Before the internationally respected business thinker, Dr. Stephen Covey, died a few years ago, one of our executives had dinner with him. In that introduction a humorous source of conversation developed because, unlike Stephen Covey, who created GREAT ideas, Shred Northwest’s mission is to go around destroying such things…or at least the records of these ideas and intellectual property. Vancouver we respect your contributions to our local economy and we want to help protect your privacy in order to help you keep moving forward full steam ahead. There is no reason to delay your security or keep dealing with giant national firms when Shred Northwest offers such a great, local alternative.


-Making sure that HIPAA Compliance is more than a Trendy Slogan-
Salmon Creek has spectacular and renowned medical centers and Shred Northwest is right in the middle of it. For many years now Shred Northwest has been shredding many of the most prestigious medical centers and offices in the Vancouver Washington areas.
Working within the medical field has special legal considerations governed by HIPAA. Protected Health Information (PHI) is just that, “protected information”, and that includes protecting it during it’s final disposition. To protect PHI, and demonstrate HIPAA compliance much of our work happens before we ever arrive at your location. Risk assessments, identifying our areas of security we can improve, and training, training, training, are all ways Shred Northwest prepares to be a solid paper shredding services company for you.
Shred companies that destroy PHI, like Shred Northwest, are considered “Business Associates” (BAA) of the “Covered Entity” that a patient works with. Shred Northwest is a professional and responsible BAA and we have taken all the legal steps to be the right shredding partner for your medical office or other highly regulated organization.
As you could imagine, basically anything and everything that is printed on paper that has to do with medicine needs to be shred. Don’t take any chances having employees try to manage a “Recycle-or-Shred” program. All the material we shred and destroy is recycled! Hard drives containing electronic health data, x-ray images, prescription orders, even doctors notes scratched out on note pads needs to be destroyed. When we go to medical facilities to shred PHI, it is never coming back! The information has reached the end of it’s metaphorical life and we are taking it down!
