Texas' Lubbock Cardiology Clinic recently published a paid advertisement on the Web site of the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal warning the clinic's patients that "an Unauthorized Access into the EHR (electronic health record) containing our medical records" had occurred (h/t PHIprivacy.net).

"In spite of using aggressive and up to date tools to prevent this unauthorized access, we find that over 1,400 of our medical records were affected," clinic president Dr. Guy Wells wrote in the statement.

The access took place from December 15, 2013 to January 30, 2014, and exposed medical records along with patient names, addresses, phone numbers and Social Security numbers.

"We are vigorously seeking answers and recovery of this information, and I am confident that we will be successful," Dr. Wells claimed.

Patients with questions are advised to contact (888) 649-3557.
