Proposed Project: Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Modernization Act of 2006: Data Report Form: (OMB No. 0915-0253)—Extension
The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program Annual Data Report (or the Ryan White Data Report, formerly called the CARE Act Data Report [CADR]) was initially created in 1999 by HRSA's HIV/AIDS Bureau. Grantees and their subcontracted service providers who are funded under Parts A, B, C, and D, and the Part F Minority AIDS Initiative of Title XXVI of the Public Health Service Act (the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program), submit the report, which has been revised to more closely resemble the data requested in the client-level data collection instrument that these grantees and providers are now also required to submit. All parts of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program specify HRSA's responsibilities in the administration of grant funds, the allocation of funds, the evaluation of programs for the population served, and the improvement of the quantity and quality of care. Because client-level data reporting requirements are relatively new for the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program grantees, the grantees are still required to report aggregate data in the Ryan White Data Report to HRSA annually. The more mature aggregate reporting requirements provide accurate records of the providers receiving Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program funding, the services provided, and the clients served, which continue to be critical to the implementation of the legislation and necessary for HRSA to fulfill its responsibilities. The Ryan White Data Report has seven different sections containing information about the service providers; demographic information about the clients served; information about the type of core and support services provided and the number of clients served; information about counseling and testing services; clinical information about clients who received outpatient/ambulatory medical care; demographic tables for Parts C and D; and information about health insurance services.
The primary purposes of the Ryan White Data Report are to: (1) Characterize the organizations where clients receive services; (2) provide information on the number and characteristics of clients who receive Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program services; and (3) enable HAB to describe the type and amount of services a client receives. In addition to meeting the goal of accountability to Congress, clients, advocacy groups, and the general public, information collected in the Ryan White Data Report is critical for HRSA, State and local grantees, and individual providers to assess the status of existing HIV-related service delivery systems.
The response burden for grantees is estimated as:
|Program under which grantee is funded||Number of respondents||Responses per grantee||Hours per hours||Total response burden|
The response burden for service providers is estimated as:
|Program under which provider is funded||Number of respondents||Responses per provider||Hours per hours||Total response burden|
|Part A Only||685||1||26||17,810|
|Part B Only||558||1||26||14,508|
|Part C Only||95||1||44||4,180|
|Part D Only||59||1||42||2,478|
|Funded under more than one program||683||1||50||34,150|
|Total for Both Grantees & Providers||2,647||86,766|
