Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA):

HIPAA requires that all hospitals, doctors, pharmacies, health plans, medical billing companies and any other business entity involved in the healthcare industry must comply with HIPPA rules and standards. The rules apply to all protected health information.

Chances are that if you are governed by HIPAA rules then you are collecting and storing large amounts of protected health information. There is going to come a time when you need to get dispose of them, But how?

The Standard for Privacy of Identifiable Health Information requires that covered entities put in place administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect the privacy of protected health information. An example given as a safeguard for the proper disposal of paper documents containing protected health information is that the documents be shredded prior to disposal.

Our chain of custody and destruction process is designed to safe guard the information entrusted to you and see that it is properly destroyed. Once all documents have been destroyed we will issue you a Certificate of Destruction for your records showing your compliance with this important legislation.
