In this podcast she shares the key consideration that covered entities – physicians, hospitals, health plans and others who fall under the requirements of HIPAA – must consider when working with their various business associates (BA) with whom they share personal health information (PHI).

When considering a potential new business associate she recommends ensuring that the vendor understand that it meets the definition of a business associate. Quite often they do and already have on hand a business associate agreement. It’s preferable to ask them to default to your own agreements, but if they do not – for practical reasons business associates with a large number of customers cannot accommodate each customer’s agreement – see if they are willing to amend their own, if necessary.

When assessing a BA, also take the time to determine if they are using subcontractors. If they do, they should be referenced in the BA agreement. Also, ask the vendor what kind of checks they are doing on their vendors and their own ongoing monitoring efforts
