Business Associates Training
A Business Associate (BA) is a person or entity performing certain functions or activities that involve the use or disclosure of protected health information on behalf of, or in services to, a covered entity. After the finalization of The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, certain elements of the HIPAA Privacy Rule and the HIPAA Security Rule apply to Business Associates. Training is not only important but a necessary element for a Business Associates’ compliance program.
Our Business Associates Program is designed specifically to meet the compliance needs of individuals or businesses that work with covered entities and have access to protected health information. While this training is a requirement of the HIPAA regulations, it is also important to show compliance with training when approaching potential clients. Business Associates will receive the training and support needed to get through the tough HIPAA questions as well as potential breach situations.
Training may be delivered onsite and/or accessed in an electronic format via the internet. The training provides the basics of how to comply with HIPAA regulations that apply to your specific role when handling protected health information.
