Law firms with access to protected health information (PHI) may be classified as “business associates” under HIPAA rules and hence subject to privacy, security, and breach-notification requirements.  Failing to comply with HIPAA may subject you or your firm to monetary penalties and indemnification claims from clients if PHI is lost, mishandled, or stolen. Learn what steps your firm needs to take to protect PHI stored at your office, or on any personal or storage devices.
