Managing Business Associates: Practical Guidance
Developing good relationships with business associates is an essential component of an information security strategy. It also helps to ensure compliance with HIPAA and the HITECH Act and to avoid breaches. Join us for this webinar, where a leading health information security expert will address such issues as:

  • What are the most important questions to ask business associates about their privacy and security practices?
  • What provisions are essential to include in business associate agreements?
  • How does business associate management differ based on the type of vendor involved?

Background

Developing and maintaining good relationships with business associates is an essential component of successful information security and privacy programs. Although business associates are entrusted with protected health information, patients rely on healthcare organizations, including hospitals, clinics and health plans, to safeguard their data. That's why it's essential that these organizations work closely with their business partners to protect patient information, prevent breaches and ensure compliance with HIPAA and the HITECH Act.

In this exclusive session, a leading security expert will provide strategies for working closely with business associates to reduce the risk of breaches. You will learn:

  • Questions to ask prospective and current business associates about their privacy and security practices;
  • Tips for all the details to include in business associate agreements - including HIPAA and HITECH compliance - and how and when to update these details;
  • How to use different strategies depending on a business associate's size and type;
  • Techniques for strengthening communication, and why it is critical;
  • Ways to work with business associates to comply with the proposed Accounting of Disclosures Rule, which calls for providing patients with access reports.
