According to a 2006 survey, 38% of HIPAA-covered healthcare providers are not fully compliant with regulatory requirements governing their Business Associate (BA) relationships... and those are only the organizations that recognize and report their deficiency. Yet most Covered Entities (CEs) share their patients' Protected Health Information (PHI) with these third parties through routine operations. This suggests that much of the healthcare industry is falling short in its responsibility to preserve the privacy and security of PHI when handled by Business Associates.

The good news is that compliance is attainable with reasonable measures. This presentation spells out the HIPAA BA requirements and how to meet and exceed them, while also providing practical tips for avoiding common pitfalls in managing BA relationships.

Areas Covered in the seminar:
  • What HIPAA requires of CEs before allowing BAs to access their Protected Health Information
  • Important additional considerations that HIPAA doesn't tell you … and some your lawyer didn't think of
  • Tips on managing the privacy & security of your PHI throughout the life cycle of the business relationship, from new BA through termination
  • Some common pitfalls - and how to avoid them
Who Will Benefit:
This presentation will help healthcare providers, payors, and clearinghouses - HIPAA Covered Entities - to ensure regulatory compliance regarding their Business Associates with legally-defensible strategies and processes to assure privacy and security of PHI. Employees who will benefit include:
  • Privacy Officers
  • Information Security Officers
  • Compliance Officers
  • Legal counsel
  • Risk managers
  • Contract managers
