CMS recently announced that under certain circumstances, healthcare providers are exempt from the requirement to complete a security risk analysis (SRA), while remaining eligible to benefit from the MIPS Quality Payment Program. However, healthcare providers must still complete an SRA to satisfy HIPAA requirements. So even if you qualify for the MIPS SRA exemption, you will still need to meet the HIPAA SRA requirement. Why you should complete an SRA now is discussed below.

Why You Should Complete an SRA Now

Complete an SRA Now

HIPAA requires healthcare organizations to complete an SRA annually, so healthcare providers that qualify for the MIPS SRA exemption will need to complete an SRA eventually. So why delay the inevitable? You shouldn’t. If you choose to delay completing your SRA, there’s a chance that you will entirely forget to submit your SRA and fail to meet the HIPAA SRA requirement. This is why you should complete an SRA now, while it is on your mind.
