How does this apply to a Health Care Industry Representative?

•The answer to this question will vary.
•Each Health Care Industry Representative (HCIR) and their employer need to determine if they meet the criteria of a Covered Entity or Business Associate
•Often pharmaceutical and medical sales representatives do not need access to Protected Health Information (PHI) for their routine activities and therefore would not be subject to HIPAA legislation
•Yet, if pharmaceutical or medical device company does require access to PHI, it will be subject to HIPAA legislation
•For example, if a medical device company conducts a patient outcome analyses for a physician group, they would be acting as a Business Associate and should have a Business Associate Agreement.
•HCIRs may also have incidental exposure to PHI as part of their job duties
•For example, a sales rep working in the OR may overhear some confidential patient information, so it is important to understand how to protect the privacy of this information
•More will be covered on incidental exposure on a later slide
