In July 2021, Oregon Anesthesiology Group discovered it had suffered a ransomware attack, thereby compromising numerous patient data and employee information files on its company network.
A third-party cybersecurity expert team concluded that patient and employee information had been possibly encrypted and leaked. The investigation stated that hackers may have exploited a vulnerability in the company third-party firewall to gain access to its network.
Months after the attack, Oregon Anesthesiology Group began sending out data breach notification letters to around 750,000 patients and 522 current and former employees.
At the time of reporting, there was no evidence of patient data misuse, though that is always a distinct possibility in data theft events and victims are urged to obtain identity theft protection and credit monitoring services.
Patient and employee personal information potentially stolen in the Oregon Anesthesiology Group data breach includes the following:
- Dates of service
- Social Security number
- Insurance provider names
- Medical record number
- Insurance ID number
- Diagnosis and procedure information
