KKR's EmCare Says Patient and Employee Personal Data Were Hacked

(Bloomberg) -- EmCare Inc. recently learned an unauthorized party obtained access to a number of employees’ email accounts that contained the personal information of as many as 60,000 individuals, 31,000 of which are patients, the company said in an email.

On Feb. 19, the physician-services provider determined the accounts contained some patients’, employees’ and contractors’ personal information, including name, date of birth or age, and for some patients, clinical information. In some instances, Social Security and driver’s license numbers were affected, according to a company statement.

EmCare said it has arranged for identity protection and credit monitoring services for patients and employees whose Social Security or driver’s license numbers were involved.

KKR & Co. acquired EmCare parent company Envision Healthcare in October 2018.
