Title, Associated Form and OMB Number: Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Staff Satisfaction Survey; 0720-TBD.
Type of Request: New.
Number of Respondents: 3,105.
Responses per Respondent: 2.
Annual Responses: 6,210.
Average Burden per Response: 10 minutes.
Annual Burden Hours: 1,035.
Needs and Uses: The information collection requirement is necessary to measure satisfaction among staff at direct care military treatment facilities (MTFs) that have been identified as current or potential future PCMHs. The survey will ask staff members what new PCMH processes are or are not working well at the clinic. It will also ask about teamwork among staff at the clinic, the overall clinic environment, and what available resources are assisting them in their provision of quality patient centered care. Eligible staff include: Physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, corpsmen, and administrative staff. Over the next 5-7 years, the DoD will make a significant investment in this primary care transformation. By fielding a survey focused on primary care staff satisfaction, the MHS will be able to monitor our investment in PCMH and study how it affects our people. The goals of this survey effort are to assess staff satisfaction, attitudes and perceptions regarding the implementation of the Patient Centered Medical Home. Respondents will be all military, federal (GS/NSPS) and contracted medical professionals and support staff who work in PCMH clinics. The survey will be administered via a MHS/DoD platform that will capture response data. The survey will be administered via an online tool on a bi-annual basis to medical professionals and support staff. The population sample will receive a pre-notification, and reminder notifications to encourage participation.
Affected Public: Individuals and households; MTF contractor providers and support staff.
Respondent's Obligation: Voluntary.
OMB Desk Officer: Mr. Josh Brammer.
