Atrium Health recently confirmed that it has had a data breach in September which affected around 2.65 million patient records.

The breach was caused by the company’s billing vendor AccuDoc Solutions. Atrium Health further revealed that a hacker had been able to access data including names, home addresses, dates of birth, insurance policy information, service dates, medical record numbers, and account balances.

Around 700,000 Social Security numbers were also compromised, but financial information such as credit card numbers may not have been affected.
