The University of Rochester Medical Center in recent days has notified 537 former patients of a breach of their protected health information after a physician’s flash drive went missing.

The drive had information on former orthopaedic patients for a study on improving surgical results. Data on the drive included patient name, gender, birth date, weight, telephone number, medical record number, physician name, service date, diagnosis, procedure and any complications. No Social Security or insurance numbers or addresses were on the device.
