June turned out to be a busy month for transgress reports involving health/medical data. My worksheet has more than 50 entries and I’m still adding reports as I chance them. Today, I found one from Providence Health program in or that I idea I’d mention here as it impacted almost 50,000 program members, and i don’t recall seeing any coverage of this one. According to a note i found, on April 17, a concern associate, Zipari, notified them that due to a coding error, enrollment documents for employer-sponsored plans in the small radical market had been exposed online without encryption. On april 9, 2020, Zipari had determined that “certain Providence Health program enrollment documents had been accessed by unauthorized IP addresses in May, September, and november of 2019.” The accidentally exposed info included employer names, penis names, and member dates of birth. It did not include any medical history, health information, SSN, or financial information. in reaction to the incident, Zipari encrypted the documents, remediated its coding error and took additional steps to improve its security. For its part, Providence Health plan is arranging a third-party audit of Ziparis data security practices and has offered those affected credit monitoring services. The incident was reported to HHS on June 16 by the health plan as impacting 49,511 members.
