MIPS Risk Assessment - What,How,Why

Each year a HIPAA risk assessment is required by your practice. It doesn't matter if you are not seeking MIPS or Meaningful Use money the HIPAA regulations require an annual risk assessment anyway.

MIPS and Meaningful Use simply tie your reimbursement money to accomplishing this already required risk assessment, as they are well aware you will probably ignore this requirement otherwise.

The risk assessment should not be "pencil whipped"; attorneys are licking their chops for a chance to come after medical offices that don't have their "HIPAA House" in order. What may start as an innocent mistake can quickly escalate to a huge settlement once an attorney gets involved and begins digging into the level of HIPAA compliance at your office.

The other threat is the CMS hired guns who look back over many years seeking areas where you may have dropped the HIPAA ball, all in an attempt to claw back money that has been paid to you. The risk assessment may feel like a big burden, but done correctly it is not a burden but a solid guideline to getting your practice to function in a more effective way.
