Athens Orthopedic Clinic in Georgia reported on July 25, 2016, that a hacker gained access to its electronic medical record system at the end of June using the log-in credentials of a third-party vendor.

It has determined that patient records in the electronic medical record system were compromised during the hack and it is in the process of notifying affected patients. It appears that Athens is notifying all current and former patients of the data breach.

The data that may have been accessed includes names, addresses, Social Security numbers, telephone numbers, and some medical data.
