PHI accidentally exposed during webinar for healthcare providers

Here’s one we probably won’t see on HHS’s breach tool.

Xerox State Healthcare has notified the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office that during a training session they conducted with the New Hampshire Department of Health & Human Services on August 14, they accidentally exposed protected health information on five New Hampshire residents for 7 seconds via projection and webinar. The information included the individuals’ names, gender, Medicaid identification numbers, Social Security numbers, and dates of birth.  The audience for the training session were all healthcare providers.

The recorded training session has been destroyed, and those impacted were notified and offered free credit monitoring services with Equifax Credit Watch Gold.
