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 require 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.

Why should you Attend: 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.
