Massachusetts General Hospital data breach affects 4.3K patients
Fingers are pointing at a third-party vendor as the culpable party behind the exposure of personally identifiable information of 4,300 patients of Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH).
On Feb. 8, an unauthorized individual accessed the network of Patterson Dental Supply, a division of Patterson Companies, a Saint Paul, Minn.-based medical supplies conglomerate, which services MGH with the software used in managing dental practice information.
The purloined data included patients’ names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers and, in some cases, the particulars of dental appointments.
