  • Accounting Rights. Within ten (10) days of notice by you of a request for an accounting of disclosures of Protected Information, we and our agents or subcontractors shall make available to you the information required to provide an accounting of disclosures to enable you to fulfill your obligations under the Privacy Rule, including, but not limited to, 45 C.F.R. § 164.528, and your obligations under the HITECH Act, including but not limited to 42 U.S.C. § 17935(c). We agree to implement a process that allows for an accounting to be collected and maintained by us and our agents or subcontractors for at least six (6) years prior to the request. However, accounting of disclosures from an Electronic Health Record for treatment, payment, or health care operations purposes are required to be collected and maintained for only three (3) years prior to the request, and only to the extent we maintain an electronic health record and are subject to this requirement. At a minimum, the information collected and maintained shall include, to the extent known to us: (i) the date of the disclosure; (ii) the name of the entity or person who received PHI and, if known, the address of the entity or person; (iii) a brief description of the PHI disclosed; and (iv) a brief statement of the purpose of the disclosure that reasonably informs the individual of the basis for the disclosure, or a copy of the individual’s authorization, or a copy of the written request for disclosure.

For subsequent accountings within a twelve (12) month period, we may charge the individual or party requesting the accounting a reasonable fee based upon our labor costs in responding to the request and a cost-based fee for the production of non-electronic media copies, so long as we inform the individual or requesting party in advance of the fee and the individual or requesting party is afforded an opportunity to withdraw or modify the request. We shall notify you within five (5) business days of receipt of any request by an individual or other requesting party for an accounting of disclosures. The provisions of this Section 2.8 shall survive the termination of this BAA.

  • Governmental Access to Records. We shall make our internal practices, books and records relating to the use and disclosure of Protected Information available to you and to the Secretary for purposes of determining our compliance with the Privacy Rule.

  • Minimum Necessary. To the extent feasible in the performance of services under the Agreement, we (and our agents or subcontractors) shall request, use, and disclose only the minimum amount of Protected Information necessary to accomplish the purpose of the request, use, or disclosure. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties agree that based on the nature of the services provided to you by us under the Agreement, we may be unable to determine what constitutes "minimum necessary" under HIPAA, and thus we shall be entitled to rely on your direction as to what constitutes "minimum necessary" with respect to the access, use, or disclosure of Protected Information in our possession or under our control.

  • Permissible Requests by You. You shall not request that we to use or disclose PHI in any manner that would not be permissible under HIPAA or the HITECH Act if done by you or us. You shall not direct us to act in a manner that would not be compliant with the Security Rule, the Privacy Rule, or the HITECH Act.

  • Breach Pattern or Practice If either party knows of a pattern of activity or practice of the other party that constitutes a material breach or violation of such other party’s obligations under this BAA or other arrangement, the first party must take reasonable steps to cure the breach or end the violation. If the steps are unsuccessful, the first party must terminate the applicable Agreement to which the breach and/or violation relates if feasible, or if termination is not feasible, report the problem to the Secretary.

  • Term and Termination.

  • Term. The term of this BAA shall be effective as of the Effective Date and shall terminate when all of the PHI provided by you to us, or created or received by us on your behalf, is destroyed or returned to you.

  • Termination.

  • Material Breach by Us. Upon any material breach of this BAA by us, you shall provide us with written notice of such breach and such breach shall be cured by us within thirty (30) business days of such notice. If such breach is not cured within such time period, you may immediately terminate this BAA and the applicable Agreement.

  • Effect of Termination. Upon termination of any of the agreements comprising the Agreement for any reason, we shall, if feasible, return or destroy all PHI relating to such agreements that we or our agents or subcontractors still maintain in any form, and shall retain no copies of such PHI. If return or destruction is not feasible, we shall continue to extend the protections of this BAA to such information, and limit further use of such PHI to those purposes that make the return or destruction of such PHI infeasible.

  • Compliance with State Law. Nothing in this BAA shall be construed to require us to use or disclose Protected Information without a written authorization from an individual who is a subject of the Protected Information, or without written authorization from any other person, where such authorization would be required under state law for such use or disclosure.

  • Amendment to Comply with Law. Because state and federal laws relating to data security and privacy are rapidly evolving, amendment of the Agreement or this BAA may be required to provide for procedures to ensure compliance with such developments. We and you shall take such action as is necessary to implement the standards and requirements of HIPAA, the HITECH Act, the Privacy Rule, the Security Rule and other applicable laws relating to the security or confidentiality of PHI. Upon the request of either party, the other party shall promptly enter into negotiations concerning the terms of an amendment to this BAA embodying written assurances consistent with the standards and requirements of HIPAA, the HITECH Act, the Privacy Rule, the Security Rule or other applicable laws. Either party may terminate the applicable Agreement upon thirty (30) days written notice in the event (i) the other party does not promptly enter into negotiations to amend the Agreement or this BAA when requested by the first party pursuant to this Section or (ii) the other party does not enter into an amendment to the Agreement or this BAA providing assurances regarding the safeguarding of PHI that the first party, in its reasonable discretion, deems sufficient to satisfy the standards and requirements of applicable laws, within thirty (30) days following receipt of a written request for such amendment from the first party.
