About properPHIdisposal

properPHIdisposal.net is non-profit website containing information and resources intended to help healthcare providers protect patient information at its most vulnerable point – when it is discarded.

By properly destroying discarded information, practice administrators not only protect patients’ legal right to confidentiality; they also protect their organization, employees and themselves from new mandatory fines that could result from improper disposal.

The information and resources contained within this website are provided under the assumption that healthcare administrators who are fully informed on the new realities and new risks of the improper information disposal, will be best prepared to take the steps necessary to protect their healthcare practice and its patients.

properPHIdisposal.net is a service of the National Association for Information Destruction, a non-profit association promoting the proper destruction of sensitive information through education and standards development.
