"Kaleida Health, New York’s largest provider, is once again notifying patients of a phishing incident. This one involves 744 patients.

The organization discovered the incident on June 26, when it found an unauthorized third-party gained access to an employee’s email account. Officials said that after an investigation, the hacker was able to access a “small number of Kaleida Health email accounts.”

Included in those accounts were patient names, medical record number, diagnoses, treatment information and other clinical data. For some patients, it also included Social Security numbers. Officials said the financial information wasn’t included."
