Information Collection Request Title: Telehealth Resource Center Performance Measurement Tool (OMB No. 0915-xxxx)—NEW.

Abstract: In order to ensure the best use of public funds and to meet GPRA requirements, the Office for the Advancement of Telehealth (OAT) in collaboration with Telehealth Resource Centers (TRCs) has developed a set of performance metrics to evaluate the technical assistance services provided by the TRCs. The TRC Performance Indicator Data Collection Tool contains the data elements that would need to be collected by TRCs in order to report on the performance metrics. This tool can be easily translated into a web-based data collection system (PIMS). Also, it will allow the TRCs to report to OAT around their projects' performance progress and will allow OAT to demonstrate to Congress the value added from the TRC Grant Program.

Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose, or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions, to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information, to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information, to search data sources, to complete and review the collection of information, and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information. The total annual burden hours estimated for this ICR are summarized in the table below.
