A laptop with 7,800 patient names, birth dates and Social Security
numbers was stolen last week from the Seton hospital system.
Seton officials said the Dell computer was taken Friday from the
information services department at 7600 Chevy Chase Drive, off
Anderson Lane in North Austin. The laptop includes personal
information on 7,800 uninsured patients who have gone to Seton
emergency rooms and city health clinics since July 1, 2005.
The computer does not contain patient health information, said Greg
Hartman, senior vice president of marketing and planning for the
Seton Family of Hospitals.
He said that Seton is working with the Austin Police Department and
that affected patients will be notified by letter.
"It's a very difficult situation," Hartman said. "We're very hopeful
we can catch this thief."
