Business Associate Agreement - 09.09.2013

TO: All of our valued Business Associates
DATE: September 9, 2013
 
As a valued client of Schuster Driscoll, LLC, we would like to take the time to update you on an important change to Title XIII, Subtitle D of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 which was passed into law in February of 2010. This Act contains numerous provisions affecting the obligations of Covered Entities and Business Associates with respect to the privacy and security of Protected Health Information as defined under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 2006 ("HIPAA"). Per the final ruling, a new Business Associate Agreement needs to be executed.
What does this mean to you?
Schuster Driscoll, LLC takes the privacy of its clients (Business Associates) and their employees very seriously. We want to assure you that we take the necessary steps to protect and secure any and all data. Among other things, these provisions - which are collectively known as the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (or "HITECH") - make Business Associates directly subject to the HIPAA Security Standards, and require Covered Entities to include certain provisions in their Business Associate Agreements that relate to notifications to individuals regarding certain PHI breaches. To that end we ask that all of our Business Associates take the time to review the attached Business Associate Agreement (The Final Rule) which outlines our responsibility to you - our valued client.
 
What do you have to do?
In light of this compliance deadline of September 23, 2013, by September 20, 2013 please take the following actions:
1. Review the Business Associates Agreement
2. Fill in your name on page 1 [highlighted area];
