Overview: We will take a look at the recent Omnibus Final Rule outlining that all CE's are required to present their BA's with new BAA's, before September 23, 2014. You will also learn why some of the attitudes have recently surfaced from the BA's, why they are resisting some of these agreements, what the BAA's are now required to do according to the same Omnibus Final Rule, and more.

We will discuss responsibility, liability, indemnification, injunctive relief, and other topics that are causing, or may be causing, contention. In the past, so many BA's simply sign these agreements in an effort to continue to do business with each CE. And now, they want to negotiate terms? Why are they making this so complicated? After all, the CE's business that they provide to the BA is more important than an agreement, right? Find out more….

Why should you attend: The business associates (BA's) that a covered entity (CE) uses to perform a covered function for them must now assume responsibility and liability for their actions when it comes to the handling of protected health information (PHI). Learn what these responsibilities are, the reasons for some potential pushback from them regarding liability, providing proof of HIPAA training, etc. It used to be that a majority of BAA's would simply sign the agreements presented to them, but now they are requesting more and more changes to our agreements. In this webinar, you will learn some of the reasons for this new attitude.
