Texas clinic notifies 3,000 patients after 5 computers stolen

It looks like we now have some details on one of the breaches for which we had no information: Stone Oak Urgent Care.

Patrick Danner reports:

Five computers containing medical and personal information of more than 3,000 patients were stolen from a Stone Oak physician’s office in October.

Dr. Sudhir Gogu of the Stone Oak Urgent Care & Family Practice said the computers were stolen after an office door had been pried open sometime during the weekend of Oct. 22-23, according to the police report.

A San Antonio Police Department spokesman said in an email Wednesday that the computers have not been recovered and there have been no arrests.

On Dec. 5, six weeks after the break-in, Gogu sent letters to patients informing them that their names, Social Security numbers, birthdates, account numbers, disability codes and diagnoses were kept on the stolen computers.
