The data collected through this ICR informs the Federal Government's understanding of disease patterns and furthers the development of policies for prevention and control of disease spread and impact related to the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). One of the most important uses of the data collected through this ICR is to determine critical allocations of limited supplies (e.g., protective equipment and medication). For instance, this collection has been used to distribute Remdesivir, a vital therapeutic that HHS distributes to the American healthcare system, via distinct data calls on regular intervals. As of July 10, HHS reduced the number requests for data from hospitals to support allocations of Remdesivir. HHS has stopped sending out one-time requests for data to aid in the distribution of Remdesivir or any other treatments or supplies. This consolidated daily reporting is the only mechanism used for the distribution calculations, and daily reports are needed to ensure accurate calculations.
The following emergency revision changes are proposed to the requested federal data collection. The substantive change consists of making some fields inactive for federal data collection, the creation of fields related to pediatric hospitalizations, requiring influenza fields, and minor changes to the cadence of reporting. These changes are necessary to help the nation continue to track and manage the national COVID-19 response, improve the collection of pediatric patient data and relieve and reduce the burden of hospital reporting, while allowing states the flexibility to continue their respective data collection systems. The changes discussed will reduce the number of data elements from 116 fields to approximately 85 fields and reduce the burden of reporting by 15 minutes.
