Two University of Miami Health System employees were fired after an investigation found they may have sold patient information.
In a news release, University of Miami officials said Miami-Dade police informed the health system of the breach on July 18. The University then notified patients whose information may have been accessed. Only patients who visited University of Miami Hospital between October 2010 and July 2012 may be affected.
The information was taken from face sheets, documents related to the patient registration process which contain names, addresses, dates of birth, insurance policy numbers, the reason for the patient's visit, and service area.
The University offered credit monitoring for patients who may have been affected.
The news release stated that there was no reason to believe medical records were at risk.
The two former employees were not arrested but remain under investigation.
Anyone with question should call the University's incident line at 877-534-7033.
