Mintz Levin Law Firm Brief for Brokers/Consultants on HIPAA HITECH

Alden J. BianchiThe Industry Radar HITECH Webinar is on Thurs, 1/28 – register here.

Alden Bianchi from Mintz Levin a leading benefits and compensation firm in Boston has done a superb job on a briefing on HITECH for benefits brokers. Take a look. It only reinforces what we have been covering here in depth – ie you are a BA and as such need to comply…by the deadline…

From his brief: Conclusion

The Act has both raised and broadened the HIPAA compliance bar for business associates. Prior law gave business associates something of a free pass. That was—as they say—then. Among other things, business associate agreements will need to be reviewed and updated to comply with HITECH’s new rules, and employees with access to PHI will need to be trained. Covered entities and business associates should be aggressively moving to anticipate these rules and to comply with them even in the absence of guidance.”

Thanks Alden for sharing this with the benefits community.
