NAID Webinar on HITECH BA Agreement Rated Success

Bookmark and Share

According to a survey of the 100-plus firms who participated in the recent NAID webinar explaining NAID’s new HIPAA/HITECH Business Associate contract, members valued the experience and want more.  Over 97% of respondents reported that they would like NAID to provide more educational opportunities in the future. 

Webinar planners aren’t that surprised by the favorable evaluations given that Kirk Nahra, the webinar presenter and author of the revised HIPAA/HITECH Business Associate Contract, is one of the most highly-regarded privacy attorneys in the country.  Mr. Nahra’s involvement is the same reason that NAID expects the healthcare industry to seek out the new contract. 

While most healthcare Covered Entities are aware of the HITECH amendments requiring a new BA Contract, many are unaware of what it should contain and will be extremely interested in NAID’s new model. 

NAID will release the new HIPAA/HITECH Business Associate Contract to all NAID Active and Franchise Members free-of-charge on September 1st.  As with the previous BA Contract provided to members over the last 6 years, the revised BA Contract is a component to the General Service Contract.  The Standard Contract Release will be required prior to issuance of the revised BA Contract.
