There is a common misconception that only medical offices and hospital staff are required to meet the rules and regulations outlined in HIPAA.
HIPAA applies to covered entities and business associates. Covered entities include the organizations that come to mind when you think of HIPAA compliance, such as healthcare and insurance providers. Identifying business associates can be a little trickier.
Examples of business associates might include:
- Medical equipment service companies
- Software companies that may be exposed to or use PHI
If your business is handling PHI, you likely need to be HIPAA compliant. We’re hosting a webinar to share how businesses like yours can gather data, create documents, and collect signatures while keeping PHI secure.
