Medical Industry e-Waste Disposal Process Documentation

 

E-Waste Experts Inc. was founded on the premise of providing consumers with a legitimate, electronic waste and data disposal service that was designed and supervised by a staff member that is a licensed professional engineer. This includes all the processes, and the evaluation of those processes, used for data and equipment handling, security, destruction, de-manufacture quality assurance, and documentation. E-Waste Experts, Inc. is unique in this industry in utilizing an engineering approach to addressing this very security sensitive process that continues to involve ever increasing legal responsibilities for clients.

 

E-Waste Experts will provide clients with a secure process specifically engineered to insure that the destruction of all data storage devices was accomplished within all applicable legal, technical, industry or unique client standards. This process is fully documented and audited through strict procedures and standards and performed under the direct supervision of a professional engineer. All records of destruction will be signed and sealed by a professional engineer for inspection by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA-DEP). By sealing these documents, a professional engineer, as specified by the PA Code, assures that the work performed was under the engineers complete direction and control and that the engineer accepts full legal, financial, and professional responsibility for that work.  Clients are therefore able to obtain copies of those sealed documents for their own records or they can receive other sealed documents, which they may require, that accurately reflect the work performed.

 

Many health care companies that have sensitive patient or consumer information on computers, or in other stored electronic media, must take all the necessary steps to insure safeguarding that information and maintaining public trust. The cost of mishandling patient or other legally regulated information through improper disposal of electronic media can be daunting to a company or practice that relies on their reputations with their patients, the general  public, and with state and federal regulators. Unique to the health care industry is the HIPAA Act. This law addresses the legal requirements for proper transmission and storage of sensitive patient data and accordingly encompasses the destruction of certain electronic data storage devices.

 

The Compliance & Engineering department of E-Waste Experts, Inc. is in an excellent position to insure complete compliance with the HIPAA requirements, along with other all local, state, and federal requirements, for all health care companies through certification by a licensed professional engineer.
