HIPAA Compliance Requirements for Business Associates 2017


HIPAA Compliance Requirements for Business Associates 2017
Event on 2017-08-17 09:00:00
Overview:

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.
