The HITECH Act’s expansion of the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rule requirements to any contractor or vendor that handles the protected health information of a covered entity profoundly changed the dynamic between healthcare providers and their business associates. In this new environment, providers must hold their vendors more accountable for information assurance.

This presentation will review these regulatory changes and shed light on what must change in the relationship between covered entities and business associates. It will review strategies and highlight best practices to ensure that these business partners understand how to develop an effective, compliant relationship that ultimately improves the security of patient information. Attendees will learn how to establish a lifecycle vendor management system to create a successful partnership with business associates.

Key takeaways:

  • Explain regulatory changes that impact the dynamic between healthcare providers and business associates.
  • Identify strategies providers can use to improve vendor selection and management for compliance.
  • Describe a five-step life cycle approach for managing vendor security requirements.
