As the healthcare industry moves further into the digital age, traditional paper based medical records are quickly becoming obsolete. Many healthcare providers have made the switch and transferred their medical records into Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems.
Once the records have been digitized, practices are faced with the question of what to do with their old paper charts. By law, you cannot simply throw away medical records and the private information they contain. Storing the old records is problematic as well, as it requires the use of valuable space and is not cost effective.
Utilizing the team at Shred Medical Records will allow your practice to dispose of this sensitive information with the utmost security. We handle the disposal process from start to finish, picking up the old records from your facility and transferring them to our secure facility where they are shredded according to HIPAA standards.
