Health Information Breach at UK

Nov 23, 2011

The University of Kentucky is notifying 878 people of a breach of protected health information from a lost business phone. The phone was lost on Sept. 25 and was never recovered, UK HealthCare spokesman Kristi Lopez said. UK took out a classified ad in the Lexington Herald-Leader on Wednesday, saying the phone had access to email that might have included information about health conditions with medical record numbers "and, in some cases, names."
