UC Davis Medical Center notified 900 patients of data theft

Bobby Caina Calvan of the Sacramento Bee reports:

UC Davis Medical Center officials said financial documents and other data containing information about 900 patients were stolen in an August burglary of a West Sacramento courier service.

A med center spokesman, Charles Casey, said the affected patients were notified of the incident, and “the risk of identity theft is very, very low.”

The documents, including copies of checks and remittance records between insurance companies and the university, were in sealed packages in temporary storage at the UltraEx courier facility in West Sacramento. “They were scooped up with many other things,” Casey said.
