BUFFALO, N.Y. — Catholic Health says that they have been notified by a CaptureRx, a third-party pharmaceutical software vendor, of a data breach that impacted patients from Mount St. Mary’s and Sisters of Charity hospitals, along with other local and national healthcare providers.
The breach reportedly involved patient information, including name, date of birth and prescription data, from files that were accessed on February 6, 2021. No other sensitive information was included in the data breach.
“We go to great lengths to protect the privacy of our patients and any information related to their care,” said Kimberly Whistler, Catholic Health corporate compliance & privacy officer in a statement. “All patients whose names and information were affected will be notified next week by CaptureRx. Because the breach did not include any financial information, we believe it poses little risk to patients, however, as a precaution, it’s always wise to monitor your accounts and credit information and report any suspicious activity or suspected identify theft to the proper authorities.”
