Rehab Centre Exposes Sensitive Patient Records

The medical records and personal information of some 150,000 patients could have been exposed after a rehabilitation centre in Ohio failed to secure its Elastic Search database. The 1.45GB database covered the centre's billing system and contained nearly five million documents from 2016 to 2018, including information such as patient names, medical services provided, and fees charged. The database has since been secured after being notified, but it is unknown if it has been downloaded by a third-party before the access shut down.
