As we have repeatedly noted, identity theft is a multi-billion dollar problem. Many companies have responded to this threat by upgrading their security procedures. However, some companies continue to put their customers at risk. Last week, Alere Home Monitoring announced that it has exposed the medical and personal information (including social security numbers) of more than 100,000 people.
Alere Home Monitoring monitors people who receive medical treatment outside a hospital setting, including those who use anticoagulation products, heart transplant patients, and others with significant home medical needs.
isclosure of personal information and medical information is unlawful, and we have brought lawsuits on behalf of victims of such disclosures in the TRICARE/SAIC, Zappos, Sutter Health and Saint Joseph data breaches.
If you were served by Alere Home Monitoring, and you believe your private information has been misused, please contact us immediately to discuss your legal options.
