HOW DOES PHI IMPACT TECHNOLOGY ASSET DISPOSAL?
Healthcare organizations and institutions that handle personal health information are under special obligation to protect the security of patient data as electronic storage devices are retired from use. In addition, in order to support the “do no harm” mission of the medical community, healthcare organizations also look to find environmentally responsible and safe disposal options for their IT equipment.
Cascade brings a wealth of experience in serving healthcare organizations across the United States and has been recognized by Healthcare without Harm as a Champion for Change. We recognize the unique needs of IT managers in the healthcare community and have developed programs and resources to enable you to implement compliant, secure and responsible IT asset disposition solutions, while gaining the most value from your equipment.
If you are sending equipment to Cascade for processing, be sure to review our Acceptance Guidelines for Healthcare Customers that includes more details on what we can and cannot take from the healthcare environment
