Business Associate Agreements (BAAs), in the current regulatory and technological environment, require careful review and negotiation of the implementation of the regulatory requirements.

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.
