To help assure healthcare privacy and security in automated systems,
usage data need to be collected. These data will be reviewed by
administrative staff to verify that healthcare data is being used in
accordance with the healthcare provider's data security requirements
and to establish accountability for data use. This review process is
called security auditing.
This document defines the format of the data to be collected and
minimum set of attributes that need to be captured by healthcare
application systems for subsequent use by an automation-assisted
review application. The data includes records of who accessed
healthcare data, when, for what action, from where, and which
patients' records were involved. The data definition is an XML
schema to be used as a reference by healthcare standards developers
and application designers.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
