A hard drive was discovered missing on February 19.  It contained patient personal and medical information related to a bone density machine.  Medical information, names, dates of birth, addresses, medical record numbers, and medications from patients who had bone density scans between November 2005 and January 2012 were exposed.  The hard drive was designed to work with the bone density machine and specialized software would be needed to extract information.
