Appellate court dismisses data confidentiality case against Sutter Health

Health IT SmartBrief | Jul 23, 2014

The 3rd District Court of Appeal in California has dismissed a data confidentiality class-action lawsuit filed against Sutter Health, saying that the possession of health records by an unauthorized person is not enough to prove a confidentiality breach on the part of the provider. The case stemmed from a data breach in 2011 in which an unencrypted computer that contained health data for more than 4 million people was stolen from Sutter Health. Courthouse News Service (07/22)
