One Community Health Lawsuit – Data Breach of Medical Information
Consumer Protection Attorneys in California
Sacramento, CA-based One Community Health has recently notified patients that its systems were compromised between April 19 and April 20, 2021. An unauthorized individual was discovered to have gained access to systems containing the personal and protected health information of certain employees and patients.
A comprehensive forensic investigation was conducted by a third-party cybersecurity firm to determine the nature and scope of the attack, and One Community Health was notified on October 6, 2021, that the attacker had exfiltrated files from its network that included full names and one or more of the following data elements: Address, other demographic information, telephone number, email address, date of birth, Social Security number, driver’s license number, insurance information, diagnosis information, and treatment information.
The HHS’ Office for Civil Rights Breach Portal indicates 39,865 patients have been affected. Notification letters started to be sent to all affected patients on November 22, 2021.
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 under California law.
