NRPM: Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information. 1. Compliance


The rules proposed below at § 164.522 would establish several requirements designed to enable the Secretary to monitor and seek to ensure compliance with the provisions of this subpart. The general philosophy of this section is to provide a cooperative approach to obtaining compliance, including use of technical assistance and informal means to resolve disputes. However, in recognition of the fact that it would not always be possible to achieve compliance through cooperation, the section also would provide the Secretary with tools for carrying out her statutory mandate to achieve compliance.
