Sutter Health says former employee mishandled patient records
Sacramento Business Journal

A former Sutter Health employee e-mailed electronic billing documents related to 2,582 patients in the Sacramento area to a personal account without authorization, the health system said Friday. This happened more than two years ago — on April 26, 2013 — but Sutter didn’t know about it until Aug. 27. The worker was discharged for other reasons in November 2014. The unauthorized e-mails were discovered during an investigation after a tip of a potential problem, Sutter spokesman Bill Gleeson said.
