HIPAA creates new job opportunities – Paper Shredding business

More and more people are realizing that there are new business opportunities relating to HIPAA and HIPAA compliance. In Colorado one doctor started a mobile paper shredding company to help service companies that fall under the requirements of HIPAA and FACTA.

With the passage of HIPAA and now the imminent implementation of the federal Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act, nearly every business of any size will be facing higher standards for the protection of their clients’ personal information.

FACTA requires that virtually any documents containing any personal information be destroyed before they are discarded, so businesses of all sizes will be required to be sure that the personal information of their clients is protected.

Failure to do so could result in hefty fines.

The regulation takes effect in June, so the timing could be right for Pueblo’s Mobile Record Shredders.

“I’ve been hit with a lot of patient privacy and HIPAA requirements,” Anaya said. “So I was looking for ways to get documents destroyed and found that nobody was doing it on-site, locally.”

So Anaya and his wife, Julie, joined with Joe and Kellie O’Brien to start Mobile Record Shredders.
