Miscreants gained access to US healthcare billing vendor AccuDoc Solutions’ database for about a week in September, exposing the data of at least 2.65 million people.
North Carolina-based Atrium Health, a customer of AccuDoc Solutions, this week said it had been affected by the breach. The firm operates 44 hospitals across North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia, as well as urgent care centres and other practices.
In a statement, Atrium Health said a third party had gained access to AccuDoc’s databases for a week (22-29 September), “through a website for an unrelated client”.
