The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH Act), enacted as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, has significantly increased the liability of covered entities under HIPAA, and more broadly, their business associates.  Effective February 17, 2010, business associates are directly subject to HIPAA’s enforcement scheme.

This means that the HIPAA Administrative Simplification Security Rule applies to a business associate of a covered entity in the same manner that such sections apply to the covered entity.  Under the HITECH privacy provisions, the business associate now has direct responsibility and liability for a breach as does healthcare providers.  The Security Rule focuses on administrative safeguards, technical safeguards and physical safeguards, and it is important that business associates implement and maintain these safeguards in order to ensure they are compliant with the HITECH Act.
