Jan 9 -- Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Department of Health and Human Services, invites comments to OMB by February 10, 2023 regarding Evidence-Based Telehealth Network Program Measures. [Comments due 30 days from submission to OMB on Jan 11.]
This ICR is for an extension of currently approved measures for the Office for the Advancement of Telehealth (OAT)'s Evidence Based Telehealth Network Program, under which OAT administers cooperative agreements in accordance with section 330I of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 254c-14), as amended. The purpose of this program is to demonstrate how telehealth programs and networks can improve access to quality health care services. This program will work to help HRSA assess the effectiveness of evidence-based practices with the use of telehealth for patients, providers, and payers.
The measures will enable HRSA and OAT to capture awardee-level and aggregate data that illustrate the impact and scope of federal funding along with assessing these efforts. The measures cover the principal topic areas of interest to OAT, including: (a) population demographics; (b) access to health care; (c) cost savings and cost-effectiveness; and (d) clinical outcomes.
The respondents would be award recipients of the Evidence-Based Telehealth Network Program.
