Stanford (Calif.) Hospital & Clinics and the School of Medicine will send letters to 2,500 patients informing them of a security breach involving their medical records. The records were stored on a computer reported stolen between July 15 and July 16 from a physician’s office, according to a Stanford news release. The computer was password protected and contained software that would detect and identify its location if it’s connected to the Internet, according to the statement.
