HIPAA survival: protect yourself from violations for anyone using medical billing software
Have you been limping along in your practice, doing well with your medical billing software, while not quite meeting the requirements for HIPAA laws and standards? Unfortunately, very significant changes have taken place which make this “head in the sand” approach not viable and unwise. At Easy Billing, Inc., we’d like you to know where you stand and to learn what you need to protect your practice from up to $50,000 in non-negotiable fines.
We’re pleased to announce that Easy Billing, Inc. is endorsing and will be sponsoring The HIPAA Guy, Dr. Ty Talcott of HIPAA Compliance Services. This is to bring what we feel is the best source on the market today that bring to you all of the information needed to avoid HIPAA violations or enforcement via fines. Learn more from Dr. Talcott about the threats that face practices who are not HIPAA compliant.
In the past, following basic compliance rules and good medical billing software may have seemed enough. But since 2013 compliance has changed and is requiring you to pay more attention, now more than at any time.
Easy Billing Inc.’s CEO and Founder, Marla Acton, recently met with Dr. Talcott at his Albuquerque, New Mexico seminar, where they were able to discuss HIPAA and what is coming down the road. Acton stated, “It was great to be present and witness how Dr. Talcott is helping serve the medical industry in an area where guidance is seriously needed at this time. The medical professions are facing many upcoming changes that they need to be made aware of in a timely fashion”.
According to Acton, “His conference was organized, his information well thought out, and his delivery funny, with stories to keep the attendees paying attention.”
Talcott teaches groups about HIPAA an average of 35 times a year and is a Certified HIPAA Privacy and Security Expert.

• A Full Risk Analysis (check-lists are not enough!)
• A three ring binder to build your HIPAA manual as you go

According to Dr. Talcott, many think that just the Privacy and Security Rule Training CD makes the system worth it: “Your team can sign an attendance sheet to go in your HIPAA compliance manual, listen, and be done. When you add to or make changes to your staff throughout the year, they can listen – without you having to do the whole training live. It also comes on the Forms CD, if you wish to deliver it live.”
