Business Associate

HIPAA requires health care providers to enter into "business associate" contracts with certain businesses to which they disclose patient health information. These business associate contracts generally require the recipients of such information to use appropriate safeguards to protect the patient health information they receive. To perform certain service and support functions, In2sight LLC personnel may need access to patient health information maintained by its customers. As a result, In2sight LLC may be considered a "business associate" of customers to whom it provides such services.

In2sight LLC’s business associate agreement will assure its customers that the company will use patient information obtained from them to provide services and support only and will safeguard that information from misuse.
