45,000 patients of Rush Hospital are now potentially at risk of becoming victims of identity theft after the hospital suffered a massive data breach. The hospital revealed that patients' personal information had been compromised in a recent financial filing.
Compromised data may include names, addresses, birthdays, Social Security numbers and health insurance information.
The Chicago Tribune reports that according to a letter sent to patients, an employee from one of the hospital system’s billing processing vendors improperly disclosed a file to “an unauthorized party,” likely in May 2018.
