University of Florida doctor quits after putting medical records at risk
First Coast News, May 22, 2008
The private health information of 1900 local patients may have been compromised when a Francis D. Ong, MD, resigned from his position as a University of Florida and gave his computer away. UF privacy officials say Ong stored his patients' health records on a computer, which he eventually gave to some acquaintances. The computer has been returned to the school, and UF officials say the risk of anyone using the information for unlawful or mischievous purposes is extremely low.
