Hi. This is Dave Kats, a therapist consultant, and I have a tip for you. I go through seasons of what I call slipping and checking. In other words, my office procedure goes along well for a while, and then I slip. I started doing some things not right. Then I realize it and I check myself and I get back to doing them right again. This is our season of slipping and checking. One of the things I found that I had slipped on a little bit was not getting business associate agreements like I should.
Remember, HIPAA has a rule that anybody that comes in to do work for you, a business associate, in other words, that has a chance to see your PHI, your personal health information from the patients, they have to sign a business associate agreement. Now, there's a few people that don't have to do that. The funnels like the post office or the bank doesn't have to do it. The bank is a financial institution. They don't have to do it. The post office is a funnel, they don't have to do it.
