(update 2) South Shore Hospital contractor named

Although not named in South Shore Hospital’s press release about a lost shipment of back-up files slated for destruction, the data management firm was named in the hospital’s report to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. It’s Iron Mountain Data Products (but see correspondence below from Iron Mountain that it was not them or any affiliate or subsidiary).

Update: see comments below and in response to . I’m trying to get confirmation or clarification from OCR/HHS.

Update 2: Received from Iron Mountain:

Iron Mountain Data Products is NOT a subsidiary of Iron Mountain. Iron Mountain Data Products previously licensed the “Iron Mountain” name for the sale of computer back-up tapes, tape containers and other commodity data products, not services apparently related to the South Shore Hospital tape loss. The company now goes by Archive Data Solutions, www.archivedata.com. As part of this previous licensing agreement, we created this page to refer customers to Iron Mountain Data Products–now Archive Data Solutions. Again, Iron Mountain Incorporated and its affiliates were not involved with this incident.
