Relationship with Covered Entities and PHI
Under the terms of each Business Associate and Subscription Agreement ("Agreement") by and between SafeKeeping and a Covered Entity, SafeKeeping provides services to Covered Entity that may involve Individually Identifiable Health Information constituting PHI. SafeKeeping's uses and disclosures of PHI and other actions under each Agreement are and shall be consistent with the Covered Entity's privacy policies, as stated in Covered Entity's notice, and which may be modified or altered by the Covered Entity from time to time.
To the extent SafeKeeping is authorized by the Agreement to disclose PHI to Authorized Users, Covered Entity must obtain, prior to making any such disclosure, reasonable assurances from the Authorized Users that the PHI will be held confidential as provided pursuant to the Agreement and only disclosed as required by law or for the purposes for which it was disclosed to such Authorized User, and an agreement from the third party to immediately notify SafeKeeping of any breaches of confidentiality of the PHI, to the extent it has obtained knowledge of such breach. The Covered Entity is required to obtain the necessary permissions and signatures to allow any third parties or Authorized Users to access any PHI through the Services provided by SafeKeeping.
SafeKeeping shall disclose to its subcontractors, agents or other third parties, and request from the Covered Entity, only the minimum PHI necessary to performing or fulfilling a specific required or permitted function. SafeKeeping will establish and maintain all appropriate safeguards to prevent any use or disclosure of PHI other than pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Agreement. SafeKeeping shall immediately report and document any security incidents/potential breaches regarding information received by it from Covered Entity.
SafeKeeping shall abide strictly by the administrative, technical, and security parameters set by Covered Entity and SafeKeeping, as the case may be. In the event of any conflict between administrative, technical, and security parameters set by Covered Entity and SafeKeeping, the parameters of Covered Entity shall control.
