The Health Workforce Connector helps connect skilled professionals to communities in need by allowing approved Site Points of Contact (POCs) at National Health Service Corps (NHSC), Nurse Corps, Substance Use Disorder Treatment and Recovery (STAR), Pediatric Specialty (PS), Nursing Training, and Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education (THCGME) sites to post available opportunities and update site profiles. The Health Workforce Connector provides a central platform to connect participants, including but not limited to those in the NHSC, Nurse Corps, STAR, and PS programs and facilities that are approved for performance of their service obligations. The Health Workforce Connector has become a resource that engages any health care professional or student interested in providing primary care services in underserved communities and with facilities in need of health care providers. The Health Workforce Connector also allows users to create a profile, search for sites, find job and training opportunities, search for other like-minded clinicians, and be searchable by Site POCs.

The change to the number of responses reflects the actual number of accounts over the last year. Upon initial release of the Health Workforce Connector, the estimations were calculated based off assumptions relating to the total number of active BHW program participants (originally 10,658 plus an anticipated 5,000 additional logins for non-participants). However, since the Health Workforce Connector is live, the new estimate is based on actual numbers over the last year. It is anticipated that the estimates will be very similar over the next several years since the Health Workforce Connector is in a steady state. Burden estimates were derived from internal testing with federal staff to create an account and complete a profile on an internal testing website. It is estimated that the Account Creation step will require almost 5 minutes to complete and the burden is displayed as the number of minutes over 60. (5,008 users x (1 responses x .08 hours/response per application) = 400.64 total burden hours). It is also estimated that full profile completion will require 1 hour to complete. The hour-burden estimates include the time to fill out all fields for full profile completion. (4,164 users x (1 responses x 1 hours/response per application) = 4,164 total burden hours). Another difference is that the account and profile creation forms are now submitted as two seperate ICs, as opposed to one in the previous package. This is because the difference in the expected amount of time it takes to complete the profile.
