Recently, a franchised shredding company was cited for inappropriately handling microfiche records that included patient names, addresses, dates of birth, medical record numbers, clinical information, health insurance information, and Social Security numbers.  In this HIPAA breach, a major Texas hospital discovered that a portion of the microfiche it had provided to this franchise destruction company was found in a Fort Worth park by a local resident.  The exposure of information occurred because the destruction company did not destroy the hospital’s microfiche as had been agreed to in the contract between both companies.  As a matter of protection, the hospital notified the patients affected about the exposure of their confidential information through the improper handling of microfiche records by the vendor contracted to handle the confidential destruction of the media.  This seems to happen frequently with franchise companies who often lack rigorous controls.
