This training course was specifically designed to meet the unique needs of the organizations, known as “business associates,” who contract with HIPAA-covered entities and health care providers. As a result of recent changes to HIPAA laws, business associates can be indirectly liable under the business associate contract or agreement and directly liable under HIPAA for violations. Such violations include, but are not limited to, failure to implement adequate safeguards and failure to adequately train employees who have access to or are likely to have access to, protected health information as a result of their job responsibilities with the business associate.
