MACRA, MIPS, and the Security Risk Assessment: What you need to know.

If you are a healthcare provider that accepts Medicare, then you have likely seen and heard the acronyms MACRA, MIPS, and EHR hundreds of times in 2017.

You may have chosen to attest to MIPS for the entire calendar year, or perhaps you are gearing up to begin reporting in the final 90 days of 2017. You also may have chosen to begin reporting in 2018. Whichever path you have selected, are you aware that before medical practices participate in MIPS they must prove that patient health information contained in EHR and elsewhere in their practice is protected by performing a security risk assessment (SRA)?
