2.0 Revision History
3.0 Persons Affected
SUNY does not interpret our relationship as that of a business associate.
Accreditation requirements are still under consideration. If the requirement for business associate contracts with accreditors is not eliminated, the JCAHO will provide a uniform business associate addendum to its accreditation agreement for health care organizations. The JCAHO is continuing to strongly urge that this requirement be eliminated.
