Business Associate Assurance: What covered entities need to know
Have you identified your key business associates handling e-PHI that you create, receive, maintain or transmit?
Do you review your contract periodically with your key business associates?
Do you have the right to audit clause or require your business associate to follow certain minimum security controls and best practices?
One of the most challenging issues for health care organizations is ensuring business associates can be trusted with ePHI (electronic Protected Health Information). Of the 11 million people affected by reportable data breaches between September 2009 and June 2011, 6 million, or 55%, were affected by data breaches involving business associates, according to the federal government. This 50-minute webinar helps the audience to learn assessment strategies a covered entity needs to institute to manage business associates.
