LabCorp computer with PHI stolen

LabCorp (Laboratory Corporation of America) has suffered yet another breach involving patient data.

On April 19, the firm notified the Maryland Attorney General’s Office that a computer tagged for destruction had been stolen from one of its facilities in North Carolina. The computer contained patient names, date of birth, and Medicare subscriber numbers.

LabCorp’s notification states that they learned of the theft on March 15 and notified law enforcement, but they do not actually state when the theft occurred. And although they disclose that 115 Maryland residents had data on the computer, they do not report how many patients, total, had PHI on the stolen computer.
