How Can I Shred Medical Records?

Why Shred Your Medical Files And X-rays?

Medical Shredding in a matter of The Law! The recent Massachusetts privacy law changes that took effect in 2011 made it almost impossible for businesses to simply throw away their patients or the client’s documents in the trash. This new law requires all businesses that collect their customers and patient’s data i.e. names, phone numbers, Social Security numbers and addresses to safeguard this data until final destruction. Data breaches can cause small business to go bankrupt because of the high negative company reputation and liability exposures.

When it comes time to destroy old medical records or purge the office storage facility of old documents, small businesses are required to safely and securely shred these records to keep them away from the wrong hands. Federal laws like HIPAA requires medical firms and practices to shred these documents safely and protect the patient’s records through a third-party vendor and a verifiable process or face hefty fines.

Medical practices moving to electronic medical filing system to meet Obama Care create a long-term decrease in the amount of paper shredding they need to do. As your medical practice scans files to the computer system, the physical files become redundant and need to be shredded. This creates the short-term increase in the amount of shredding your practice will need to do. But of course, there is no need to archive most of the physical files, which would have ultimately needed to be shredded, which reduces the long-term volume of shredding associated with purging old records after retention requirements have been met.

We had tons of old medical records in our storage space in Needham MA, I was afraid that the shredding service will take us months to do or come at a high cost that my medical firm budget will take a big dent! You staff came in and cleaned out all of old X-rays, medical files and also shredded our medical faxes and hard drives. The best part was that the rate was very reasonable. I am glad to recommend you to anyone looking to shred Medical files on a budget.
