What Does Being HIPAA-Compliant in Washington, DC Mean?

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is a piece of legislation (collective laws) that primarily deals with the subject of information and patient data privacy and security. HIPAA as a whole addresses a broad range of important laws, including healthcare and insurance provisions, but when we’re talking about the safe and secure handling of sensitive documents, we’re more specifically talking about HIPAA Title II, and even more specifically, the HIPAA Privacy Rule.

The HIPAA Privacy Rule, or Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information, is a provision that denotes the importance of and necessity of handling PHI (personal health information). Maintaining compliance with this requires confidentiality and security measures be in place in order to protect and restrict access to this information.

In a nutshell, and in how it pertains to TrueShred, being HIPAA-compliant means that we take every necessary step in order to ensure complete confidentiality and the safe destruction and removal of private information and data.

How Do You Become HIPAA-Compliant?

There isn’t actually an official HIPAA certification system currently set in place, rather compliance most typically pertains to the training and knowledge of compliance rules and regulations. Many businesses such as ours will seek training courses for employees in order to ensure complete understanding of what compliance involves, what it pertains to, and how it applies to our work.

Lest the lack of an “official” system make you balk, it is important to note that failure to retain compliance is very strictly punished and heavily enforced on all government and law levels.
