I recently joined a healthcare company to set up and run its contract management function. While I have lots of contract management experience. The nuances of health care contract management are new to me. We have a lot of Business Associates Agreements (BAAs). Our team asks me for a new every time they start talking to a potential vendor or provider.
I would like a better understanding of a BAA, but I also need to know when a Business Associates Agreement is required and once executed, how do I track it.
