A BAA is a Business Associate Agreement. The HIPAA regulations call it a Business Associate Contract. They’re really the same thing.
BAAs satisfy HIPAA regulations, and create a bond of liability that binds two parties.
If one member violates a BAA, the other has legal recourse. If there’s no BAA or it’s incomplete, or if it gets violated, then both associates may find themselves in hot water with HIPAA and other FDA regulations.
You can generate a BAA within Adhere.ly under your Profile Settings.
