Broward Health Lawsuit – Data Breach of Medical Information

Consumer Protection Attorneys in California

On October 15, 2021, an intruder who gained unauthorized access to the Broward Health network may have accessed some of your personal information. Broward Health discovered the intrusion on October 19, 2021. Broward Health promptly contained the incident upon discovery, notified the FBI and the Department of Justice (DOJ), required all employees to update their passwords and engaged an independent cybersecurity firm to conduct an extensive investigation into the incident.

The investigation determined the intrusion occurred through the office of a third-party medical provider who is permitted access to the system to provide healthcare services. Broward Health also engaged an experienced data review specialist to conduct an extensive review of the data, which determined that your personal medical information was included in data accessed by the intruder.

The personal medical information that was accessed may have included your name, date of birth, address, phone number, financial or bank account information, social security number, insurance information and account number, medical information including history, condition, treatment and diagnosis, medical record number, driver’s license number and email address.

Data breach notification letters will be sent to all affected patients.


While identity thieves are becoming more sophisticated at breaking through the data protection of businesses, it is the company’s responsibility to provide the highest level of security for their consumers. This is especially true when medical information is involved. Medical information of the type lost here, is given special protection.
