Business Associate Agreements

The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) within the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) contains several provisions that require modification of Business Associate Agreements (BAAs) between HIPAA Covered Entities (CEs) and their Business Associates (BAs) who may use or disclose protected health information on their behalf.  These changes are now codified in the HIPAA Omnibus Update published January 25, 2013.

The changes are focused primarily in three areas of concern:

  • Requirements for BAs and their subcontractors to comply with specific sections of the HIPAA Rules
  • New language surrounding breach notification and the securing of data
  • New disclosure-related requirements where Electronic Health Records (EHRs) are concerned.

Corporate Compliance Manual CD-ROM


The essence of Corporate Compliance is the effective implementation of policies and procedures that ensure ethical operations that meet all necessary laws, rules, and regulations set forth by governing bodies, particularly meeting standards created by the 1996 Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the administrators and enforcers of them. These standards were created to eliminate fraud, waste, abuse and inefficiency in the health care system.
