Well-Integrated Screening and Evaluation for Women Across the Nation (WISEWOMAN) Reporting System—EXTENSION—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Background and Brief Description
The WISEWOMEN program, which focuses on reducing cardiovascular disease risk factors among at-risk women, was in response to the Secretary of Health and Human Services' Continuous Improvement Initiative, asking for the development of programs that examine ways in which service delivery can be improved for select populations. Title XV of the Public Health Service Act, Section 1509 originally authorized the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services to establish up to three demonstration projects. Through appropriations language, the CDC WISEWOMAN program is now allowed to fund up to 15 projects. Currently, WISEWOMAN funds 12 demonstration projects, which at full implementation are expected to screen approximately 30,000 women annually for cardiovascular disease risk factors. The program targets women already participating in the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) and provides screening for select cardiovascular disease risk factors (including elevated cholesterol, hypertension and abnormal blood glucose levels), lifestyle interventions, and medical referrals as required in an effort to improve cardiovascular health among participants.
The CDC proposes to collect and analyze baseline and follow-up date (12 months post enrollment) for all participants. These data called the minimum data elements (MDE's), includes demographic and risk factor information about women served in each program and information concerning the number and type of intervention sessions attended. The MDE's will be reported to CDC in April and October each year. The MDE allows or an assessment of how effective WISEWOMAN is at reducing the burden of cardiovascular disease risk factors among participants. The CDC also proposes to collect programmatic data for all WISEWOMAN programs. Programmatic data includes information related to grantee management, public education and outreach professional education service delivery, cost, and an assessment of how well each program is meeting their stated objectives.
All required data will be submitted electronically to the contractor hired by CDC to conduct the WISEWOMAN evaluation. MDE and cost data will be submitted to RTI twice a year. All information collected as part of the WISEWOMAN evaluation will be used to assess the costs, effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of WISEWOMAN in reducing cardiovascular disease risk factors, for obtaining more complete health data among vulnerable populations, promoting public education of disease incidence and risk-factors, improving the availability of screening and diagnostic services for under-served women, ensuring the quality of services provided to women and developing strategies for improved interventions. Because certain demographic data are already collected as part of NBCCEDP, the additional burden on grantees will be modest.
There are no costs to the respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 2,160.Start Printed Page 76673
