SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background: VHA is the largest health care provider in the country. In order to maintain this organization, VHA collects health care information from its local facilities to evaluate quality of services, clinical resource utilization, and patient safety, as well as to distribute medical information, such as alerts or recalls, track specific diseases, and monitor patients. National-level information is also needed for other activities, such as medical research and the development of National Best Clinical Practice Guidelines and National Quality Standards. VHA gathers this information from a wide variety of sources, including directly from a veteran; from information systems located at VHA medical centers, Veterans Integrated Service Networks (VISN), other VHA facilities, such as the Health Eligibility Center; and Federal departments and agencies such as the U.S. Department of Defense and the Food and Drug Administration. As the data is collected, VHA stores it in several national patient databases.

In this system of records the Category of Records in the System is amended to reflect the data Office of Quality and Performance (OQP) is collecting, and to include the Survey of the Healthcare Experiences of Patients and External Peer Review data capture. These data include any patient-level records created for evaluation as directed by the VHA Performance Management Program or accreditation purposes as defined by the Joint Commission. This information is collected so that OQP can assess, without organizational bias, the adherence of its treatment centers to established clinical protocol for providing care to veterans and to monitor the satisfaction of its patient customers.

The Purpose in this system of records is being amended to reflect that the records and information may be used for statistical analysis to produce various management, workload tracking, and follow-up reports; to track and evaluate the ordering and delivery of equipment, services and patient care; for the planning, distribution and utilization of resources; to monitor the performance of Veterans Integrated Service Networks (VISN); and to allocate clinical and administrative support to patient medical care. The data may be used for VA's extensive research programs in accord with VA policy. In addition, the data may be used to assist in workload allocation for patient treatment services including provider panel management, nursing care, clinic appointments, surgery, prescription processing, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures; to plan and schedule training activities for employees; for audits, reviews and investigations conducted by the Network Directors Office and VA Central Office; for quality assurance audits, reviews and investigations; for law enforcement investigations; and for personnel management, evaluation and employee ratings, and performance evaluations. Survey data will be collected for the purpose of measuring and monitoring National, VISN and Facility-Level performance on VHA's Veteran Health Care Service Standards (VHSS). The VHSS are designed to measure levels of patient satisfaction in areas that patients have defined as important in receiving quality, patient-centered healthcare. Results of the survey data analysis are shared throughout the VHA system. The External Peer Review Program (EPRP) data is collected in order to provide medical centers and outpatient clinics with diagnosis and procedure-specific quality of care information. EPRP is a contracted review of care, specifically designated to collect data to be used to improve the quality of care.

Routine Uses of Records Maintained in the System, Including Categories of Users and the Purposes of Such Uses is being amended to reflect the addition of protecting 38 U.S.C. 5705 Quality Assurance Records, which may not be disclosed under a routine use unless there is also specific statutory authority permitting the disclosure. Routine uses numbers 1, 5, 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 17 have been revised for ease of readability and clarification.

Routine use 19 was added to allow for the disclosure of information to another Start Printed Page 16104Federal agency for the purpose of conducting research.

Routine use 20 was added to allow for the disclosure of limited identification information to another Federal agency in order to obtain information to carry out any purpose outlined in this system of records.

Routine use number 21 was added to allow for records to be disclosed to appropriate agencies, entities, and persons under the following circumstances: when (1) it is suspected or confirmed that the integrity or confidentiality of information in the system of records has been compromised; (2) the Department has determined that as a result of the suspected or confirmed compromise there is a risk of embarrassment or harm to the reputations of the record subjects, harm to economic or property interests, identity theft or fraud, or harm to the security, confidentiality, or integrity of this system or other systems or programs (whether maintained by the Department or another agency or entity) that rely upon the compromised information; and (3) the disclosure is made to such agencies, entities, and persons who are reasonably necessary to assist in connection with the Department's efforts to respond to the suspected or confirmed compromise and prevent, minimize, or remedy such harm. This routine use allows disclosure by the agency to respond to a suspected or confirmed data breach, including the conduct of any risks analysis or provision of credit protection services as provided in 38 U.S.C. 5724, as the terms are defined in 38 U.S.C. 5727.

Routine use 22 was added to accommodate the disclosure of Primary Care Management Module (PCMM) data to the general public.

Appendix 4 has been amended to include Cardiac Assessment Tracking and Reporting for Cardiac Cauterization Laboratories, Corporate Data Warehouse, CMOP Centralized Database System, Bidirectional Health Information Exchange, Financial Clinical Data Mart, Care Management Information System, Parkinson's Disease Research, Education and Clinical Centers Registry, Pharmacy Benefits Management, VA Vital Status File, Short Form Health Survey for Veterans and Office of Quality Performance Data Center. Also, the KLF Menu was renamed to Veterans Integrated Service Network Support Service Center Database. Immunology Case Registry was removed and Clinical Case Registry was changed to Registries to represent the Immunology Case Registry (ICR) and Hepatitis C. There was also removal of the National Patient Care Database (NPCD), Patient Treatment File (PTF) and the National Health Care Practitioner Database (NHCPD) which are now entered as a single system called National Medical Information System (NMIS).

The notice of amendment and an advance copy of the system notice have been sent to the appropriate Congressional committees and to the Director of Office of Management and Budget (OMB) as required by 5 U.S.C. 552a(r) (Privacy Act) and guidelines issued by OMB (65 FR 77677), December 12, 2000.

The data may be used for VA's extensive research programs in accord with VA policy. In addition, the data may be used to assist in workload allocation for patient treatment services including provider panel management, nursing care, clinic appointments, surgery, prescription processing, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures; to plan and schedule training activities for employees; for audits, reviews and investigations conducted by the network directors office and VA Central Office; for quality assurance audits, reviews and investigations; for law enforcement investigations; and for personnel management, evaluation and employee ratings, and performance evaluations. Survey data will be collected for the purpose of measuring and monitoring national, VISN and facility-Level performance on VHA's Veteran Health Care Service Standards (VHSS) pursuant to Executive Order 12862 and the Veterans Health Administration Customer Service Standards Directive. The VHSS are designed to measure levels of patient satisfaction in areas that patients have defined as important in receiving quality, patient-centered healthcare.
