Vendor Management in the Era of Big Data and Machine Learning

The digitization of patient records and push for interoperability has enabled unprecedented data sharing. The ability for researchers and care providers to analyze broad batches of data has improved care delivery and treatment. Covered entities are now turning to vendors with expertise in areas like billing, population health, readmission modelling, etc. to analyze their data sets. While there are many benefits from utilizing third-party vendors, there are additional risks that covered entities must understand when outsourcing data in order to have the proper policies and procedures outlined in their Business Associates’ Agreement.

  • Understand the risks that must be managed when outsourcing data to third-partyvendors - data mixing, machine learning model mixing, and data repurposing - and how to mitigate those risks.
  • Learn how to formulate Business Associate Agreements in the era of big data andmachine learning.
  • Examine different legal and technological processes to ensure vendors compliance withyour BAA, even if your vendor application is managed in the cloud.
