Business Associates and mobile health apps are subject to rising obligations and increasing scrutiny by privacy and security regulators. This comes as regulators issue new guidance, reevaluate the application of existing rules, and seek to issue new regulations. Entities are struggling to understand what is required to fulfill their compliance obligations and contractual requirements. With Business Associates having more direct relationships with patients, the application of the HIPAA privacy, security, and breach notification rules are not as straight forward as they once were. Mobile health apps that have not previously been required to address privacy or security requirements are facing mounting obligations.

  • Define the regulatory requirements of Business Associates under the new privacy and health data rules.
  • Identify regulatory trends from the U.S. Federal Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office for Civil Rights, and where the rules may be headed.
