ID: St. Luke’s vendor suffers data breach affecting some patients

KMVT reports:

St. Luke’s says it was informed by a business vendor of a data breach the vendor says could have affected patients and members of certain customers.

The hospital system says one of its vendors informed them of a cybersecurity incident that occurred in late May of this year. The vendor had a contract with St. Luke’s to provide statement processing and billing services.

This would seem to be the St. Luke’s Medical Center but DataBreaches can find no notice on their site and has received no immediate reply to an inquiry sent to the medical center. The image in the news story suggests it might be St. Luke’s Magic Way.

Update:  BoiseDev has some additional details. It appears the vendor was Kaye Smith, and that St. Luke’s Health System told BoiseDev it identified 31,573 individuals who are impacted by the breach. Read more on BoiseDev.

Update2: This was reported to HHS on Aug. 2 as affecting 31,573 patients but just appeared on the listing on Aug. 18.
