Part III of the proposed order requires that Myspace obtain within 180 days, and on a biennial basis thereafter for twenty (20) years, an assessment and report from a qualified, objective, independent third-party professional, certifying, among other things, that: It has in place a privacy program that provides protections that meet or exceed the protections required by Part II of the proposed order; and its privacy controls are operating with sufficient effectiveness to provide reasonable assurance that the privacy of covered information is protected. Parts IV through VIII of the proposed order are reporting and compliance provisions. Part IV requires that Myspace retain for a period of five (5) years: (a) All ‘‘widely disseminated statements’’ that describe the extent to which respondent maintains and protects the privacy and confidentiality of any covered information, along with all materials relied upon in making or disseminating such statements; (b) all consumer complaints directed at Myspace, or forwarded to Myspace by a third party, that allege unauthorized collection, use, or disclosure of covered information and any responses to such complaints; (c) all subpoenas and other communications with law enforcement entities or personnel that relate to its compliance with the proposed order; (d) documents that contradict, qualify, or call into question its compliance with the proposed order. Part IV additionally requires that Myspace retain all materials relied upon to prepare the third-party assessments for a period of five (5) years after the date that each assessment is prepared. Part V requires dissemination of the order now and in the future to principals, officers, directors, and managers, and to all current and future employees, agents, and representatives having supervisory responsibilities relating to the subject matter of the order. Part VI ensures notification to the FTC of changes in corporate status. Part VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:46 May 11, 2012 Jkt 226001 VII mandates that Myspace submit an initial compliance report to the FTC and make available to the FTC subsequent reports.

[FR Doc. 2012–11604 Filed 5–11–12; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 6820–34–P DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Announcement of Requirements and Registration for ‘‘Ocular Imaging Challenge’’ Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, HHS. ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: Award Approving Official: Farzad Mostashari, National Coordinator for Health Information Technology. Authority: 15 U.S.C. 3719. The ‘‘Ocular Imaging Challenge’’ is a multidisciplinary call to innovators and software developers to create an application that improves interoperability among office-based ophthalmic imaging devices, measurement devices, and EHRs. Documentation of the typical ophthalmology examination in an electronic health record (EHR) continues to be challenging. This creates barriers to full acceptance and use of EHRs within the medical community. Data and images are often stored on the acquisition devices in proprietary databases and file formats, and therefore have limited connectivity with EHR systems and ophthalmology-specific picture archiving and communication systems (PACS). There are often problems with redundant entry of demographic and clinical data into devices, data transfer from devices to EHRs and PACS without proprietary interfaces, workflow challenges, and difficulty connecting systems from different vendors. These same challenges occur in a plurality of other medical specialties that employ officebased testing and measurement. Given this fact, there is every expectation that the success of this challenge will be translatable to practices that use imaging and measurement devices such as otorhinolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat), physiatry (physical medicine and rehabilitation), and cardiology, among others.
