New Way to Destroy Patient Data CDs

CD Wipeout addresses the needs of hospitals and imaging centers that transitioned to a digital environment for image and record creation, distribution and storage, and now require a way to properly destroy CDs that were burned with patient data. Whether a staff member inadvertently burns too many copies of a patient CD, or perhaps even a partially burned, rejected CD, a disc may have some level of patient data and therefore requires proper destruction.
CD Wipeout utilizes a grinding technology that removes the indelible print while simultaneously destroying the data layer. By grinding the CD from the top layer downward, the patient data imprinted on the top of the disc, such as date of birth and social security number, is removed, as well as the data layer, which resides just under the top surface.
