    ​Does anyone have a policy they can share on Shredding after scanning?  We are currently doing QA on 25% of our daily work on OP and 100% on IP, we shred the paper record 30 days after scanning.

    Affidavit of destruction refers to destroying records permanently, since they are scanned into the EHR and that is considered our Legal Health Record that remains forever, so we do not perform a destruction of records for paper copies scanned.  Does anyone else understand this to be the case for Affidavits.
