Covered entities, such as physicians or other healthcare professional offices must properly dispose of documents containing Patient Health Information (PHI). PHI can be found on many printed documents generated at a healthcare office. Healthcare entities can create policies and procedures to inform their staff on methods of disposing documents containing PHI. These types of policies and procedures are intended to reduce the possibility of a PHI breach which can be a violation of HIPAA and state privacy rules and carry hefty fines.
