Why is this service advantageous?1) The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) prevents hospitals, medical centers, doctors, dentists and any other health care provider from disregarding the privacy of medical information. This also encompasses any and all unauthorized access to medical documents, charts, and other forms that retain sensitive medical information. There can be up to $25,000 fines administered under HIPAA as well as criminal charges of 10 years for the intentional abuse of health information.
In order to protect your medical records and prevent privacy violations a SAFE, SECURE, and PROTECTED document storage and destruction program needs to be implemented.2) The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act was enacted as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 to promote the adoption and meaningful use of health information technology. According to the HITECH Act, medical practices must be Electrical Medical Record (EMR) compliant by 2014. The faster practices respond (that accept Medicare and Medicaid) to become compliant, the more federal stimulus money they are qualified to receive.
Converting paper charts to an electronic medium is not only required by law but allows medical professionals to keep medically sensitive documents secure, organized, and easily accessible. Let Crime Stopper Shredding and our partner eDocs convert your practice’s paper charts into convenient electronic records. After electronic conversion is complete, Crime Stopper Shredding can shred or store your paper materials allowing you to make the most of your office space.
