In particular, the law requires you to sign a counterparty agreement before any work is done. Failure to do so could be a costly mistake. Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason, the counterparty shall return to the covered entity any protected health information obtained by the covered entity or established, maintained or received by a counterparty on behalf of the covered entity [or, if approved by the covered entity], that it still maintains in any form. Counterparties do not keep copies of protected health information. The BAA transfers the legal risk from the covered entity to the counterparty. A company that signs the BAA and is not a “counterparty” is still subject to contractual liability, restrictions on data publication, compliance fees with legislation and penalties for non-compliance – risks that can be discussed with a lawyer. (e) [optional] Counterparties may use protected health information for the proper management and management of the counterparty or to fulfil the counterparty`s legal obligations. . . .
