BMR's primary focus is the secure, compliant, and efficient destruction of your medical x-ray films.
Secure Destruction and Chain of Custody is of paramount importance to BMR under HIPAA compliance law.
Our team processes all medical file paper, jackets and records, onsite at the time of film separation thru a secure and complete destruction process via shredding hoppers and pulping units. Medical file information is never released to any third party until it is completely destroyed on site. BMR provides your medical facility with dependable and professional teams of experienced personnel with on-site or off-site removal of aged x-ray film that currently is sitting and taking space in your location or costing you storage fees from off-site facility providers.
