Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating the Mountain View, California-based medical management systems company Omnicell, Inc. (“Omnicell”) for failing to safeguard sensitive patient information in a data breach that occurred in May of 2022.
Omnicell only recently reported the data breach incident in a form 10-Q filing. While the company notes that it is attempting to determine which patients’ information may have been affected through an investigation into the incident, the notification process could take months. Due to the lapse in time between the breach and the company’s notice to affected patients, hackers may be able to acquire and sell sensitive patient information such as Social Security numbers. In previous data breaches, victims of data theft have been forced to spend money on credit monitoring services or other fraudulent charges. Some individuals affected by the data breach at Omnicell may have noticed one or more of the following types of fraudulent activity related to their healthcare or financial information: unauthorized credit card charges, requests for loans or benefits in a patient’s name without their consent, fake medical procedures ordered, and/or disrupted use of the institution’s website or patient portal.
