Medical records are one of the most sought after resources for identity thieves. Your medical facility must take great care in how you store and manage your patient files, and they must be thoroughly and destroyed in accordance with government guidelines.
HIPAA is very strict with the proper disposal of personal information (PHI). Medical record shredding includes a certificate of destruction for your HIPAA compliance records.
When to Shred Your Medical Files and Documents
There are three main times when your medical office will need to shred documents.
- Your documents, records, and other files with confidential client information has passed their required retention period
- Your office has just undergone a transition to electronic medical records and your medical records scanning procedure is complete
- There were clerical errors made while completing patient paperwork and a new one must be created or filed
