How to Delete Patient Data on an OEC 9800 C-Arm

Featured Image

Be it for HIPAA compliance or simply to clear memory space on your system, it can be necessary from time-to-time to delete the patient data from your OEC 9800 C-arm. Our engineers are frequently asked how to do this, so we thought it was about time to share the process.

Keep Your Hard Drive

Before we go any further, we want to be clear: you don't need to remove your system's hard drive to be HIPAA-compliant. You can clear the entirety of your patient data yourself, without the cost and hassle of swapping out the drive.

Three Simple Buttons

Here's a pictorial guide to the three buttons you need to push to clear the patient data from your OEC 9800:

1. Press the "Customize" button

2. Press the "Security" button

There you have it- three quick buttons will clear your system of past scans, freeing your system's memory or removing sensitive information before your 9800 is sold or relocated.

If you have other questions about using or maintaining your C-arm, our experts are happy to help. And if a relocation is on the horizon for your system, we can help with that too through our service and project management teams.
