Whether you are a hospital, part of an independent doctors’ network, or a solo healthcare practitioner, the requirements and obligations regarding the collection, maintenance, and eventual destruction of personal and confidential information are significant. The loss or mishandling of any of that information can result in fines, penalties, and even the loss of license.

And despite everyone’s best efforts, there have already been more than 95 breaches in the US and Canada in 2017 resulting in the theft of everything from hospital and health records to financial data and credentials.1

“We have high-end cyber-security. It can’t happen to us”

Not everything your organization collects, stores, or handles is digital. When financial forecasts or year-end results get printed, or when reports or agendas are circulated for a meeting, they are at risk of getting into the wrong hands if they are not handled and disposed of properly and securely.

And for that reason alone, every healthcare organization is at risk of an information breach regardless of size, type, or location.

Up to 25% of information breaches are caused by employee error or negligence.2

It’s not just you that you have to worry about. In an industry that relies on privacy and confidentiality, the reality is that many information breaches happen not just because of inferior firewalls or weak passwords, not because of malicious hacks or cyber attacks, but because of employee error, negligence, or poor judgement!
You may be doing everything you can but one employee, casually dropping an old doctor’s report or x-ray a recycling bin, can undo everything.

With a quarter of your risk coming from inside, you need to ensure your employees at every level know how to identify, handle, and securely dispose of confidential information – whether that information is digital or in paper form.

"I think the drivers that come in our health clinic for our shred have been very professional and courteous." The Health Center at Lowes NM

"It is convenient and the people that come to pick up are very friendly." Prince Edward County Health Dept

"What I like most about your services is the professionalism and friendliness of the drivers, they are always courteous, respectable and dependable and always on time. You couldn't ask for any better quality service." Alpha Health & Rehab of Greer

"You are always in and out quickly. Your drivers never try to enter through the back door so we always know when they are here. They check with each of us before leaving to see if we have anything to add to the bag first. Always friendly!" Balanced Health

Learn to recognize the risks.

In healthcare, it’s a safe bet that every document you or your employees handle contains some form of confidential information.

Whether its patient records or pharmacy reports, or your own financial reports and billing data, you have a lot of information to secure.

If you create, collect, or dispose of these types of documents, you and your organization could be at-risk for an information breach ––

  • Patient Insurance Information
  • Medicaid/ACA Information
  • Medical Invoices and Payments
  • X-rays and MRI Files
  • Payroll and HR Records
  • Financial Statements
  • Balance Sheets
