Electronic Medical Device Destruction,Recycling and Disposal
Destruction and Disposal of FDA Tracked Medical Devices
Medical device manufactures are required by the FDA to maintain up-to-date tracking records on certain medical devices. It is in the manufactures best interest to have explanted, defective, surplus or obsolete devices permanently destroyed and recycled with UDI tracked destruction certification: The FDA CFR Title 821.25, 3, viii – Medical Device Tracking Requirements states a manufacturer must maintain the following records: “If and when applicable, the date the device was returned to the manufacturer, permanently retired from use, or otherwise permanently disposed of.”
Technology is Intensifying HIPAA Data Privacy Liabilities
As electronic medical devices become increasingly more technically complex with the introduction of new communications and AI technologies, manufacturers data privacy responsibilities are expanding rapidly. HHS requires that all PHI must be controlled and protected at all times. Manufacturers will be held responsible for building in protection both through hardware and software to provide auditable proof that your devices do not pose a threat to collected and stored PHI.
