2015/05/15

WTAE 4 Pittsburgh - (Pennsylvania) University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) officials announced May 15 that the personal information, including Social Security numbers, of approximately 2,200 patients treated at various UPMC emergency departments may have been compromised after records were illegally disclosed by an employee of the third-party billing company, Medical Management LLC. The medical center was notified after the company discovered that a former call center employee copied information from a billing system over the course of 2 years.
