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.
This hardcover business associate compliance manual contains required policy documentation, a sample business associate agreement, and operating forms to assist you with HIPAA compliance. Stay current with the required forms and information you need. This manual is updated on an annual basis. Update packets are available to purchase to ensure your manual has the changes to forms and documents you need to stay compliant.
Along with your on-site full service program, you’ll receive all the compliance components you need to be OSHA and HIPAA compliant. You have access to online training for new hires or those that missed any on-site training.
What to expect when we visit: Your TMC consultant will go through your facility and do a thorough facility audit with an electronic report, go over the Compliance manual, and provide on-site training.
For our OSHA clients, we provide you with a complimentary spill kit, secondary labels, and meet with your Safety Officer and review their duties.
For HIPAA clients, your facility audit will identify any privacy and security concerns, we’ll provide you with a risk analysis report for your facility, and we’ll meet with your Privacy/Security Officer to review their duties.
Whether you choose us for OSHA, HIPAA, or both, we will work with you to achieve compliance to create a long-lasting relationship rather than just providing a how-to guide leaving you to do all the work. Our goal is to be your primary resource for HIPAA, OSHA, and Infection Control compliance.
