Under the U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, a HIPAA Business Associate Agreement (BAA) is a contract between a HIPC-covered company and a DE LIPPA (BA) counterparty or downstream counterparty. The agreement protects personal health data (PHI) in accordance with HIPAA policies. [Option 2 – where the agreement authorises the counterparty to use or disclose protected health information for its own management and management or to exercise its legal responsibilities and the counterparty must retain protected health information for those purposes after termination of the contract] Ask them to sign a confidentiality agreement. We insert these points into the confidentiality agreements we offer to our clients: www.hhs.gov/hipaa/for-professionals/privacy/guidance/business-associates/index.htmlsearchsecurity.techtarget.com/definition/business-associatewww.mwe.com/en/thought-leadership/publications/2013/02/new-hipaa-regulations-affect-business-associates__www.hhs.gov/hipaa/for-professionals/covered-entities/sample-business-associate-agreement-provisions/index.html Whenever there is a counterparty relationship between the two parties, they are required to execute a BAA. (Note that a BAA does not need to be a stand-alone agreement. The necessary provisions can be included in terms of use, framework contracts, data security agreements, etc.) At Aptible, we receive many questions about HIPAA or “BAAs” counterparty agreements.

HIPAA requires covered entities to only collaborate with business partners who ensure full protection of PHI. These assurances must be in writing in the form of a contract or other agreement between the covered company and the BA.1 (a) Business Associate.

“counterparty” generally has the same meaning as the term “counterparty” in 45 CFR 160.103 and means in relation to the party to this Agreement [insert counterparty name]. Once covered companies, counterparties and counterparty subcontractors have identified their mutual relationships, it is necessary to ensure that third parties protect the PHI they receive. A signed agreement documents that the BA knows it must manage PHI safely.. . .
