Research study participants may have had their personal information exposed by the theft of a laptop.  The laptop was stolen when UMMC employees left the laptop unsecured for a short period of time against departmental guidelines.  It was reported stolen on October 31, and the employees who left it unsecured were disciplined.  Two databases with research related health information were on the laptop.  One had the age, sex, race, medical record number, zip code, and lab results of 1,400 patients.  The other database contained unspecified protected health information from 75 patients.
