Proposed Project

Minimum Data Elements (MDEs) for the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) (OMB# 0920-0571 exp. 1/31/2010)—Extension—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

Congress established the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) in 1991 by enacting the Breast and Cervical Cancer Mortality Prevention Act of 1990. This legislation authorized the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to provide funding to states for the development and maintenance of early detection programs designed to ensure that under-served, low income, and under-insured women receive access to breast and cervical cancer screening services. Services provided through the NBCCEDP include clinical breast examinations, mammograms and Pap tests, timely and adequate diagnostic testing for abnormal results, and referrals to appropriate treatment. The NBCCEDP has operated for 19 years and currently funds 68 programs including all 50 states, five U.S. Territories, 12 American Indian/Alaska Native organizations and the District of Columbia.Start Printed Page 48077

NBCCEDP awardees collect patient-level screening and tracking data to manage the program and clinical services, and transmit a de-identified subset of data on patient demographics, screening tests and outcomes to CDC twice per year (Minimum Data Elements (MDEs) for the NBCCEDP, OMB No. 0920-0571, exp. 1/31/2010). CDC requests OMB approval to continue electronic information collection for three additional years.

CDC uses the MDEs to monitor and evaluate NBCCEDP awardees; improve the availability and quality of screening and diagnostic services for underserved women; develop outreach strategies for women who are never or rarely screened for breast and cervical cancer; and report program results to Congress and other legislative authorities. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 544.
