Electronic health records vendor Medical Informatics Engineering and its personal health records vendor subsidiary NoMoreClipboard have been hit by a sophisticated cyber attack. The companies, based in northern Indiana, are working with the FBI and law enforcement agencies.

Suspicious activity on a server was noted on May 26 and a forensics investigation determined that unauthorized access started on May 7, according to public notices posted on both company websites. Access to the EHR affected only certain MIE clients, including Concentra, Fort Wayne Neurological Center, Franciscan St. Francis Health in Indianapolis, Gynecology Center Inc. in Fort Wayne, and Rochester Medical Group. These clients have been notified and MIE continues work to identify affected individuals and hopes to soon start mailing notices, says Eric Jones, COO.
