Phase 2 HIPAA is here, and the Feds recently announced that audits are underway and “every covered entity and business associate is eligible for an audit” – this means YOU.
Remember that auditors get paid based on fines and penalties that they collect based on HIPAA violations they uncover. Considering that in the last 7-8 months HIPAA audits have generated $11 million in settlements, you can imagine how eager auditors are to get Phase 2 HIPAA audits underway.
So, how do you avoid being the next victim of HIPAA audit penalties?
That’s where HIPAA expert, Brian Tuttle, CPHIT, CHP, CHA, CCNA, CISSP, CBRA, can help. He has dedicated his career to helping healthcare providers, just like you, protect themselves from the massive fines that can result from even innocent HIPAA mistakes. Brian will share his HIPAA Phase 2 violation protection plan with you during his online training session. If you deal with private patient information in anyway, this session is for you.
Here are just a few of the proven HIPAA audit protection techniques you’ll receive by completing this practical, 60-minute online training:
- Set up an easy Risk Assessment document that will stand up against auditor scrutiny
- Surprise your HIPAA auditor with a simple, yet robust, risk management program
- Quickly identify business associates and pin down contracts to protect yourself
- Training documentation tactics that will hold up to even the toughest audit
- Avoid patient whistleblowers from getting you flagged for an audit
- Stop unnecessary HIPAA processes, not everything you read online is correct
- Uncover and resolve your biggest most costly risk factors
- Be ready to meet the 10-day response deadline should you receive an audit notification
- And so much more…
WARNING: HIPAA stage 2 affects everyone: Private practices, hospitals, billing companies, transcription companies, home health agencies, health insurance plans, ASCs, IT companies, attorneys, etc. – basically ANYONE that comes into contact with private patient information.
Obviously, auditors will start by going after “low hanging fruit.” So, your mission is to avoid being low hanging fruit, and take this time to ensure your HIPAA compliance is up to par. That way when they do get to you, they won’t be able to identify any significant violations and you can avoid paying their massive penalties.
It’s only a matter of time before a HIPAA Phase 2 letter ends up in your mail box. You can either wait until that happens to take action, or you can sign up for this step-by-step online training session to ensure you are prepared for anything that comes your way. Don’t wait, sign up today.

“Good program, well worth the hour!”
