Third Party Business Associate Agreement

Firms wishing to avoid counterparty obligations may wish to include in their service contracts a provision that confirms that they do not need PHI to perform their functions and that their clients, who are covered firms or counterparties, do not provide PHI (or unencrypted PHI) to the business without the prior consent of the entity. If you engage a subcontractor and that contractor comes into contact with a PHI, you must perform a BAA between the two of you. The data protection rule stipulates that all counterparty contractors must agree to restrictions identical to those of the original counterparty. From award-winning HIPAA training to contracts and agreements, we can meet your needs so you can protect your business. BAAs comply with both HIPC rules and the obligation of liability between the two parties.
