ChiroTouch’S CTAcademy to Host “HIPAA Audits. Are You at Risk?” Webinar with Dr. Ty Talcott

San Diego, CA—March 8th, 2016—ChiroTouch™, the nation’s leader in chiropractic software, is pleased to announce the upcoming webinar “HIPAA Audits. Are You at Risk?” with Dr. Ty Talcott.  This webinar is scheduled to air live for one hour on March 10th, 2016, at 10:00am PST.

“Staying on top of the rules and regulations governing the security and privacy of patient records is important for every practice,” said Robert Moberg, CEO of ChiroTouch.  “We’re pleased to welcome Dr. Talcott as he shares his insight on what it takes to be HIPAA compliant so that any future audit is a relatively painless experience with minimal financial impact.”

“HIPAA has never bothered me before, so I think I’m ok.  I’m just going to stay below the radar!”  Burying one’s head in the sand and not knowing all of the standards one is required to meet for HIPAA may have worked in the past, however it won’t work now or in the future.  In the last four years, Washington DC has said, “it’s not a matter of if you get audited, but when!”

The recent Anthem insurance hack of 80 million individuals and the Blue Cross insurance hack of 22 million individuals really have healthcare administrators concerned.  There has just been an additional $4 million earmarked specifically to HIPAA for random physician office audits.  This—combined with the law that all funds collected from fines (under willful neglect) must go back into additional HIPAA enforcement—has created the perfect storm.  This is the reason Washington has stated, “if you think 2015 was the year of ICD 10, you will see 2016 as the year of HIPAA!!”

Join this webinar to learn how to be prepared for a HIPAA audit, including:

*  The appropriate HIPAA policy for taking charts home and accessing them electronically from outside the office
*  Business associate agreements—what are they and who do chiropractors need to have them with?
*  Patient testimonials—how to properly use them on a professional website and in social media
*  Risk Analysis checklists and ISARs—what are they?  Do chiropractors need them?

HIPAA fines are a growing concern for providers in 2016.  Don’t get caught unprepared.  Join CTAcademy and Dr. Talcott for this important webinar.

*Free ISAR (Information System Activity Review) log, verbiage and instructions for use for all attendees to the LIVE webinar.  This is a document that should be used in conjunction with one’s required HIPAA risk analysis (to be discussed during the webinar).
ChiroTouch offers two ONC certified EHR chiropractic software systems, one cloud-based and one on premise.  Both systems are designed from the ground up to maximize efficiencies for virtually every process, including patient self check-in, scheduling, SOAP notes, billing, interoffice communication, and more. ChiroTouch has developed its HIPAA-compliant systems to drastically reduce the time it takes to perform tasks that chiropractors are already doing, thus giving chiropractors more time to see more patients—resulting in increased referrals, improved efficiencies, and a direct, measurable impact on practice profitability.

Other recent webinar topics include “ICD-10: It’s a Marathon, Not a Sprint,” “The Secret Recipe to Grow Your Practice,” and “Keeping More of What You Make.”  The ChiroTouch webinar programs and the attendees have benefited from speakers such as Dr. David Jackson, Garrett Gunderson, Dr. Patrick Gentempo, Dr. Bob Hoffman, Dr. David Fletcher, and many more.  This cross-section of the most influential and recognized coaches and speakers has made for a very robust and popular series of webinars.
