More than 1,200 patients were notified on Tuesday that their medical information may be compromised following the theft of a University of California at Los Angeles Health laptop in early July.

UCLA Health officials said there is no evidence that the health data contained on the laptop was accessed or distributed, and that no Social Security numbers or financial information was included among the data. They declined to comment on the nearly two-month delay in notifying patients.
