Business Consulting Differently, Catered to HIPAA Covered Entities, Business Associates, and Subcontractors.
HIPAA stands for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996.
HIPAA Covered Entities (CEs) are healthcare providers who conduct certain financial and administrative transactions electronically with PHI ( Ex: Healthcare providers who submit claims electronically), Health Plans, and Health Care Clearinghouses.
PHI stands for Protected Health Information. It is any data containing at least one HIPAA identifier.
Business Associate Agreements (BAAs) or Contracts outline how the HIPAA Covered Entity (CE) and the Business Associate (BA) will handle confidentiality, privacy, and security of Protected Health Information (PHI) involved.
Thus, a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) or Contract is required between a HIPAA Covered Entity (CE) and a Business Associate (BA); and between a Business Associate and its Subcontractors.
