"We feel like we can have a plan to move forward in tackling our policies"
Evan helped turn a very daunting and overwhelming process into something manageable and fairly painless. Now we feel like we can have a plan to move forward in tackling our policies
LICENSED CLINICAL SOCIAL WORKER/ DIRECTOR
"Worth the time and money investment."
I liked it was one on one. I was looking forward to this experience because I knew we had areas to improve on but struggled with where to go. I feel I have more knowledge to share with my other partners about why this is a process and not a destination. I hope to change our security culture in my office from saying “we have always done it this way” to “let’s minimize our risk and keep updating our policies”. Worth the time and money investment.
Jeffrey Weist, LICSW, RPT-S
"Evan made the process of reviewing our policies and compliance as painless as possible, balancing knowledge and talk of formal policies with laughter."
I could see a lengthy process like a risk assessment being extremely boring and dull. It’s probably one of the reasons it’s taken me so long to start this process. Evan made the process of reviewing our policies and compliance as painless as possible, balancing knowledge and talk of formal policies with laughter.

"It really helped me wrap my brain around all the angles to see it all at once and talk about it"
I was able to get a fly-over of all the aspects of my security systems and it helped me so much to have everything discussed in one sitting. It really helped me wrap my brain around all the angles to see it all at once and talk about it. I’d learned a lot about security from doing PCT trainings, listening to the podcast and office hours, but now I’ve got a representation of what I’ve learned and implemented and what I still need to do all documented in one place.
Brianna White, MS, LMFT
Definitely recommend! Make your load lighter by engaging in some laughs and discussion while assessing risk and planning for next steps.

It was very informative. The level of confidentiality you had in place was wonderful and allowed me to be completely open and honest about my questions.
"Walk through everything step by step and it was a huge help and honestly a relief to not have to re create the wheel on everything"
I guess as someone in my second year of private practice, I just wanted to ensure I was doing everything correctly and as securely as possible and not missing anything. Evan really helped me walk through everything step by step and it was a huge help and honestly a relief to not have to re create the wheel on everything. I love that I can now I have a thorough document I can use to update my progress and I can stay up to date by listening to office hours. PCT is my go to for anything HIPPA-related. It is nice to feel like there is an organization out there that I can trust to get this information from.
Melissa Wolfe, LCMHC, ATR, LMHC
I left feeling hopeful and motivated
This is a great tool for organizing an otherwise scary process into do-able steps. Evan was great. He has an excellent energy for approaching a HIPAA audit- validating, normalizing, and upbeat. I was dreading this deep dive into our practice’s policies, yet I left feeling hopeful and motivated to check some HIPAA tasks off the list.
Erin Hinek, LPC, CPCS

"Evan's background as a counselor definitely helped to reduce anxiety through normalizing and use of humor"
Evan was super helpful and disarming.

I am grateful for this service and will be recommending it to all of my colleagues.

"Even kind of fun"
PCT takes an overwhelming, boring, tedious, scary process and makes it attainable, simple, not that scary, and even kind of fun. I have tagged along PCT for a number of years. I haven’t found another business that has such high standards as well as a team of personable and knowledgeable staff. They are lifelong learners and they pursue excellence. I’m so glad that I’m working with them.

"Made the audit shockingly fun and very interesting"
Evan made the audit shockingly fun and very interesting. We learned a lot in the process and left feeling hopeful and empowered about improving our policies and procedures.
Dr. Angela Krumm
"A clear path forward"
This made a process that initially seemed pretty overwhelming very manageable! Not only did I get the assistance I needed with figuring out where my security weak spots are, but also a clear path forward for the changes I need to make in order to fix those issues.
Dr. Ansley Taylor Loveless, PhD.
"Useful to learn more about HIPAA agenda/priorities and implications for providers"
Very helpful re: specific information and reassurance. Useful to learn more about HIPAA agenda/priorities and implications for providers. Really liked the format of Evan taking the lead on going through the topics and questions, including which areas applied to my practice, and which did not.
