Detailed, personally identifiable medical records of thousands of Colorado residents were viewable on a publicly accessible Internet site for an uncertain period of time. The data included details of patients' visits to emergency rooms -- what ailments they complained of, diagnoses, treatments, and medical histories, along with the patients' names, occupations, addresses, phone numbers, insurance providers, and in some cases, Social Security numbers. The company is trying to determine the exact number of patients affected, but Beck says the number looks to be fewer than 5,000.
