What does the HIPAA Privacy Rule require regarding the disposal of E-PHI?

HIPAA requires policies and procedures that address the disposition of protected health information (PHI) and the hardware that it’s stored on. All PHI must be removed from media before items are made available for re-use. See 45 CFR 164.310(d)(2)(i) and (ii).

HIPAA does not specify a disposal method. Data must be destroyed by clearing (data completely overwritten), purging (degaussing), or destroying through shredding, incinerating, etc.).
