The HIPAA Privacy Rule requires that Business Associates will appropriately safeguard the protected health information it receives or creates on behalf of Covered Entities (healthcare providers).
AM I A BUSINESS ASSOCIATE?
A “business associate” is a person or entity that performs certain functions or activities that involve the use or disclosure of protected health information on behalf of, or provides services to, a covered entity. Some examples include:
3rd Party Administrator – CPA Firm – Lawyer – Consultant – Medical Transcriber – Collection and Billing Company – Marketing Company – Practice Management Software Provider – IT Provider
