On August 20, 2015, Berger Montague filed a class action complaint against Medical Informatics Engineering, Inc. (“MIE”) for a data breach involving sensitive personal and medical information for 3.9 million patients nationwide. Click here for a copy of the complaint.

MIE is a private company that works with hospitals and healthcare facilities to provide electronic storage and administration of patient medical records.

MIE announced that the compromised patient data specifically included:

  • name
  • telephone number
  • mailing address
  • username
  • hashed password
  • security question and answer
  • spousal information (name and potentially date of birth)
  • email address
  • date of birth
  • Social Security number
  • lab results
  • health insurance policy information
  • diagnosis
  • disability code
  • doctor’s name
  • medical conditions
  • child’s name and birth statistics

The data was accessed by computer hackers. Armed with this sensitive information, hackers can open new financial accounts in victims’ names, obtain medical services using victims’ identities, and commit other forms of identity theft.

The litigation is currently pending.
