The Lyon Firm is investigating a data breach incident involving at least a dozen providers of anesthesia services to hospitals. As of reporting, over 380,000 individuals may be impacted by the security breach. 

According to disclosure to the HHS, unauthorized individuals gained access to IT networks used by a single management company and may have obtained the following sensitive patient information:

  • Patient names
  • Addresses
  • Health insurance policy numbers
  • Payment information
  • Social Security numbers
  • Diagnosis and treatment information

Details about the full scale of the data breach are still being investigated, and data breach notifications are assumed to be sent out to impacted patients as soon as possible. The HIPAA Journal has confirmed at least 13 providers of anesthesia services that have been affected, resulting in the “exposure and potential theft” of protected health information.
