Business Associate Contracts |

    A “business associate” is a person or entity, other than a member of the workforce of a covered entity, who performs functions or activities on behalf of, or provides certain services to, a covered entity that involve access by the business associate to protected health information.  A “business associate” also is a subcontractor that creates, receives, maintains, or transmits protected health information on behalf of another business associate.  The HIPAA Rules generally require that covered entities and business associates enter into contracts with their business associates to ensure that the business associates will appropriately safeguard protected health information.  The business associate contract also serves to clarify and limit, as appropriate, the permissible uses and disclosures of protected health information by the business associate, based on the relationship between the parties and the activities or services being performed by the business

MA Business – Mark Allen Group

The Mark Allen Group is committed to using environmentally friendly and sustainable materials, wherever possible.
Currently most of our magazines are posted using oil based recyclable plastic wrapping, which can be recycled (along with carrier bags)
at recycling points and with other household plastic in some local authorities. You may have noticed that some publishers have moved
their poly wrap to starch based plastic wrapping, which can be included with food waste and decomposes after 10 days in the correct environment.
However, it’s still unclear if this is a significant improvement on the current solution, as not all households compost food waste and a large number
of our items are sent to business addresses, where recycling using this method may not be practicable.

After extensive research, we have concluded that the best alternative to recyclable plastic wrapping is a paper-based alternative.
