Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating the Syracuse, New York-based Practice Resources, LLC (“PRL”), a medical billing and information technology company that provides services to various healthcare entities, for failing to safeguard sensitive patient information in a data breach that was reported in August of 2022.
Although PRL reported the incident and has most likely started sending notification letters to affected individuals, the company has not yet provided a number of basic details, such as when the breach occurred, or for how long unauthorized individuals had access to sensitive patient information. Due to the lapse in time between the breach and the company’s notice to affected individuals, hackers may have already been 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 may have noticed one or more of the following types of fraudulent activity related to their healthcare information: suspicious credit card charges, requests for government services or loans, medical procedures ordered without patient consent, and/or disrupted use of a patient portal.
