Security Breach of Medical Information

Somone broke into Arizona Biodyne, a a managed care company in Phoenix, AZ, and stole a safe containing backup tapes with personal information on 57,000 people.

It's a relatively small number, by recent standards, and the good news is the thieves probably weren't look to steal personal information. Still, there was medical treatment information in the files on the tapes, so I imagine the patients, who are being notified, will not be pleased.

Biodyne has set up a toll-free number and e-mail address to answer questions from people who are notified that their information was on the stolen tapes.
