A Business Associate Agreement? Tell Me More!

1st Talk Compliance features guest Rachel V. Rose, JD, MBA, principal with Rachel V. Rose – Attorney at Law, P.L.L.C., Houston, TX, on the topic of “A Business Associate Agreement? Tell Me More!” Rachel joins our host Catherine Short to discuss how Business Associate Agreements (BAA) are not new; however, some individuals are new to healthcare and others never understood what a BAA is exactly. A BAA is a contract that fundamentally gives assurances that the parties are complying with the Security Rule and Privacy Rule, setting parameters in the event of a reportable security incident or a breach, and states how the sensitive data will be returned and destroyed at the end of the relationship. This presentation not only seeks to dispel myths about why certain language is prevalent in nearly all BAAs, but also provides insight into other provisions, and items for consideration, in light of the 21st Century Cures Act.
