Business Associate Agreements

New Customers of Therap will occasionally ask us to sign the provider’s drafted or created HIPAA Business Associate Agreements or similar documents. These Business Associate Agreements have been developed by attorneys across the United States and the legal language and content does very significantly from provider to provider. Many providers are unaware that the Therap User Agreement does already contain a complete Business Associate Agreement, which has been developed and reviewed and agreed to by hundreds of agencies and states governments.

Testifying before Connecticut's Human Services Committee

Today I had the honour and privilege to testify before the State of Connecticut’s Human Services Committee.

I was talking to the committee about “AN ACT TO PROVIDE INCENTIVES FOR HOSPITALS TO ADOPT ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORDS

Basically the proposed bill encourages the state to obtain ARRA funding for Hospitals implementing Electronic Health Records.

My point, quite simply, was that the state should make sure that these funds are available to developmental disability providers.

My submission was as follows:

HL7Customer Support Blog
