Data Breach Affects 1400 Health Center Patients

Some 1,400 patients at the University of Connecticut Health Center are being offered two-year free credit monitoring and identity theft insurance after a data breach there.

The Health Center says it learned a former employee had accessed their patient records, including name, address, date of birth and, in some cases Social Security numbers and other health information.  The Health Center,  which learned of the unauthorized access two months ago, says there is no evidence that any patient’s personal information was retained or mis-used.  It says the data in question was not part of the employee’s job responsibility.  Privacy officer Iris Mauriello said the Health Center regrets the inconvenience and concern the privacy breach may cause patients.
