HIPAA Document Shredding

HIPPAA Compliant Shredding Services


The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) states that all healthcare providers, also known as “covered entities,” must dispose of “protected health information” (PHI) safely. This means that medical record shredding must be done for labeled prescription bottles, hospital ID bracelets, and more, before being placed in a dumpster or garbage can. Even if you’re closing your practice, you can’t abandon your patients’ PHI or dispose of it in dumpsters without destroying them properly. Medical records shredding from FileShred is your answer.
