In an increasingly risk-laden world of identity theft and similar privacy violations, few security measures are more essential than medical record destruction. While high-tech violations may be the order of the day, they often begin in a decidedly more low-tech location: hospital Dumpsters. With even the Supreme Court forced to acknowledge that Dumpster diving is legal, it has never been more important to avoid taking unnecessary chances.

Fortunately, there is a remarkable new method of doing so. While security-conscious hospitals have long understood the benefits of file shredding, they have also long dreaded the often exorbitant expenses of doing so properly and in substantial quantities. But thanks to a select group of top document shredding firms who have embraced next-generation mobile technology, that choice no longer needs to be a painful one.

A New Day for Medical Record Destruction

Using this new proprietary technology, the top medical record destruction firms are now able to shred files at a dizzying 6,000 pounds an hour. Better still, they are able to do so using mobile units onsite, so that you can witness the process yourself. That means that you will never again have to worry about the security of your patients' files between the time that they leave your hands and the time that they are destroyed.

Affordable and exceptionally powerful, tomorrow's solutions are available to savvy hospitals today. Your patients and your staff deserve the highest possible privacy standards. If you know where to look, you can now meet and exceed those standards with ease.
