A computer that may contain personally identifiable information of almost 20,000 Reid Hospital patients was stolen from an employee’s home office in early April. According to Craig Kinyon, CEO/President of Reid Hospital, the laptop was only one of the items stolen in a break in, this indicating that data was not the objective of the theft.
The computer in question might have been storing reports on Medicare and Medicaid patients that have received treatment and medical services between 1999 and 2008. The reports contain names and Social Security numbers, as well as Medicare numbers.
No information stored after 2008 was stored on the stolen device. Nor were any financial information, banking information or other identifying information stored on the missing notebook.
