Our shredding services help you manage and destroy your documents, so sensitive information never falls out of your control. If you’re a healthcare professional, you’ll know that protecting the privacy of protected health information (PHI) and the security of medical records is a major priority because laws like the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) demand PHI protection and impose hefty fines for noncompliance.
According to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), a properly destroyed medical record or piece of PHI is defined as being rendered “unreadable, indecipherable, and otherwise unable to be reconstructed”.
With this in mind, businesses that maintain secure data need to safeguard its disposal and follow HIPAA mandated requirements for the proper destruction of medical records. This doesn’t mean throwing them in a dumpster! So, what actually is HIPAA compliant medical records shredding? What employee records need to be securely destroyed?
