Description: Not sure how I missed this one, but I did, it seems. Note that CHI Health stands for Catholic Health Initiative. They are a non-profit organization headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska.

On September 28, Jessica Wade reported:

A CHI Health clinic sent letters to patients Friday informing them that their personal information may have been exposed during a ransomware incident, according to a statement from CHI Health.

CHI Health’s orthopedic clinic at Lakeside Hospital, 16909 Lakeside Hills Court, found on Aug. 1 that a database containing electronic health records had been locked by ransomware, a sophisticated software that blocks access to a computer system or data.

The incident has since been posted on HHS’s public breach tool as impacting 48,000 patients.
