Proposed Project: Ryan White CARE Act: Title III Client Level Data Project, CDP (OMB No. 0915-0275)—Extension
The CDP was originally established in 1994 to collect information from grantees and their subcontracted service providers funded under Titles I and II of the Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency (CARE) Act of 1990, as amended by the Ryan White CARE Act Amendments of 1996 and 2000, (codified under Title XXVI) of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act. This effort will collect client level data from a limited number of Ryan White CARE Act Title III Grantees. HRSA's HIV/AIDS Bureau administers funds for all titles of the CARE Act. The Title III program is authorized by Section 2651 of the PHS Act.
The PHS Act specifies that HRSA is responsible for the administration of grant funds, the allocation of funds, the evaluation of programs for the population served, and the improvement of the quantity and quality of care. Accurate records on the grantees receiving CARE Act funding, the services provided, and the clients served are critical to the implementation of the legislation and thus are necessary for HRSA to fulfill its responsibilities.
Client level information will be collected from 24 CARE Act funded grantees regarding the number of clients served, services provided, demographic information about clients served, and health status of clients served. In addition, client level information will be collected that measures mortality status and additional indicators of health status and whether standards of care are being followed by providers.
The primary purposes of the CDP are to examine client level demographic and service data on HIV/AIDS infected/affected clients being served by the Ryan White CARE Act and demonstrate the usefulness of these data for planning and evaluation purposes. Through this system, HRSA seeks to supplement the information collected in the CARE Act Data Report (CADR). The CADR collects data aggregated at the grantee level and contains duplicated counts of clients who have received services from more than one provider during a given reporting period.
The burden estimate for this project is as follows:
|Grantee||Number of respondents||Responses per respondents||Total responses||Hours per response||Total burden hours|
Written comments and recommendations concerning the proposed information collection should be sent within 30 days of this notice to: Desk Officer, Health Resources and Services Administration, Human Resources and Housing Branch, Office of Management and Budget, New Executive Office Building, Room 10235, Washington, DC 20503.Start Signature
