HIPAA/HITECH Privacy for Business Associates

Course Description

The final Omnibus rules for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), as amended by the HITECH Act places greater responsibility on all Business Associates to safeguard Protected Health Information. Business Associates and their subcontractors will, for the first time, have some absolute obligations for how they can use and disclose protected health information that they handle on behalf of the covered entity. This privacy course is specifically tailored to help employees of business associates understand what information is private, why it is private and what they can do to protect it.
