Vendor Data Breach May Affect South Jersey Healthcare & Sentara Healthcare Patients

Omnicell, a company providing automated medication dispensing services to healthcare organizations, is notifying patients of two health systems of a potential data breach.

According to a South Jersey Times report, Omnicell is notifying patients of South Jersey Healthcare in Vineland, N.J., after an Omnicell device containing some patient medication information was stolen from an Omnicell employee's locked car.  

About 56,000 patients of Norfolk, Va.-based Sentara Healthcare may also be affected by the theft of the device, according to a report by The Republic.

The files on the device may have contained information including patient name, birth date, patient number and medical record. The device was password protected.
