HIPAA toolbox: identifying business associates under HIPAA

HIPAA Toolbox

This tool is designed to help determine who falls within the definition of a Business Associate (BA) under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and is based on the HIPAA Omnibus Final Rule, generally accepted legal principals and guidance issued by the US Department of Health and Human Services. Unique facts, circumstances and applicable state law must be considered in making any decisions.
