Rethinking Business Associate Relationships in the Era of Big Data

July 23, 2015

Complimentary Webinar

In the wake of several high-profile cyberattacks involving protected health information, healthcare providers and their vendors face increased operational and legal challenges under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) related to the security of electronic health data. In this new environment, it is important for covered entities (and business associates) to select and contract with vendors in a manner that effectively secures the entity’s health data and appropriately allocates responsibilities should the data be compromised.

This webinar provided key practical tools for evaluating potential vendors, guidelines for negotiating business associate agreements, and tips for monitoring vendor relationships after the business associate agreement is signed.
