Medical Records Shredding in D.C., Maryland and Northern Virginia
Increasingly stringent security, privacy and compliance measures require health care organizations to adhere to strict guidelines when disposing of medical records. TrueShred provides Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)-compliant data destruction services that you can trust to shred sensitive information properly and securely.
TrueShred offers both on-site and off-site medical document shredding to serve the unique needs of health care organizations from private practices to hospital systems, and everywhere in between. Both options provide HIPAA-compliant shredding procedures to ensure informational security and give you peace of mind.
On-Site Medical Shredding Services
TrueShred’s recurring secure shredding services for medical companies, private practices, hospitals, etc., are designed for medical organizations with an ongoing document destruction need. Our shredding trucks will come to your facility for one-time services or weekly, biweekly or monthly recurring services depending on your requirements. A uniformed service technician will securely transport the files to the onsite shredding truck which completely destroys the material right there, curbside.
Many TrueShred customers prefer this process because it saves time and labor. It also ensures an unbroken chain of custody since the documents never leave the premises.
Off-Site Record Shredding Services
Does your health care facility need to destroy bulk quantities of documents at the end of the retention period? Shredding records off-site provides a convenient, cost-effective solution. Our trucks will come to your facility, pick up your storage containers and securely transport them to our Manassas, VA, secure destruction facility. You can also drop off the documents if you prefer, for a more cost-effective option.
Highly trained, professional TrueShred team members use industry-leading destruction equipment to safeguard your patients’ personal health information. We complete the entire process in-house, eliminating chain of custody concerns.
What Makes TrueShred a HIPAA-Compliant Shredding Service Provider?

All TrueShred employees undergo National Association of Information Destruction (NAID) AAA Certification screenings to verify their understanding of the applicable data protection laws. We also issue a Certification of Destruction after completing the job to ensure compliance and an appropriate audit trail for all discarded PHI.
