Business Associate Agreements

It is of great importance, a covered entity enter into a Business Associate Agreement with each organization or vendor that accesses, uses or discloses PHI to on behalf of the organization . This, of course, will ensure the Business Associate uses appropriate safeguards to protect the PHI in the same manner that the covered entity must. It is essential, that every covered entity create Business Associate Agreements with any entity that handles PHI on their behalf.

Prime examples of Business Associates would include accounting, billing, legal, risk management and IT services. In addition, we can help you identify business associates and provide business associate agreements.

HIPAA Gap Analysis

A well-functioning program will have an ongoing process that evaluates and assess the organization to detect inappropriate behavior to meet HIPAA requirements. As a result, this will also help to ensure effectiveness of education and corrective action. In addition, the compliance program should monitor compliance with privacy and provide a risk assessment of potential privacy issues.

A formal HIPAA Gap Analysis is a critical part of monitoring and auditing a privacy compliance program. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Security Rule requires that covered entities and its business associates conduct a risk assessment of their healthcare organization. In other words, a risk assessment helps your organization ensure it is compliant with HIPAA’s Administrative, Physical, and Technical safeguards and also helps reveal areas where your organization’s protected health information (PHI) could be at risk.

Internal staff or an external contractor should conduct an audit of the overall programs at least annually. Subsequently, these findings should be made available to the Chief Compliance Officer and/or the Chief Operating Officer.
