Medical Records Shredding and Pharmaceutical Document Destruction

Few sectors involve more personal information than the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry. Doctors and practitioners depend on accurate records to provide the highest quality care to their patients. Patients, in turn, rely on physicians and other healthcare professionals to protect their personal health information. And in addition to patient files, medical practices and pharmaceutical companies also maintain:

  • Financial documents
  • Employee records
  • Sensitive proprietary information

With privacy regulations becoming more stringent and identity theft on the rise, maintaining confidentiality within this sector has never been so critical.

Reducing risk for the medical and pharmaceutical industry

At the end of the day, it’s important to consider the safety and security of all records. Improper document disposal practices present a tremendous risk to medical and pharmaceutical organizations. A single, high-profile breach can result in:

  • Exorbitant breach notification costs
  • Regulatory non-compliance
  • Loss of customer and shareholder confidence
  • Lawsuits
  • Negative publicity
  • Damaged reputation and brand

Therefore, it’s critical to be able to ensure your shredding practices mitigate any consequences to your business.
