The Importance of Medical Record Destruction

If you’ve ever been on the wrong side of a claim or have observed what happens to a company when there is an information security breach, you understand the need to destroy sensitive information in a timely manner. But is mobile shredding really a secure process? How does it differ from off-site shredding and how you can be assured that the on-site shredding process will safely and completely dispose of all your sensitive documentation?

How On-Site Shredding Works

On-site shredding is exactly what it sounds like—shredding services that are performed on site at your business or residential location. The entire process of destroying your sensitive documentation is performed before your eyes. All of your documents that are to be shredded will be deposited into state-of-the-art shredding trucks and then immediately destroyed so that the information can no longer be accessed. Afterward, technicians will present you with an official Certificate of Destruction, issued for your benefit so that you have a record of its completion.

Fewer Risks Than Off-Site Shredding

On-site shredding has far fewer risks associated with it than off-site shredding. Transporting your documents elsewhere to shred them off-site puts the information at risk of being compromised due to unforeseen events that might occur between loading and arrival at the off-site shredding facility. On-site shredding services eliminate this risk entirely because the documents are shredded in front of you without being transported away from your location. Destroying the documentation before your eyes gives you the peace of mind knowing that the process is complete and the information is securely disposed of.
