Oklahoma Heart Hospital notifies patients after thieves steal computers from clinic

KFOR-TV and K. Querry report that Oklahoma Heart Hospital is notifying 1,221 patients following a January burglary that resulted in the theft of four desktop computers from an outpatient clinic.

The computers reportedly contained patient information like names, dates of birth, addresses, phone numbers and clinical information.

NewsOfToday has additional details that the theft occurred while offices were being moved.

The incident is not yet on HHS’s breach tool, and I don’t see any notice up on the hospital’s site at this time, but what I do see on the hospital’s site that made me smile is a link at the bottom of every page in the footer that says “Report a Privacy/Security Concern.” Well done, OHH.
