Orthopedic

An unauthorized third party gained access to patient records and data systems at Texas Orthopedics and Sports Medicine in The Woodlands between Nov. 22 and Nov. 29, 2022. 

On Nov. 28, the practice became aware of the breach, and on Feb. 10, the practice determined that patient records had been breached, according to a notice from the practice. 

Possible leaked patient information includes dates of birth, diagnosis information, disability information, driver’s license numbers, health insurance group/plan numbers, health insurance information, health insurance policy numbers, medical history information, medical record numbers, prescription information, subscriber numbers and treating/referring physicians. 

The practice is unaware of any misuse of the patient information; however, it is urging patients to be on the lookout for signs of fraud, according to the notice.
