CONSIDERING, Business Associate is active in providing a convenient online management product (“Offer”); And in the event that Business Associate finds that the return or destruction of protected health information is not possible, Business Associate provides the insured unit, within ten (10) working days, with an opinion on the conditions that make restitution or destruction unfeasible.
