Protecting the privacy of patients is imperative for the healthcare and medical professional industry.
Patients trust their most sensitive health and personal information with healthcare providers, and that information needs to be protected diligently.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requires that medical records are properly destroyed. The Act states that all United States health care organizations must “maintain reasonable and appropriate, technical, and physical safeguards to prevent intentional or unintentional use or disclosure of protected health information.”
Confidata’s Role: we help our clients establish and maintain an internal system to assure your shredding and disposal meets HIPAA requirements. We can shred right on your premises, giving you the option to watch the shredding with our mobile shred trucks. We offer a variety of sizes of lockable containers to have at your location that assure confidential files are safe in between scheduled shredding. We also provide you with a Certificate of Destruction for each shredding job.
