Periodically, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) publishes abstracts of information collection requests under review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), in compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). To request a copy of the clearance requests submitted to OMB for review, call the HRSA Reports Clearance Office on (301) 443-1129.

The following request has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget for review under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995:

Proposed Project: Office of Health Information Technology, Health Center Controlled Networks Progress Reports—New

The Office of Health Information Technology (OHIT), Division of State and Community Assistance (DSCA), plans to collect network outcome measures, conduct evaluation of those measures, and create an electronic reporting system for the following new 2007 grant opportunities: Health Information Technology Planning Grants, Electronic Health Record Implementation Health Center Controlled Networks (HCCN), Health Information Technology Innovations for Health Center Controlled Networks, and High Impact Electronic Health Records Implementation for Health Center Controlled Networks and Large Multi Site Health Centers. In order to help carry out its mission, DSCA has created a set of performance measures that grantees will use to evaluate the effectiveness of their service programs and monitor their progress through the use of performance reporting data.

OHIT has developed an electronic performance measurement reporting instrument with HRSA's Office of Information Technology. The instrument will accomplish the following goals: monitor improved access to needed services, evaluate the productivity and efficiency of the networks, and monitor patient outcome measures. Grantees will submit their Progress Reports in a mid-year report and an accumulative annual progress report each fiscal year of the grant.

The estimates of burden are as follows:
