Topic Background:

Under the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rule, health care organizations are required to perform active risk prevention and safeguarding of patient information that are very important to patient privacy. Health care organizations often use the services of a variety of contractors and businesses. The HITECH act allows covered entities to disclose the minimum necessary for protected health information (PHI) to these “business associates”. This should only be allowed if the covered entities obtain satisfactory documented assurances that the business associate will use the PHI information only for the required designated business purposes for which it was engaged in contract by the covered entity. The business associate must safeguard any and all subsequent information from misuse, abuse or unauthorized disclosures. The business associate is required to render due diligence to help protect the covered entity in complying with the covered entity’s duties under the HIPAA Privacy Rule within the scope of their normal business processes, operations and services to the covered entity.
