Some DRH patient information exposed in data security incident

DUNCAN, Okla. (KSWO) – Duncan Regional Hospital officials said Friday that some patient information may have been impacted due to a data security incident.

Officials said Friday that the incident happened on Jan. 20. They said on that date, a security incident impacted access to some of their systems, and as a result, DRH disconnected access to all systems and hired external cybersecurity experts to do a forensic investigation.

The information that was impacted, according to hospital officials, was stored outside DRH’s primary electronic medical record system.

The impacted patient information includes names, addresses, demographic information, dates of birth and some combination of Social Security numbers, medical records and treatment information.

Duncan Regional Hospital is now notifying those who were impacted, and began mailing letters starting on March 4. Those letters will include information on how to enroll in identity protection and credit monitoring services through Experian.

Hospital officials said they will offer those services to people impacted for free.

You can also call 1-888-401-0543 from 8 am to 10 pm Monday through Friday or 10 am to 7 pm Saturday and Sunday to find out if you were impacted.
