The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 and other federal regulations require that additional steps be taken to maintain and safeguard patient confidentiality. Following these regulations, Froedtert Health is required to identify entities that receive patient identifiable information as a result of providing products or services to our health care system. Those who meet the criteria are considered business associates and are required to sign a Business Associate Agreement before receiving any patient identifiable information.

If it has been determined that your company is required to have a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) on file with Froedtert Health, please request a copy of our current BAA template from your Froedtert Health contact.

Froedtert Health staff seeking a BAA template should submit a New BAA workflow via MediTract, Froedtert Health's contract lifecycle management system. If you don’t have access to MediTract, please contact your department director for next steps.
