Med­i­cal In­for­mat­ics En­gi­neer­ing, a Fort Wayne, Ind.-based maker of Web-based health in­for­ma­tion­tech­nol­ogy soft­ware was the vic­tim of a so­phis­ti­cated cy­ber­at­tack.

Modern Healthcare - - LATE NEWS -

MIE’s clients in­clude about 100 small- to medium-sized physi­cian of­fices. The in­for­ma­tion hacked in­cludes pa­tient names, mail­ing and e-mail ad­dresses, birth­dates, and for some pa­tients, So­cial Se­cu­rity num­bers, lab­o­ra­tory re­sults, dic­tated re­ports and med­i­cal con­di­tions. Fi­nan­cial records were not com­pro­mised be­cause the com­pany does not col­lect or store that in­for­ma­tion. But ex­perts told Mod­ern Health­care that clin­i­cal data can of­ten be even more valu­able to iden­tity thieves.
