What is secure document shredding?

Secure document shredding is the appropriate destruction of sensitive information regarding a patient’s care that is no longer needed to be maintained by a medical practice.

Why is secure document shredding important?

The documents located in medical practices contain private patient information that must be disposed of by a professional company in order to ensure that it’s protected from theft. Medical documents must be thoroughly destroyed in a manner that doesn’t allow for them to be pieced together and most consumer paper shredders don’t have cross-cut capabilities. All of this falls in line with maintaining HIPAA compliance, a must for your practice to survive.
