Hackers Accessed Akron Children’s Hospital Computers

Two groups are potentially most affected — patients’ families and people who donated money to the hospital.

The patient information accessed by the hackers included billing information from office visits to doctors employed by Children’s Hospital. Those records contained personal information, such as Social Security numbers, but did not contain any medical or financial information, the hospital said.

The donor database included bank-account information and routing numbers, though it did not contain Social Security numbers. Credit card information attached to the donor files was encrypted and unreadable to the hackers.

More information about the security breach can be found on Akron Children’s Hospital website.
