Rothman Institute offers free credit monitoring to patients after internal data breach

PressOfAtlanticCity.com reports:

The Rothman Institute, which has locations throughout Atlantic and Cape May counties, released a letter regarding an internal breach of patient data that could have affected the privacy of some patients.

The Philadelphia-based orthopedic institute said in a statement Monday they discovered a former employee had removed paper copies of daily patient schedules from the offices without permission on Aug. 11.

The files taken covered service from March 18 to May 10 and information included name of patient, telephone number, date of birth, location, staff or physician, code for insurance company and copay amount, date and time of appointment, reason for visit and internal-use chart and code numbers.
