Even X-Ray Holders Need To Be HIPAA Compliant

XR-1 Wooden Oak X-Ray Holder from Wooden MalletKeeping a patient’s information secure and out of view is more important now than ever. This is due in part to the rampant increase in identity theft and because it is now the law. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) even requires that X-Rays be properly covered and secure as well.

HIPAA has been around since 1996, but several decades ago medical information and data could be left on a desk or pinned to a board without any worry. Not only is medical information an identity theft risk, but it is also a privacy risk. Nobody wants a stranger seeing your medical information.

We offer a great selection of medical chart holders (found here) including chart holders designed specifically for holding X-rays. You can find our HIPAA compliant XR-1 X-ray chart holder here. It is available in different wood stains and can easily be mounted to a wall.
