Media Notice


 


Everett,WA(January 2, 2020) -CommunityHealthCenterofSnohomishCounty


(CHC) reported today that personal and Dental information concerning its patients


was accessed by an unauthorized individual. On November 5, 2019, a patient of


CHC visited one of CHC’s clinic locations to obtain copies of their personal records.


Due to human error, the incorrect records, which contained information relating to


patient treatment plans, were inadvertently printed out and provided to this patient.


The information, although containing very limited content or detail, did include


patients’ ­rst and last name, date of birth, medical record number (an identi­cation


number created and used only by CHC), expected dental treatment and treatment


provider. To date, there is no indication that any information potentially accessed


was misused during this incident.


 


Upon learning of the disclosure, CHC immediately took steps to contact the


individual in possession of the patient records to ensure their destruction or


return. To date, this individual has refused to return the records or con­rm their


destruction. Due to the nature of these records, CHC is unable to replicate the


exact list of patients affected in this incident. Therefore, out of an abundance of


caution and so that patients may diligently monitor their accounts, CHC will provide


information on how to protect your credit to those individuals whose information


was potentially accessed. CHC takes patient privacy very seriously and has


established stringent protocols to ensure patients’ information remain private. CHC


has taken every step necessary to address the incident, including conducting staff


training to ensure this incident will not be repeated.


 


CHC recommends patients remain vigilant in regularly reviewing and monitoring


all account statements and credit history to guard against any unauthorized


transactions or activity. Individuals may obtain one (1) free credit report per year by


visiting www.annualcreditreport.com or calling 1-877-322-8228. If any suspicious


or unusual activity is discovered, please contact your ­nancial institution. For


information on a 90-day security alert or credit freeze on your credit ­le, please


contact the following website at https://www.identitytheft.gov/creditbureaucontacts


and they will be able to assist you.


 


For further questions or additional information regarding this incident, or to


determine if you were potentially impacted by this incident, patients may call CHC


at 1-888-520-2427, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Paci­c.
