On Premise Interface Software Developer and Consulting and BAA's

I work for a software manufacturer that produces software that interfaces our customers various clinical systems to their EHR's and other applications. We do not store, maintain, transmit or manage PHI for our customers. We do configure their HIT interfaces that manage, transmit and modify PHI. Our technicians also routinely see PHI as they are helping customers troubleshoot issues and perform configuration changes.


Do we need to have BAA's in place with our customers? We are trying to determine if we fall into the scope of the requirements for BAA's in this case.
