St. Luke’s Health System issued a news release Wednesday saying an unknown number of patients were impacted by a data breach.
The hospital system said a breach at vendor Kaye-Smith may have exposed a wide array of information, including patient name, insured name, address, phone number, ID number, date of birth, last five digits of social security number, description of services, amount billed, outstanding balance, payment due date and status of the account.
St. Luke’s said the breach happened in late May, and impacted customers billed in that same month. The vendor discovered the breach in June and informed St. Luke’s on July 6th.
St. Luke’s told BoiseDev it identified 31,573 individuals who are impacted by the breach, and that customers/patients of all hospitals in the system are impacted.
