
report on the aggregated de-identified findings of the other nursing 
homes submitting data. These reports are used to assist nursing home 
staff in their efforts to improve patient safety culture in their 
organizations.
    Rationale for the information collection. The Nursing Home SOPS and 
Nursing Home SOPS Database support AHRQ's goals of promoting 
improvements in the quality and safety of health care in nursing home 
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 nursing homes, 
to facilitate the use of these materials for nursing home patient 
safety and quality improvement.
    This database:
    (1) Presents results from nursing homes that voluntarily submit 
their data,
    (2) Provides data to nursing homes to facilitate internal 
assessment and learning in the patient safety improvement process, and
    (3) Provides supplemental information to help nursing homes 
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 health care 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 surveys and database development. 42 U.S.C 299a(a)(1) 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 nursing home (or parent 
organization) 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 nursing home and 
initiate the registration process.
    (2) Data Use Agreement--The purpose of the data use agreement, 
completed by the nursing home POC, is to state how data submitted by 
nursing homes will be used and provides privacy assurances.
    (3) Nursing Home Site Information Form--The purpose of the site 
information form, completed by the nursing home POC, is to collect 
background characteristics of the nursing home. This information will 
be used to analyze data collected with the Nursing Home SOPS survey.
    (4) Data File(s) Submission--POCs upload their data file(s) using 
the 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 nursing homes do not administer the survey and submit 
data every year. Data submission is typically handled by one POC who is 
either a corporate level health care manager for a Quality Improvement 
Organization (QIO), a survey vendor who contracts with a nursing home 
to collect their data, or a nursing home Director of Nursing or nurse 
manager. POCs submit data on behalf of 3 nursing homes, on average, 
because many nursing homes are part of a QIO or larger nursing home or 
health system that includes many nursing home sites, or the POC is a 
vendor that is submitting data for multiple nursing homes.

Estimated Annual Respondent Burden

    Exhibit 1 shows the estimated annualized burden hours for the 
respondents' time to participate in the database. An estimated 40 POCs, 
each representing an average of 3 individual nursing homes 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).
     Nursing Home Site Information Form (completion is 
estimated to take about 5 minutes).
     Survey data submission will take an average of one hour.
    The total annual burden hours are estimated to be 54 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 $2,509 annually.
