Thanks, Dr. Ty– it is great that you help us keep updated. Also, wanted to let you know that we passed our CMS Meaningful Use Audit in 2015. Your HIPAA program was instrumental in helping us meet all of the HIPAA requirements. We attended your course and purchased the HIPAA materials. Probably our best continued education decision ever!

Like the rest of the world I was looking forward to the ease and comfort of getting my HIPAA manual in electronic format, complete and customized to our office, with the purchase of your Silver program… but, I have to tell you that it was OVERWHELMING in electronic format and I was SOOOO glad when the hard copy arrived and I could “see” it, you were able to quickly walk me through how it all works and tell me the final tweaks to make.. what a god send this Silver program has been, especially now that I see the finished product and how much it entails— we would have never gotten there on our own!

I recently met with Dr. Talcott at his Albuquerque, New Mexico seminar, where he was able to discuss HIPAA and what is coming down the road. It was great to be present and witness how Dr. Talcott is helping serve the health care community. His conference was very organized, his information well thought out, and his delivery funny, with stories to keep the attendees paying attention.
We’re pleased to announce that Easy Billing, Inc. is fully endorsing The HIPAA Guy, Dr. Ty Talcott of HIPAA Compliance Services and his team. We feel they are definitely the best source on the market today, bringing to you all of the information needed to avoid the HIPAA violations or enforcements via fines. Dr. Talcott teaches groups about HIPAA an average of 35 times a year and is a Certified HIPAA Privacy and Security Expert.
The kit that Dr. Talcott has designed, and updates will truly help you to keep your compliance information organized which will reduce the stress of running your office in the dark. I think we are all fortunate to have Dr. Talcott and his team helping the health care professions and making it so much easier for everyone to get and keep compliant.

I just wanted to update you about our audit. We finally got word that we passed. They asked for no further clarification on the risk analysis than what I originally sent in. I ended up sending the paragraph form and the list form of the risk analysis as well as a cover letter per your recommendation. Thank you so much for your extra help talking to me after we got our audit letter, as well as the hipaa survival kit that I purchased last year. I know without it, the outcome would probably have been a lot different, as well as a whole lot more stressful.
Thank you again,

I just wanted to provide you with feedback in regards to the HIPAA Webinar that Ty gave last week.
I learned more about HIPAA with Ty, in that 60 minutes, then I’ve learned on my own in the 6 years I’ve been in the medical field as an Office Manager and as a designated HIPAA Compliance Officer.
I liked the fast paced nature of Ty’s presentation which created a richer more efficient use of my 60 minutes. (Which are precious minutes away from patient services and collections!)
There has been such an evolution with the requirements, that Ty helped bring us up to speed with the most recent changes, updates, and immediate threats to our clinic in regards to compliance.
Most importantly, Ty was able to take an overwhelming amount of regulatory data and break it down into digestible information and approachable steps as to ‘what do we really have to do with all this’…
Now with a broader understanding of what it will take for us to create our program, we are excited to get the KIT and have over half the work done for us already.
The Webinar was very motivating and gave me the confidence that we can use the KIT to create a program for our office that will protect us and give us the peace of mind to focus on patient care.

Whole Life Chiropractic’s Dr. Nicole Murphy and Kathy Hoff attended Dr. Ty Talcott’s HIPAA presentation at Cleveland Chiropractic School in November. We thought we were compliant with HIPAA regulations, and we were doing a lot of things right. That’s the good news! But what we didn’t know about what was expected for privacy and security was overwhelming. That was the bad news!
After purchasing Dr. Ty Talcott’s “HIPAA Survival Kit”, I immediately started going through the book and CD’s provided in the kit in the order recommended and found the process to be very systematic and easy to follow. By using the Survival Kit, I was able to break down an overwhelming project into easy step-by-step instructions. Yes, there was work to be done and discussions to be had in the office, but it was manageable. In fact, I enjoyed it.
We now know that our systems are much tighter, our policies and procedures are more complete, and that we are doing everything in our power to protect our patients’ information. Thanks, Dr. Talcott for sharing your knowledge.

Dr. Ty: I have great news today about our prepared response, relative to the random audit, for which I was chosen: I received a letter today that I have met the meaningful use criteria and passed the audit, for the HIPAA risk analysis, et. al… and I will get my check after all! Wow this is great news!
I want to thank you for your help in resolving this issue without me having a nervous breakdown! I hate this for the other Docs that are/will go through this- it is so unexpected when that notice arrives that you are going to be audited and it might mean you don’t get your check or worse, they might take back money they already gave you!
I encourage all Docs to follow your program, before they get a demand for their HIPAA compliant risk analysis, because, although one never knows what the government will accept; your program takes the guess work out of the equation!

I had previously attended a sixteen hour re-licensing seminar on HIPAA and Medicare Compliance. However, I learned more this past weekend from Dr. Ty Talcott at the HIPAA & PQRS class by the first break on HIPAA compliance than I did in the 16 hour class. For the first time, I have a clear understanding on how to create my HIPAA compliance manual. -Thank you, Dr. J. Kelly
I attended a HIPAA Compliance Services event and Dr. Talcott actually gave me hope instead of dread and fear! Thank you!!

Dr. Talcott, you are so helpful. I so appreciate your assistance. This “HIPAA Survival KIT” has been a life saver! –Denise Sorin C.A.
I can see why Dr. Talcott was so successful in practice. He has energy that is infective. His information is presented in a new, refreshing, and insightful way. All doctors need to attend and ‘catch the energy’! – Dr. John F
This BY FAR is the most exciting and motivating seminar that I have been to. The techniques and advice provided will greatly assist our clinic. very Refreshing! –Crystal B, C.A.
From the very beginning of his presentation Dr. Talcott presented a wealth of information with an energy and enthusiasm that was truly contagious. I would highly recommend this seminar to every doctor and his staff. -Dr. Richard GI thoroughly enjoyed this seminar. I feel this will help any doctor, seasoned or fresh out of school. Thanks Dr. Talcott! Dr. Ronny N Subject: Thank you from the SCCA Dear Dr. Talcott: Let me thank you for taking the time to address our attendees at the South Carolina Chiropractic Association’s Annual Convention in Myrtle Beach, S.C. this year. We had chiropractors from Ohio, New Jersey, West Virginia, and all over the Southeast who were all impressed with your presentation. We recognize the thought, effort, and preparation necessary for your instruction and thank you on behalf of the SCCA and all of our convention attendees. The Association would be proud to host you at our conventions and seminars in the future. Sincerely, Annie Wessinger, Esq. SC Chiropractic Association Dear Dr. Talcott- Let me first, thank you for taking the time to address our group at the annual spring conference and tradeshow. You are a dynamic speaker and our group thoroughly enjoyed you. There are times when the doctors show up to the seminars to take the required hours and go home. With your program they engaged in the presentation and participated in the discussions. It’s really hard to keep a group entertained for long periods of time, but you managed to do it. You’re the type speaker I would invite back over and over. We received lots of compliments on you and as the event coordinator, I like to hear that. Quality speakers are hard to find and you are definitely one of them! Sincerely, Terence E. Cherry Director member services Georgia Chiropractic Association
Missouri State Chiropractors Association To Whom it May Concern, Dr. Ty Talcott presented a 6-hour seminar on “HIPAA and Medicare Compliance” for the doctors of the Missouri State Chiropractors Association in May of this year. He was more than accommodating to work with, and we had no problems getting his hours approved though our board of examiners. On the day of the seminar, Dr. Talcott was very well received and presented this technical and complicated subject matter in a way that our doctors and their CAs could comprehend. They had good information to take back to their offices and use immediately. Finally, I would like to add, we would be pleased to invite Dr. Talcott back for another seminar. His information is well presented and invaluable to our doctors. Sincerely, Kathleen S. Wilcoxson, MPA Executive Director
“Everyone should be required to go to this, we never learned even 5% of this in school.” -Minnesota attendeeDear Dr. Talcott: I just wanted to send a note of thanks to you for speaking at our conference. Of all the sessions and speakers, you made the most impact for the weekend. I would encourage every state Association to bring you to share chiropractic needs with their doctors. Yours in health, John M. Hoeffner, B.S., D.C., B.C.A.O. Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic THANKS Ty for coming onsite to my clinic and helping with our HIPPA obligations. HIPPA had been in the past a real pain and I did it out of necessity. It had no “good feelings” surrounding it. I don’t know how you did it exactly but you made HIPPA fun. Gradually that very large fist sized knot of frustration and fear over office management and compliance has been reduced in my mid section…. Yes! business has began to pick up as we implement that list of recommended changes. I want to thank you also for the personal time “skull sessions” that so helped me by getting my thinking turned around. Dr. Ken Mansfield Abilene TX. P.S. Feel free to tell anyone to call me as to our experience here with your service.
“Ty, I have been seeing some growth, since your October ‘on-site’ –in both money in the bank and service rendered. Who knew HIPAA training could actually be done in such a way as to build the practice! Dr. Dale M.
Excellent! This webinar was concise, accurate and to the point. I would suggest that future webinars be done on all of the needed audits! Thank you! Sean Wahl, DC, CCSP“ I have much more self confidence regarding establishing policies and procedures instead of constantly doubting my abilities. I am immediately putting these tools and techniques to full use! Renee G, C.A. I would like to thank Dr. Talcott for such a great program. It’s well worth it! Lilian E, C.A. “I want to thank you for your time, energy, and efforts on behalf of the TCA. I GREATLY appreciate the work you are doing to assist ALL chiropractic doctors. You have put a great deal of yourself into this and I truly believe that your program will be a significant spark to help the chiropractic profession on the path to successful excellence. Dr. Chris D.
