Laptop theft spurs patient credit alerts
The Business Journal of the Greater Triad Area, April 15, 2009
Moses Cone Health System in Greensboro, NC, has sent letters offering free credit monitoring to 14,380 patients after a laptop computer containing confidential information was stolen from a vendor in Canton, GA. The health system said the information on the computer was not encrypted but was password-protected and contained a software program that requires training and expertise to use. Moses Cone said the health system does not know of any instance in which the information has been disclosed or misused or if the laptop was taken for that purpose.
