Healthcare providers and medical professionals have a unique responsibility in protecting the personal information of their patients. Every member of a medical office is entrusted with safeguarding these confidential records against unwarranted intrusion. Document destruction shouldn’t be an afterthought in the medical field, but an integral part of your practices, policies and operations
Across the country, healthcare organizations are required by federal and state laws to securely handle Protected Health Information (PHI) with the utmost professionalism and care. National regulations like the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and a handful of New Jersey statutes mandate your office’s compliance with these rules. According to these standards, all information must be properly destroyed prior to disposal.
Changes to HIPAA put a great deal of emphasis on Covered Entities, meaning that healthcare services must train their entire staff on proper document destruction. Failures to comply with these standards result in hefty mandatory fines from the state of New Jersey, as these violations are considered willful neglect.
