Course Content Example 1:

Business Associate: Definition

A Business Associate (BA) is a person or entity, other than a member of the workforce of a CE, who performs functions or actives on behalf of, or provides certain services to, a CE that involve access by the BA to PHI.

A Subcontractor of a BA that creates, receives, maintains, or transmits PHI on behalf of another BA is now considered to be a BA and must comply with all HIPAA rules.

BAs must now have a contact in place with their subcontractors and that contract must be a stringent as the one between BAs and CEs.

Course Content Example 2:

HHS Enforcement and Penalties for Breach

HHS Penalty Structure

  • Changes in the HIPAA Final Rule, January 23, 2013, strengthen the HITECH Breach Notification requirements by clarifying when breaches of unsecured PHI must be reported to HHS.
  • HHS is required to conduct a formal investigation and impose civil monetary penalties in cases involving willful neglect. Based on culpability, fines range from $100 to $50,000 per violation with a cap of $1.5 million on violations of identical provisions happening with the same calendar year.
