A breach of the Memorial Hermann Health System puts the personal information of more than 10,000 patients at risk.
An employee, who is no longer with Memorial Hermann, accessed patients’ electronic medical records- exposing sensitive data such as social security numbers and birthdates. Financial information was not compromised.
Letters went out Friday afternoon to patients who might be involved. The hospital has launched an investigation into the breach that took place between December 2007 to July 2014.
