WEBINAR: Preparing for the HITECH September Deadline - Tips for Negotiating Effective Business Associate Agreements under HIPAA


Business Associate Agreements (BAAs), in the current regulatory and technological environment, require careful review and negotiation of the implementation of the regulatory requirements. In meeting the September 23, 2014 HITECH deadline, thorough consideration must be given to the expanded liability exposure while considering the specific aspects of the business arrangement and, in particular, the nature of the Business Associate services.

Ober|Kaler health lawyers James B. Wieland and Emily H. Wein presented this one-hour webinar examining the issues surrounding BAAs. Beyond reviewing basic requirements of HITECH amendments to the HIPAA Privacy Rule’s requirement for such agreements, the program provided tips and suggestions from two experienced HIPAA negotiators of the practical aspects of BAAs.
