HHS Presser: Deborah Peel asks a question: Concerned whether NPRM fulfills promises if HHS doesn't even define "privacy." When will a definition be provided? Want to make sure public gets to participate in listening tour.

Answer: we welcome your input. We will consider whether defining privacy is necessary; right now it's not part of the NPRM.

Followup: what are you doing about Data Mining? Answer: with BAs being directly liable, that should help us punish them if they misuse the information. Breach website will help tell when this is happening.
