Proposed Project: The National Health Service Corps Uniform Data System (OMB No. 0915-0232) Extension
The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Bureau of Clinician Recruitment and Service (BCRS) places National Health Service Corps (NHSC) health care professionals at sites that provide services to underserved and vulnerable populations. The NHSC Uniform Data System (UDS) report is completed by sites which receive the placement of an NHSC provider, if those sites are not currently receiving HRSA grant support. The NHSC UDS provides information that is utilized for monitoring and evaluation of program operations and effectiveness, and to accurately report on the scope of supported activities.
The estimated annual burden is as follows:
|Instrument||Number of respondents||Responses per respondent||Total responses||Hours per response||Total burden hours|
|Uniform Data System||1,200||1||1,200||27||32,400|
