FHN Healthcare Gives Notice of a Data Incident that may have Exposed Patient Information

According to a press release, the Illinois healthcare organization, FHN, has suffered a data breach that may have exposed the personal information of patients. The press release explained the information that may have been exposed as well as the steps FHN has taken to support patients who may have been compromised.

FHN released a statement explaining that on April 30th, an investigation concluded that multiple FHN employees’ email accounts had been accessed by an unauthorized third-party. FHN determined that the breach occurred between the 12th and 13th of February, however, it was unable to conclude if the third party actually viewed the confidential information in the accounts.

FHN made it clear that not all patient’s information was impacted, only those whose information was stored in the email accounts that were accessed. This information may have included names, medical information, health insurance information, and social security numbers, among other things.

FHN has begun mailing notification letters to patients whose information was in the email accounts. Those with questions can call a toll-free number they have set up at 1-888-800-3306 between 8 am and 5 pm CST, Monday – Friday. FHN is also offering free credit monitoring services for those whose social security numbers or drivers’ license numbers may have been exposed.

Is There Currently A Data Breach Class Action Lawsuit Against FHN Healthcare?

Saeed & Little’s investigation into the alleged data breach is still in its early stages. Saeed is currently in communication with current and former patients of FHN Healthcare to ensure that they understand their legal options.
