While the data of almost any organization is sensitive, nowhere is confidentiality more essential than in the world of medicine. Healthcare providers face stringent regulations when it comes to protecting patient information. They’re obligated to safeguard E-PHI (electronic protected health information), patient identity and payment methods all while remaining compliant with federal regulations:
-Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
-Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH)
-FACTA Disposal Rule
-Patriot Act of 2002
-PCI Data Security Standard
-Identity Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act
Ever-changing technology and devices that transmit E-PHI over networks make protecting patient information a topic that healthcare providers must stay on top of. Hospitals are targeted daily by hackers looking for personal information to resell on the black market. Few healthcare organizations or medical facilities specialize in data destruction and IT recycling. Yet, mishandling of e-waste and medical data could result in stiff penalties due to noncompliance with HIPAA and other laws designed to protect that information. It is essential to engage with a certified IT disposition company to permanently destroy any data and properly recycle medical equipment. Our certified data destruction services guarantee your patient’s information is safe and your organization is not held liable.
