Overview: This session will explain Business Associate HIPAA compliance responsibilities There is a secret to Business Associate HIPAA compliance. The secret is – HIPAA Rules are easy to follow, step-by-step – when you know the steps.

Why should you Attend: Business Associates organizations that create, receive, maintain or transmit Protected Health Information (PHI) on behalf of a Covered Entity or to provide a service or function involving PHI for a covered Entity are directly liable for compliance with HIPAA law protecting the privacy and security of PHI. If you are a Business Associate you must know exactly what you have to do to comply with HIPAA. But you have two hurdles. First, your HIPAA responsibilities are new so you don’t have the HIPAA compliance background and experience of your customers – Covered Entities. Second, you are liable for compliance with the entire HIPAA Security Rule – and parts of the HIPAA Privacy and Breach Notification Rules. But at first, second and third glance it is difficult to find your Privacy and Breach Notification Rule obligations and no one is in charge! HIPAA only directs you to identify a Security Official to develop and implement Security Rule Policies and Procedures. It gives you no direction at all about developing Your Privacy and Breach Notification Rule compliance program.
