Coastal Orthopedics confirms patient data leak


Bradenton, Fla.-based Coastal Orthopedics has confirmed a patient data breach linked to a June 2023 cyberattack, according to a June 28 report from JDSupra.

The practice noticed suspicious activity on its networks June 11, 2023, and conducted an investigation that determined files and folders in the network were taken without authorization. 

On June 27, 2024, the practice filed a notice of data breach with the attorney general of Vermont after confirming confidential patient information was compromised. 

The unauthorized party accessed patient names, Social Security numbers, medical information, addresses, driver's license numbers, health insurance information, financial account information and dates of birth. 

It is unclear how many patients were affected by the breach.
