It is important for a HIPAA Business Associate to understand the HIPAA Privacy Rule and how it affects them. A business associate is an entity who handles protected health information (PHI) on behalf of a covered entity. HIPAA applies to business associates and covered entities which are health plans health care clearinghouses, and health care providers.
It is necessary for business associates to receive HIPAA compliance training for business associates and enter into a HIPAA business associate agreement with the covered entity with whom it participates. A business associate agreement recognizes that the business associate will protect the PHI entrusted to them by the covered entity.
