Breaches are occurring in hospitals, urgent care clinics, pharmacies, health insurance companies and more.
Half of consumers who experienced a breach found out about it themselves. Just fewer than half (45 percent) were proactively notified and about one-third (36 percent) learned about the breach passively. In response to the breach of their healthcare data, nine out of 10 (91 percent) consumers took action to protect their data. Interestingly, one-quarter of those experiencing a breach changed healthcare providers (25 percent) and 21 percent changed their insurance company as a result of a breach. Others sought legal help (19 percent) or involved the police (14 percent).
