1.2. "Consideration" generally has the same meaning as "consideration" in 45 CFR 160.103 and means OHMD in relation to a portion of this Counterparty Agreement. The counterparty agreement is necessary by HIPAA to allow a third party (3rd) party ("counterparty") to access a medical practice`s protected health information (PHI) ("Covered Entity"). It describes the rules under which personal health records may be shared in accordance with federal law. After authorization, the counterparty is responsible for protecting all protected health information shared with specific instructions in the event of a security breach. The business partner is strictly forbidden to sell prohibited health information or use it for underwriting. WHEREAS: the purpose of this Agreement is to take the steps that the Counterparty must take to protect the confidentiality of certain individually identifiable health information that the Covered Entity may disclose to the Counterparty or that the Counterparty may create, receive, maintain or transmit on behalf of the Entity or its affiliated undertakings in connection with the service, repair, troubleshooting and maintenance activities related to the products identified in medical.olympusamerica.com/baaproducts (the "Services"). This Agreement applies only if and to the extent that Olympus is a "counterparty" (as defined in paragraph 45 C.F.R. § 160.103) of the covered company. (3) enter into a HIPC-compliant counterparty agreement with each counterparty.
CONSIDERING that the parties have previously entered into certain agreements ("agreements") for the provision of services (which may include transaction services and the maintenance of hardware and/or software products) ("Services") that involve the use and/or disclosure of protected health information; and question: I have an answering machine store and we never hear medical information, just a patient`s name and number for a reminder. Doesn`t this mean that we do not receive protected health information and are therefore not business partners, but only a normal supplier? Where a counterparty/processor infringes or infringes a BAA, the covered entity must take appropriate measures to remedy the infringement or to bring the infringement to an end. "If such measures fail, they must terminate the contract or agreement," HHS explains. "If termination of the contract or agreement is not possible, a covered organization is required to report the problem to the HHS Office for Civil Rights." 1 Finally, non-compliance with the requirements of an agreement by a counterparty/subcontractor can have a significant impact: first, we will look at the role of the covered company. It is the person who intends to allow another person to access and act with their medical records. Enter the first name, center name, and last name of the covered entity in the first blank line. This name must be indicated exactly as it appears on the official ticket of the covered company. Now we need to name the person (Business Associate) who has access to the medical records of the company covered under the Health Portability and Accounting Act, 1996. . . .
