Cardiology Consultants Inc. today reported that a computer used to
process ultrasound images was stolen from one of its Pensacola offices
on Dec. 19.
Cardiology Consultants became aware of the incident on Dec. 21 and
began an investigation with authorities, a news release said.
However, as of today, no arrests have been made and the computer has
not been recovered.
The computer did not contain patient financial information or Social
Security numbers, the release said. "However, the stolen computer did
contain the first and last names, dates of birth, medical record
numbers, exam dates and in some cases, the reason for the ultrasound.
This information was not encrypted, but the computer does require a
special key to access the data."
Cardiology Consultants is notifying by mail approximately 8,000
patients potentially affected by the breach.
