AMCA data breach scope expands, Florida lab testing company alerts 30,000 patients

Listen

Integrated Regional Laboratories in Florida began notifying around 30,000 patients that their health information may have been exposed in the American Medical Collection Agency data breach, according to the HIPAA Journal.

AMCA alerted Integrated Regional Laboratories about the security incident in June. The lab testing company posted a breach notice on its website July 30.

Since learning about the data breach, Integrated Regional Laboratories has stopped doing business with AMCA. The company immediately demanded AMCA to destroy any information from Integrated Regional Laboratories patients.

To date, more than 24.7 million records have been affected in the large-scale data breach. However, this number is anticipated to rise to more than 26 million, reports the HIPAA Journal.
