Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is investigating a series of data breaches that affected the personal information of oncology patients. The data breaches were caused from Elekta, a software platform used for clinical radiotherapy treatment. The software was frequently used for patients with cancer and brain disorders.
In April 2021, Elekta had its systems compromised in a cyberattack. Cybercriminals accessed data of oncology patients.
Examples of healthcare providers connected to the Elekta breach include:
- Cancer Centers of Southwest Oklahoma
- Charles Health System in Oregon
- Yale New Haven
- Carle Health in Illinois
- Lifespan in Rhode Island
- Southcoast Health in Massachusetts
Cybercriminals commonly use the data breaches to commit a wide variety of identity theft. For example, in previous data breaches individuals have had to pay out of pocket for credit monitoring or for new fraudulent charges. Individuals also may have noticed suspicious credit or banking activity, disrupted medical care, or medical appointments fraudulently created, canceled, and/or billed.
