The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 ( Section 13411 of the HITECH Act) requires HHS to consider Healthcare Business Associates like the healthcare covered entities. Business associates are required to comply with the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules and Breach Notification standards just like the covered entity they do business with.
More than 60% of the breach reported to HHS involves the business associates. If you come under the “Business Associate” category under ARRA, and want to learn more about HIPAA/HITECH compliance requirements for business associates, attend our 50-minute webinar.
