A miscommunication caused AC LME to lose access to servers containing sensitive health information.  An Alamance County employee mistakenly changed a lock on the facility that housed data servers for AC LME.  It appears that AC LME forgot to inform the county that AC LME was extending a contract for server maintenance.  Former consumers of AC LME, including those who became PBH consumers on October 1, 2011, may have had their personal health information stored on these servers.
