January 3rd, 2018

Covered entities must ensure that they have a current HIPAA BAA in place with each of their partners to maintain PHI security and overall HIPAA compliance.
As healthcare data usage and collection continues to grow, and interoperability between systems, vendors, and partners increases, HIPAA covered entities will need to form partnerships with these partners and vendors to ensure the security of their data assets.
