The loss of a physician's unencrypted, password-free Blackberry at an airport on July 1 resulted in the exposure of patient names, dates of birth, medical record numbers, diagnosis information, procedure names, and test results.  Lahey Clinic was able to remove all data from the device remotely on July 6. Affected patients were notified in late August.
