Medical Record Shredding
PROSHRED® San Francisco Bay Area Shredding
A growing concern for healthcare providers in San Francisco and nationwide is ensuring the privacy and safety of the patients in their care. Medical records provide would-be thieves with a wealth of private information and this information is offered at a premium on the black market. PROSHRED SFBA understands the challenges of protecting private information and complying with federal and state regulations. We are working to continually provide support for our clients in the health care industry.
In response to the growing issue of breaches in private medical records, federal and state legislation has been written to protect the privacy of the individual patient. Private patient information known as “Protected Health Information (PHI) must be handled with extreme care and confidentiality. Further, Federal legislation, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability (HIPAA), provides specific regulations for protecting private information including how to properly shred and dispose of any PHI, medical records and charts.

Current Privacy And Shredding Legislation Questions?
Health Care professionals who neglect to comply with HIPAA regulations run the risk of ruining the reputation of their practice while compromising the privacy of their patients.
