GoToMeeting and the Business Associate Agreement

We’ve previously talked about how a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) is a written contract between a Covered Entity and a Business Associate. It is required by law for HIPAA compliance to ensure security and privacy.

We checked the GoToMeeting site and found a page called GoToMeeting and HIPAA Compliance.

In it, GoToMeeting points out:

Because of the technical and security measures employed by the service, when used properly, GoToMeeting can help covered entities fulfill their HIPAA compliance obligations.

The page also states that GoToMeeting is willing to sign a Business Associate Agreement.

Does GoToMeeting Offer HIPAA Compliant Service?

The Business Associate Agreement is a key component to HIPAA compliance between a Covered Entity and a Business Associate.

Since GoToMeeting offers a BAA, we conclude it is a HIPAA compliant service.

Conclusion: GoToMeeting is HIPAA Compliant and adheres to regulatory compliance for healthcare providers and healthcare organizations.

Make sure you sign a BAA with GoToMeeting before using it to store or transmit any PHI.
