Protect Your Medical Clinic and Your Patients

Secure HIPAA Document Destruction in Oregon

Maintaining patient privacy is a vitally important and complicated task whether you’re a hospital, medical clinic, or independent practitioner. The regulations and laws relating to the gathering, storage, and destruction of confidential patient info are extensive. Ensure patient privacy while safeguarding your practice. Mishandling patient data can lead to fines, loss of patient trust, and even jeopardize the status of your license, especially if the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) has been violated.  

DataSafe has been working with medical clinics in the Portland, Oregon area for over three decades. We can develop streamlined, secure plans for the management, collection, and destruction of confidential data. With our scheduled, recurring shredding services, your practice and your patients will be secure and compliant.  


Get peace of mind and security by eliminating a waste of space and a potential security threat.

Document Scanning

Data Breaches and Hospitals

Medical practices collect huge amounts of personal data. But unsurprisingly, organizations handling patient data are susceptible to identity theft and data breaches. In fact, breaches have become more commonplace, especially with the advent of COVID-19. For example, 2020 saw a 55% increase in healthcare data breaches over 2019. While digital records are used more and more, especially in healthcare, paper hasn’t gone anywhere. Whether vaccination cards, visit summaries, or FMLA documentation, there are numerous opportunities for data to get misplaced, carelessly placed in a recycling bin, or picked up by would-be criminals. And how are you handling unused and outdated digital media that contains data protected under HIPAA? Don’t simply store these precious devices in a warehouse or storage closet – ensure they’re securely destroyed!

Emphasize security at every step of the process and make regular paper and digital shredding one piece of the puzzle.

Stay Compliant

It’s your ethical obligation to keep your patients’ information safe. Plus, there are many laws that require it of your clinic. In additional to HIPAA, there are numerous state and federal regulations and laws that must be adhered to, such as California’s Consumer Privacy Act and the GrammLeachBliley Act. Failure to comply can lead to fines, lost revenue, and loss of employee and patient trust.  

Make sure your clinic or hospital is protecting personal and financial data and identities. DataSafe helps you stay compliant with our ongoing, scheduled shredding and data destruction services. 

We Can Destroy It All

Your medical practice collects an incredible amount of data, whether internal (such as financials, HR records, and payroll) or patient-focused. Failing to properly store this material properly puts your healthcare facility at risk of data breaches, and your employees and patients at risk of identity theft. DataSafe securely destroys records, no matter if they’re paper or digital formats.  

  • Financial documents 
  • HR files and payroll 
  • Invoices and payments

Professional Shredding Is the Secure Option

Clinics and medical offices may be tempted to shred their own documents but this is an expensive option. Employee shredding doesn’t give you the accountability and documented chain of command you need to ensure compliance. If employees pick and choose what is shredded, there may be valuable information left behind in a recycling bin. The documents that are shredded may still contain legible data since in-office shredding machines aren’t secure enough. Motivated thieves can piece together paper from a strip-cut or cross-cut shredder. Plus, your employees may spend too much valuable time shredding instead of doing their actual job duties – this is a significant cost to your organization.

  • Steve Boicourt ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    After de cluttering our home office we were left with two huge boxes of documents that needed shredded. We didn’t have the time or motivation to shred them with our personal shredder. I looked into dropping the boxes off at a local chain … More store that advertises shredding, but their bin was full and they didn’t know when the truck would pick it up. I searched again, and found DataSafe. I called and arranged for next day pickup service. It was very smooth and convenient service. Considering the amount of documents and the quick pickup service, the rate was very reasonable. I would recommend DataSafe to anyone with large shredding needs.
  • jeff mendon ★★★★★ a year ago
    I just had the pleasure of working with DataSafe for the first time,. I have had numerous experiences with larger shredding companies over the years, all of them less than optimal. From start to finish, these people are different. Great … More people, excellent service and reasonable rates. Matt helped me and I was actually happy to pay him! I would highly recommend this local company for all of your shredding needs. Thanks Matt!
