Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520), Federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. In addition, the PRA also requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each new proposed collection, each proposed extension of existing collection of information, and each reinstatement of previously approved information collection before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, we are publishing this notice of a proposed data collection as described below.
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 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 clarity of the information to be collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and (e) estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. 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.

Background and Brief Description
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is requesting a three-year approval of the National Healthcare Safety Network information collection project.
The National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) is a system designed to accumulate, exchange, and integrate relevant information and resources among private and public stakeholders to support local and national efforts to protect patients and promote healthcare safety. Specifically, the data is used to determine the magnitude of various healthcare-associated adverse events and trends in the rates of these events among patients and healthcare workers with similar risks.
The data collected will be used to inform and detect changes in the epidemiology of adverse events resulting from new and current medical therapies and changing risks. The NHSN currently consists of five components: Patient Safety, Healthcare Personnel Safety, Biovigilance, Long-Term Care Facility (LTCF), and Dialysis. The Outpatient Procedure Component is on track to be released in NHSN in 2018. The development of this component has been previously delayed to obtain additional user feedback and support from outside partners.
Changes were made to four facility surveys. Based on user feedback and internal reviews of the annual facility surveys it was determined that questions and response options be amended, removed, or added to fit the evolving uses of the annual facility surveys. Also, the surveys are being increasingly used to help intelligently interpret the other data elements reported into NHSN. Currently, the surveys are used to appropriately risk adjust the numerator and denominator data entered into NHSN while also guiding decisions on future division priorities for prevention.
Further, two new forms were added to expand NHSN surveillance to enhance data collection by Ambulatory Surgical Centers to identify areas where prevention of SSIs may be improved. An additional 14 forms were modified within the Hemovigilance module to streamline data collection/entry for adverse reaction events.Start Printed Page 24712
Overall, minor revisions have been made to a total of 38 forms within the package to clarify and/or update surveillance definitions, increase or decrease the number of reporting facilities, and adding new forms. The previously approved NHSN package included 70 individual collection forms; the current revision request includes a total of 72 forms. The reporting burden will decrease by 811,985 hours, for a total of 5,922,953 hours.
This collection of information is authorized by the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 242b, 242k, and 242m (d)). There is no cost to respondents other than the time to participate.
