Vidant Health leaking PHI since at least September – security firm (updated)

SLC Security posted this yesterday:

Second Note: Vidant Health – Greenville, NC

Just a quick update that we are still seeing issues with Vidant Health which we previous reported.

On October 1, 2014, SLC Security had posted:

SLC Security informs that they notified Vidant Health by postal mail in October 2014, but got no acknowledgement.

Update 1: tweeted Vidant Health a heads up yesterday, pointing them to SLC’s reports. They did not respond, even though they responded to many others’ tweets.
