As defined by the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), a Business Associate can be any organization or person working in association with or providing services to a Covered Entity who handles or discloses Protected Health Information (PHI) or Personal Health Records (PHR). With certain exceptions, a person or entity that creates, receives, maintains, or transmits PHI for a function or activity regulated by the HIPAA Privacy Rule for a Covered Entity is a Business Associate.
The HITECH Act, a recent update made to overall HIPAA regulations, requires Business Associates to comply with HIPAA mandates regarding the handling and use of health information. As a Business Associate, you must comply with a wide-range of regulatory obligations, including certain privacy obligations, security standards, and breach notification requirements.
If your business needs to understand what it means to be a Business Associate and know what required safeguards, policies and procedures must be in place or make sure your current compliance program is adequate and can withstand government scrutiny, please join us for this informative and interactive session.
There is a lot of confusion about the role and requirements of being a Business Associate. Organizations must be prepared prior to entering into these contracts for services as a vendor and subcontractor.
Attendees will leave the course clearly understanding all of the requirements that must be in place for the Business Associate - Covered Entity arrangement. After completing this course, a Business Associate will have a clear understanding as to what needs to be in place when it comes to all of the HIPAA regulations.
