Army Hospital Patients' Medical Data Exposed
DATA LOSS—U.S.April 23, 2010
Officials have alerted patients of an Army hospital in Texas that their personal information may have been exposed, the Associated Press reports. An Army spokesman said a three-ring binder containing the names, phone numbers and health information of nearly 1,300 Brooke Army Medical Center patients was stolen from a case manager's car. The Army also notified police, the Department of Defense and the Department of Health and Human Services. The case worker received a letter of concern even though having information in a car off-post does not violate Army regulations.
