Confidential, On-Site Medical Shredding

Medical records are one of the primary targets for identity theft. Protect your patients’ privacy and help ensure their peace of mind with secure, on-site destruction of charts and records.

Congress recognized the need for national patient record privacy standards in 1996 when they enacted the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Under HIPAA, medical records known as “Protected Health Information” (PHI) must be properly destroyed prior to disposal.

TrueShred ensures compliance and a proper HIPAA audit trail for all discarded PHI by issuing a Certificate of Destruction to your medical practice following each service visit.

With our convenient curbside service, our uniformed professionals take your documents straight from your office to our innovative shredding truck to be destroyed.
