In the business world, printing is essential, there’s no avoiding racking up some costs when it comes to getting a hard copy of some documents. Spending too much on printing is easily avoidable though.
Running a business office often equates to paper usage mounting up and HIPAA security procedures being compromised. Within many medical offices across the country, documents are printed freely, correspondence continues in the hard copy paper format and many internal documents will still be printed without security measures in place as opposed to being distributed digitally and securely. It doesn’t matter how many members of staff individually attempt to cut down on paper usage, it still seems inevitable that stacks of paper cover every flat surface.
Have you ever thought about whose hands the information you copy can land? Think of all the different types of documents that are copied - tax returns, medical records, financial information and more — and the personal information within these documents.
The reason is that these new age copiers contain hand drives, similar to computers, which are capable of storing a large volume of digital information.
