2.1 Million University of Miami Medical Records Stolen

Tallahassee, FL (PRWEB) April 23, 2008 -- On March 17th thieves stole computer tapes from a van used by an off-site storage company in Coral Gables, FL. The information on those tapes includes names, addresses, social security numbers, financial and health data. Anyone who has been a patient of a University of Miami physician or visited a UM medical facility since January 1, 1999 is likely included on the tapes.
