How Confident Are You in Your Business Associates’ HIPAA Compliance Efforts?
You are trusting that vendors will protect sensitive data with the same fervor as you would, but in the event they are not, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) could come knocking on your compliance door.
The primary goal of business associate management is not to add another layer to your already full work load, but rather it is a way to have a well-documented process that you can utilize to assist in determining your (and your business associate’s) level of risk.
Watch this presentation for practical, actionable advice and approaches to managing your business associate program.

Most BAs and their Agents/Subcontractors are not compliant and many don’t know where to start. Do you?
Clearwater Compliance offers solutions to help Business Associates meet their compliance obligations.
I have enjoyed participating in several HIPAA/HITECH webinars hosted by Bob Chaput with Clearwater Compliance, LLC.
The Webinars have been extremely professional and very specific in regards to assisting organizations meet the various applicable HIPAA Privacy and Security regulatory compliance requirements. After each webinar, I have been extremely impressed that Bob has personally followed up with me to see if the webinar was helpful, met my needs, and if I had any follow up questions or suggestions. Bob is very professional, polite, very customer focused, takes pride in the work, expertise and reputation of his organization!
Mr. Chaput’s webinars regarding HIPAA and HITECH compliance in the health-care industry have proven very helpful in helping me guide the hospital I contract for through the muddy waters of creating an information security program. With his website, AboutHipaa.com, I have found many valuable resources that have helped get our hospital where it is today, fully compliant to the HIPAA security rule and HITECH.
I think very highly of Clearwater Compliance. I have been impressed by the professionalism and friendliness of you, Lori, and the others on the Clearwater team. I am also impressed by the myriad information resources available through your website
