  • This webinar will discuss the significant changes to the HIPAA rules for Business Associates, the new challenges for HIPAA Covered Entities and Business Associates, and new risks for non-compliance and penalties.

    Why Should You Attend:
    HIPAA Business Associates are now covered directly under the Privacy Rule’s use and disclosure limitations and the Security Rule’s safeguard provisions. They are responsible for their own compliance with the regulations, and may be held directly liable for any violations of the regulations.
    The new requirements have a direct impact on every business associate agreement, and those will need to be updated to meet the new rules. All kinds of covered entities, and now, business associates of covered entities as well, need to review their HIPAA compliance, policies, and procedures to see of they are prepared to meet the changes in the rules.
    This webinar will help health information professionals understand what they have to do, and what to keep in mind about business associates, in order to be prepared for compliance. We will discuss what covered entities should do to ensure good practices by their Business Associates in order to avoid the considerable expense of breaches. It will provide a comprehensive look at the changes in the law and prepare attendees for the process of incorporating the changes into how they do business in their facilities.
