Information about Business Associate Agreement

What Is a HIPAA Business Associate Agreement?

The role and significance of the Business Associate Agreement in Georgia cannot be emphasized enough; it is part of the tool kit for protecting PHI, and therefore the privacy of the individual. Equally important is comprehensive, accurate, on-going Risk Assessment, which certainly needs to be in the corporate radar and culture of compliance, of every health entity and organization. Where these elements are non-existent, danger follows quickly, as their absence leads to poor compliance or non-compliance, and eventually heavy fines.

Where there are no Business Associate Agreements at Georgia health entities, and no risk analysis, there is generally a broad pattern of non-compliance with HIPAA Rules. Laws enforce compliance with HIPAA. To ignore BAA is to be heading in a dangerous direction. The HIPAA experts at InfoSight Inc. will quickly put you on track with HIPAA Rules and Regulations.
