Hack at Services Firm Hits 2.4 Million Eye Doctor Patients

“An Arizona firm that provides administrative services to about a dozen ophthalmology practices in several states is notifying nearly 2.4 million patients of a November hacking incident that may have compromised its sensitive information. “

“The data theft is among the latest major hacking incidents reported to regulators by HIPAA-regulated business associates. Last year, 4 in 10 hacks involved a third-party vendor providing one or more of a wide range of services - from bill collecting to transcribing notes - to scores of healthcare organizations. “

“Medical Management Resource Group, which does business as American Vision Partners, works with - and "shares" a management system, IT and infrastructure with - 12 practices, according to its website. The incident involved the hack of a network server and affected more than 2.35 million individuals, the company said in a Feb. 6 report to the Department of Health and Human Services. “

“MMRG said that around Dec. 6, it determined that the "unauthorized party" in the November incident had obtained personal information associated with patients of its affected practices. The compromised information varies among patients but may include names, contact information, birthdates and medical information including services received, clinical records and medications. For some individuals, the hack also affected Social Security numbers and insurance information. “
