As a Business Associate, what are your HIPAA obligations to your medical clients?
One of the first things to mark off your HIPAA to-do list is to create a Business Associate Agreement that you can give to your medical clients, or use with your subcontractors. Afterall, you are responsible for having agreements with them, as well.
Other requirements include:
*Designating a Privacy and Security officer
*Performing a Risk Assessment annually and/or when big changes occur
*Employee Training on HIPAA best practices that follow your firm’s Policies and Procedures.
