If your business works with health care entities and you create, receive, maintain, or transmit HIPAA Protected Health Information (PHI) on behalf of those entities, you may be considered a HIPAA Business Associate, whether or not the required agreements are in place, and subject to the obligations imposed on such business partners by the HIPAA regulations. Certain activities can place a firm in a business associate relationship, and once that’s the case, there are compliance obligations that can lead to significant penalties if ignored.
