Proposed Project

Well-Integrated Screening and Evaluation for Women Across the Nation (WISEWOMAN) Reporting System (OMB #0920-0612, exp. 12/31/2016)—Extension—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

The WISEWOMAN program (Well-Integrated Screening and Evaluation for Women Across the Nation), sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), was established to examine ways to improve the delivery of services for women who have limited access to health care and elevated risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD). The program focuses on reducing CVD risk factors and provides screening services for selected risk factors such as elevated blood cholesterol, hypertension, and abnormal blood glucose levels. The program also provides women with referrals to lifestyle programs and medical care. The WISEWOMAN program provides services to women who are jointly enrolled in the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP), also administered by CDC.

The WISEWOMAN program is administered by state health departments and tribal programs. In 2013, new cooperative agreements were awarded under Funding Opportunity Announcement DP13-1302. These awards are currently in the final year of funding, but may be extended by CDC for one additional year, subject to the availability of funds.

CDC collects two types of information from WISEWOMAN awardees. The hardcopy Annual Progress Report provides a narrative summary of each awardee's objectives and the activities undertaken to meet program goals. The estimated burden per response is 16 hours.

In addition, each WISEWOMAN awardee submits an electronic data file to CDC twice per year. The Minimum Data Elements (MDE) file contains de-identified, client-level information about the cardiovascular disease risk factors of women served by the program, and the number and type of lifestyle program sessions they attend. The estimated burden per response for the MDE file is 24 hours.

CDC seeks a one-year extension to enable reporting for the final year of activities funded under the current cooperative agreement and the option year, subject to the availability of funds. There are no changes to the information collected, the burden per response, reporting frequency, the number of awardees, or the total annualized burden hours.

CDC will continue to use the information collected from WISEWOMAN awardees to support program monitoring and improvement activities, evaluation, and assessment of program outcomes. The overall program evaluation is designed to demonstrate how WISEWOMAN can obtain more complete health data on vulnerable populations, promote public education about disease incidence, cardiovascular disease risk-factors, health promotion, improve the availability of screening and diagnostic services for under-served women, ensure the quality of services provided to underserved women, and develop strategies for improved interventions. Participation in this information collection is required as a condition of cooperative agreement funding. There are no costs to respondents other than their time.

The total annualized burden hours are 1,344.
