Even if you do everything right, you can still get audited for HIPAA. Unfortunately, you can’t ever completely head off an audit. The best you can do is be prepared if the Feds choose you. Because going through a HIPAA audit unprepared will make it 100 times worse.
So, how can you be prepared for an audit? There are specific steps you can take that will significantly improve your chances of coming out of it unscathed. Nationally recognized certified HIPAA auditor, Brian L Tuttle, CPHIT, CHP, CHA, CBRA, CISSP, CCNA, has used his years of experience working directly with government auditors to provide you with a step-by-step HIPAA audit survival program that is proven to work.
Many practices don’t realize that HIPAA has grown over the years. It now consists of multiple rules: Privacy, Security, Enforcement and Breach Notification. Each of which require you to understand their requirements, and have specific plans in place.
Brian presented his HIPAA Audit Survival Program in a recorded online training session. By watching his 90-minute, information-packed webinar, you’ll receive easy-to-implement tools to protect yourself and your organization from negative audit results. Here are just a few of the practical tactics you’ll receive:

• Know when to fight a violation claim and when to pay, or you could make it worse
