Medical Record Shredding
As a healthcare or medical facility, you are trusted by your patients to protect their confidential data. Their trust is crucial to your organization’s success. Not only is this privacy protection expected in the healthcare industry, it is the law. Luckily Seattle’s doctors and healthcare practitioners understand the importance of destroying medical records after they are no longer needed, and they are choosing PROSHRED® for their medical record shredding and destruction needs.
Seattle Medical Record Shredding & Destruction
Recent Changes to HIPAA regulations
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, more commonly referred to as HIPAA is a federal law that affects all healthcare and medical facilities in the United States. It requires any document containing PHI (protected health information) handled by a medical office be properly destroyed before it is disposed. HIPAA was enacted to mandate that medical records are held with the highest regard possible to protect patient privacy.
Recent changes to HIPAA regulations have put a higher emphasis on employee training for Covered Entities, such as medical clinics. This training must inform all employees, even volunteers, on how to properly dispose of PHI. If your company does not offer this professional training, you may face high mandatory fines.
