New HIPPA Rules shape Healthcare Industry’s Document Shredding Practices

Saxon Archives, the leading document shredding company in Florida, has been helping healthcare professionals and facilities destroy sensitive patient data and documents. This practice does not only help protect the privacy of individuals but also help businesses fulfill legal obligations.
