This one was password protected so some relief there and so far no cases of the date being used has been reported.  Again as in so many of these stories, it’s once more the 3rd party vendor as they travel around who knows where with patients records on portable computers over and over.  BD 


UK HealthCare is warning more than a thousand patients about a possible breach of their personalimage health information.

According to UK Hospital officials, Talyst, a vendor that provides pharmacy billing management services, reported a password protected laptop had been stolen in early February.

The employee had access to 1,079 patients' information like date of birth, medical records and medication. Some patients' insurance carrier and ID number may also have been on the stolen laptop.

But after investigating, hospital officials determined that social security numbers and bank account information was not on the laptop and they don't believe anyone's information has been misused.
