X-Ray Recycling

xrayAccording to HIPAA regulations, x-ray films must be safely destroyed or recycled as they contain confidential healthcare data. Recycling medical records is a potent step toward data security instead of throwing the films away in the garbage. Besides, you can also reclaim silver from your recycled x-ray films. Quite a win-win situation.


In New York, healthcare providers can safely retain x-rays and medical records for a set timeframe, i.e., at least six years after the patient’s discharge. Once that period completes, safe disposal becomes your responsibility.

According to HIPAA, physicians and health care facilities can destroy x-ray films on- and off-site. So, regardless of your choice, the process must be carried out to protect confidentiality.
