PHI Disposal

How to Select a Quality Destruction Services Provider

Regulators are very clear; due diligence is required when hiring any vendor who will access PHI. They even hold you responsible if that vendor allows unauthorized access.  HIPAA also requires a special “Business Associate Contract” be signed.

Go to “How to Document Your Destruction Program” to learn more on the required contract.

And make sure to see “Quality Destruction Service” for a checklist of qualifications you should consider.
