Comments are invited on (a) whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have a practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarify of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of information technology.

National Disease Surveillance Program II. Disease Summaries (0920-0004 Exp. 8/31/2014)—Revision—National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Background and Brief Description
CDC requests a three year approval for a Revision of the National Disease Surveillance Program II. Disease Summaries information collection.
Proposed revisions include shifting information collection management responsibilities to the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD) and consolidating various forms to reflect more current technology trends. Also, CDC requests the use of the following new Influenza forms to enhance surveillance and assist in understanding the complexities of these newer viruses: Human Infection with Novel Influenza A Virus Severe Outcomes; Human Infection with Novel Influenza A Virus with Suspected Avian Source; and Antiviral Resistant Influenza Infection Case Report Form.
Due to the uncertainty regarding MERS-CoV and its threat to human health, CDC also has a need to use a Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV) [Patient Under Investigation] form. Use of an Adenovirus Typing Report Form and discontinuing the use of the Harmful Algal Bloom-related Illness form is also requested. The Adenovirus Typing Report Form allows for a passive surveillance mechanism that collects adenovirus typing data to enhance adenovirus circulation data already collected by the National Respiratory and Enteric Virus Surveillance System (NREVSS).
The methodology for reporting varies depending on the occurrence, modes of transmission, infectious agents, and epidemiologic measures.
There is no cost to respondents other than their time.
The total estimated annualized burden hours are 31,921.
