Laptop with medical information on 3,159 Mankato Clinic patients stolen

A laptop computer with personal and medical information on more than 3,000 Mankato Clinic patients was stolen nearly two months ago.


The breach did not include the Mankato Clinic’s electronic health records. The laptop was in the car of a registered nurse and stolen sometime between Nov. 1 an Nov. 2. Clinic officials were notified by the nurse and reported it to police. The laptop has not been recovered.

The laptop contained a spreadsheet which included personal health information of 3,159 patients. The patient information includes: patient’s full name, date of birth, medical record number, healthcare provider’s name, encounter date, and diagnosis information.
