Proposed Project: Sentinel Centers Network Technical Assistance Needs Assessment (NEW)
HRSA's Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) established the Sentinel Centers Network (SCN) to assist in addressing critical quality, programmatic, and policy issues. Health centers submit core data periodically that is extracted from existing information systems. In order to assess needs for technical assistance (TA), information will be requested from centers regarding current information systems, updates/changes to information systems, and other TA needs. This information will be collected periodically via a project Web site and will be used to manage the ongoing needs of network participants.
The burden estimate for this project is as follows:
|Form||Number of respondents||Number of responses per respondent||Total responses||Hours per response||Total burden hours|
Send comments to Susan G. Queen, Ph.D., HRSA Reports Clearance Officer, Room 10-33 Parklawn Building, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, Maryland 20857. Written comments should be received with 60 days of this notice.Start Signature
