Patient and consumer privacy legislation such as FACTA and HIPAA have made it the law to securely dispose of medical records. In addition to being a legal requirement, secure document destruction protects your health care organization from lawsuits and public embarrassment, protects your patients from fraud and identity theft, saves you space, time and money and preserves doctor-patient confidentiality. With the widespread and increasing use of electronic records, all kinds of health care organizations are now finding it necessary to securely dispose of large quantities of old paper documents. At The Paper Depot, we're always up to date on the laws and regulations that affect the health care industry:
The Paper Depot has been in the document destruction business since 1981, providing secure and legally compliant shredding and media destruction services at affordable prices to clients across the health care industry. We will help your health care organization, large or small, become legally compliant and totally secure in addition to increasing your space and improving your efficiency.
We can customize a document destruction and recycling plan* to meet your organization's specific needs, and one that won't interfere with your day-to-day operations. We offer on-site and off-site document destruction services both on a regularly scheduled and one-time basis. For regularly scheduled document destruction, we provide locked consoles at no cost for you to keep at your facility and deposit your sensitive documents into. Then at the regularly appointed times, we will either securely transport the documents in locked containers back to our facility for destruction in our state of the art commercial shredder, or we will bring a shredding truck to your facility to destroy the documents on-site. In either case you may witness the destruction of your documents, and we will provide you with a certificate of destruction. For one-time or purge document destruction the same off-site or on-site options apply, as well as the ability to witness the document destruction and the receipt of a certificate of destruction.
Contact us today for additional information about our legal and secure document destruction services.
*Our paper recycling programs are only available to our document destruction clients.
We do not offer paper recycling as a standalone service.
