Advocate Aurora Health (AAH), a 26-hospital healthcare system in Wisconsin and Illinois, is notifying its patients of a data breach that exposed the personal data of 3,000,000 patients.

An unauthorized party accessed files in Keystone's technology systems between July 28 and Aug. 19, compromising clinical and personal information related to 235,237 patients.

“Information stored in the Management Company’s system could include some combination of patient names, addresses, health insurance policy number, Social Security numbers, payment information, and health information such as treatment and diagnosis,” the notice explained.
