Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Core Medical Services Waiver; Application Requirements
Document Number: 2013-12354
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-05-24
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration
Title XXVI of the Public Health Service Act, as amended by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009 (Ryan White Program or RWP), requires that grantees expend 75 percent of Parts A, B, and C funds on core medical services, including antiretroviral drugs, for individuals with HIV/AIDS identified and eligible under the statute. The statute also grants the Secretary authority to waive this requirement if there are no waiting lists for the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) and core medical services are available to all individuals identified and eligible under Title XXVI in an applicant's service area. Prior to this policy announcement, grantees seeking a waiver of the 75 percent requirement have been required to submit core medical services waiver requests at the same time as the annual grant application. Recognizing RWP grantees' request for additional flexibility in the timing of waiver applications, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is providing grantees additional options for making waiver requests. HRSA is amending the uniform waiver standards for RWP grantees requesting a core medical services waiver for fiscal year (FY) 2014 and beyond. The amended standards will allow grantees to apply for a waiver (a) at the same time as their annual Part A, B, or C application submission, (b) at any time up to their annual Part A, B, or C application submission, or (c) up to four months after their grant award for that funding year. This Federal Register notice seeks to make public the revised policy and provide an opportunity for public comment before its implementation.

Summary of Responses To Request for Information (RFI): Opportunities To Apply a Department of Health and Human Services Message Library To Advance Understanding About Toddler and Preschool Nutrition and Physical Activity
Document Number: 2013-10968
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-05-08
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration
On January 29, 2013, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) issued a Request for Information (RFI) to solicit ideas and information related to ways in which the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) can work with interested partners to disseminate and apply TXT4Tots, a library of short, evidence-based messages on nutrition and physical activity targeted to parents, caregivers, and health care providers of children ages 1-5 years. HRSA released the TXT4Tots library in English and Spanish on February 19, 2013; and followed with an Open Forum on February 20, 2013, to provide further opportunity for input on dissemination and application of the library of messages. HHS received over 25 written responses to the RFI, and approximately 100 individuals participated in the Open Forum. Comments and Responses: The written responses to the RFI as well as the comments received through the Open Forum indicate that TXT4Tots aligns with the activities of many existing organizations and programs. Several of the respondents expressed an interest in collaborative opportunities to incorporate the messages into current outreach and educational efforts. Some examples of current programs that could leverage the TXT4Tots messages include initiatives at the federal, state, and local levels. The majority of the suggested organizations and programs focus on promoting healthy choices for children and their families. Recommendations included integrating the TXT4Tots messages into their programs and services or using the internet to disseminate the information through Web sites and social media. Respondents also emphasized that mobile health, social media, and other innovative strategies are a valuable resource to reach a diverse population and can be effectively leveraged to support equitable access to health information. With regard to vehicles for dissemination of the TXT4Tots messages, respondents suggested that they needn't be complicated, but should be user friendly. In addition, respondents noted that the most effective tools for dissemination are those that can fully engage the end users. Specific suggestions for dissemination of the TXT4Tots messages included social media, existing tools and applications, existing Web sites and web services, and text messages, as well incorporating messages into baby product packaging, curricula, health fairs, emails, newsletters, and print materials. Emphasis was placed on leveraging existing platforms that promote healthy choices for young children and could readily integrate the TXT4Tots message content. Respondents also recommended that the TXT4Tots messages be linked to additional sources of information; for example, if utilized as a text message program, URLs could be included to link the message recipients to Web sites with additional information. In addition, social media posts could link to Web sites with ideas for healthy recipes and age-appropriate activities to compliment the messages. Some respondents indicated that the use of certain technology-based platforms may restrict access to the underserved, who might have limited access to smartphones or the internet. One additional concern that was voiced by numerous respondents was confusion regarding the purpose of TXT4Tots and how it is intended to be used. Specifically, it was unclear that this is a library of messages that could be used in a variety of existing platforms and products and not exclusively a text messaging service. Guidance regarding specific details about the use of the TXT4Tots messages has been added to the TXT4Tots Web page (http:// www.hrsa.gov/healthit/txt4tots). HRSA appreciates all of the thoughtful comments received either via the RFI or Open Forum. Guidance regarding specific details about the use of the TXT4Tots messages has been added to the TXT4Tots Web page (http://www.hrsa.gov/healthit/txt4tots). It is our hope that the thoughtful recommendations and comments will spur others to explore innovative ways for disseminating the TXT4Tots content.

Information Collection Request Title: Health Center Program Application Forms: (OMB No. 0915-0285 Revision). Abstract: Health centers (section 330 grant funded and Federally Qualified Health Center Look-Alikes) deliver comprehensive, high quality, cost-effective primary health care to patients regardless of their ability to pay. Health centers have become an essential primary care provider for America's most vulnerable populations. Health centers advance the preventive and primary medical/health care home model of coordinated, comprehensive, and patient-centered care, coordinating a wide range of medical, dental, behavioral, and social services. More than 1,200 health centers operate nearly 9,000 service delivery sites that provide care in every state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Pacific Basin. The Health Centers Program is administered by HRSA's Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC). HRSA/BPHC uses the following application forms to oversee the Health Center Program. These application forms are used by new and existing Health centers to apply for various grant and non-grant opportunities, renew their grant or non-grant designation, and change their scope of project. 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.

Information Collection Request Title: Corps Community Day Event Form (OMB No. 0915-xxxx)[NEW] Abstract: Corps Community Day was created in 2011 and celebrates the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) every October during National Primary Care Week. The NHSC is a program administered by the Bureau of Clinician Recruitment and Service (BCRS) within HRSA. The goals of Corps Community Day encompass the following: increase awareness of the NHSC to potential applicants and the greater primary health community; create a sense of community and connectedness among NHSC program participants, alumni, partners, and staff; and underscore the NHSC's role in bringing primary health care services to the nation's neediest communities. Current program participants, alumni, NHSC Ambassadors, sites, primary care organizations, and professional associations plan events and report the details of their events to BCRS so that they can be added to the state-by-state map of events. In order to avoid duplication of effort, eliminate confusion regarding allowable event dates, avoid data entry errors, and implement a brief post-event satisfaction survey, BCRS would like to implement a standard form that event planners will use to report to BCRS. The fillable form will be available online and will have less than 20 fields for event planners to populate to submit for inclusion on the map. There will also be approximately 5 fields to populate following the event to measure satisfaction. Both the pre-event and post-event data fields will be held in one form. 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.

Information Collection Request Title: Primary Care Faculty Development Initiative (OMB No. 0915-xxxx)[New]. Abstract: HRSA's Bureau of Health Professions, Division of Medicine and Dentistry, has contracted with Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU), contract HHSH250201200023C, to conduct the planning, execution, and evaluation of a nationally based, longitudinal Primary Care Faculty Development Initiative (PCFDI) demonstration project. OHSU has developed web-based survey instruments which will be used to evaluate the effectiveness of the planned curriculum and its implementation and to make recommendations to improve teaching and competency assessment in primary care educational activities. The two web-based surveys are Irvine's Leadership Behavior Survey and the Faculty Skill & Program Feasibility Survey. The objectives of the survey instruments are to: assess the feasibility and acceptability of an inter-disciplinary faculty development pilot program targeting primary care physicians; to measure the leadership skills of PCFDI faculty participants; and to assess the initial impact of faculty receiving training from an inter-disciplinary faculty development pilot program on their perception of skill development in the core content areas of leadership, change management, teamwork, panel or population management, competency assessment, and clinical microsystems. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the information requested.

Information Collection Request Title: Bureau of Health Professions Performance Data Collection (OMB No. 0915-0061)[Revision]. Abstract: Over 40 BHPr programs award grants to health professions schools and training programs across the United States to develop, expand, and enhance training; and to strengthen the distribution of the health workforce. Many of these programs are governed by the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 201 et seq.), specifically Titles III, VII, and VIII. Performance information is collected in the HRSA Performance Report for Grants and Cooperative Agreements (PRGCA). Data collection activities at application, progress, and annual performance satisfy statutory and programmatic requirements for performance measurement and evaluation (including specific Title III, VII and VIII requirements), as well as Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) requirements. The Affordable Care Act (Pub. L. 111- 148) impacted a broad range of health workforce programs administered by BHPr. It reauthorized most of these programs and, in some cases, expanded eligibility, modified program activities, and/or established new requirements. The Affordable Care Act also created new health professions programs. Therefore, it was necessary to reexamine BHPr's existing performance measures to ensure that they address these changes, meet evolving program management needs, and respond to emerging workforce concerns. The proposed revised data collection will enhance analysis and reporting of grantee training and education activities, outcomes, and intended practice locations. Data collected from these grant programs will also provide a description of the program activities of more than 1,600 reporting grantees to better inform policymakers on the barriers, opportunities, and outcomes involved in health care workforce development. The proposed measures focus on five key outcomes: (1) Increasing the workforce supply of diverse well-educated practitioners; (2) influencing the distribution of practitioners to practice in underserved and rural areas; (3) enhancing the quality of education; (4) diversifying the pipeline for new health professionals; and (5) supporting educational infrastructure to increase the capacity to train more health professionals. Revisions to the current reporting will require the collection of baseline data at the grant application and award stages and will include performance reporting semi-annually by the type of programs: direct financial support programs, infrastructure programs, and multipurpose or hybrid programs (could be direct financial support, infrastructure or both within the same grant program). Measures will be reported at the individual, program-specific and/or program cluster-levels. 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. The annual estimate of burden is as follows:

Information Collection Request Title: The Health Education Assistance Loan (HEAL) Program: Physician's Certification of Borrower's Total and Permanent Disability Form (OMB No. 0915-0204)-Extension Abstract: The Health Education Assistance Loan (HEAL) program provided federally-insured loans to students in schools of allopathic medicine, osteopathic medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, optometry, podiatric medicine, pharmacy, public health, allied health, or chiropractic, and graduate students in health administration or clinical psychology through September 30, 1998. Eligible lenders, such as banks, savings and loan associations, credit unions, pension funds, state agencies, HEAL schools, and insurance companies, made new refinanced HEAL loans which are insured by the federal government against loss due to borrower's death, disability, bankruptcy, and default. The basic purpose of the program was to assure the availability of funds for loans to eligible students who needed to borrow money to pay for their educational loans. Currently, the program monitors the federal liability and assists in default prevention activities. The HEAL borrower, the borrower's physician, and the holder of the loan complete the Physician's Certification form to certify that the HEAL borrower meets the total and permanent disability provisions. The Department uses this form to obtain detailed information about disability claims which includes the following: (1) The borrower's consent to release medical records to the Department of Health and Human Services and to the holder of the borrower's HEAL loans; (2) pertinent information supplied by the certifying physician; (3) the physician's certification that the borrower is unable to engage in any substantial gainful activity because of a medically determinable impairment that is expected to continue for a long and indefinite period of time or to result in death; and (4) information from the lender on the unpaid balance. Failure to submit the required documentation will result in disapproval of a disability claim. No changes have been made to the current form. 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.
