What is HIPAA?
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, also known as HIPAA, is a US federal law that protects sensitive patient health information (“PHI”) from being disclosed without the patient's consent or knowledge. Companies that handle any form of PHI must ensure the necessary security protocols are in place and being followed.
Who does HIPAA apply to?
HIPAA applies to Covered Entities and their business associates who provide services to them and who process or handle e-PHI / PHI. Any business associate of a HIPAA-covered entity is required to sign a HIPAA-compliant business associate agreement (“BAA”) – a contract that details the elements of HIPAA Rules that the business associate must comply with.
Does AVOXI offer a business associate agreement?
If you are a Covered Entity and if AVOXI will handle or process e-PHI, then AVOXI will provide a BAA at the start of service.
