What should you do if your vendor refuses to sign your Business Associate Agreement? Once you have completed the process of identifying vendors that would be considered a Business Associate as defined by HHS, it is important to get signed agreements in place. But what if the vendor refuses. In some cases, it is because the vendor is identified as a covered entity, and if that is the case, they will provide you evidence so you can update their status. Yet in some cases it is for a very different reason, one that needs serious consideration by your Compliance Officer. Check out the help desk question from this week that addresses this issue.
