UM patient data stolen

The Miami Herald, January 31, 2012
Limited data on 1,219 University of Miami patients was stolen in November when someone broke the back window of a pathologist's car and took a briefcase that contained a flash drive. The drive contained information on the patients' age, sex, diagnosis and treatment information from 2005 to 2011, UM said in a press release late Friday afternoon. No financial information or Social Security numbers were on the drive, the university said.
