It appears that sensitive information on about 1,000 patients at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and other military hospitals has been exposed because of a security breach. This gave rise to identity-theft concerns and an investigation by the Army. Names, Social Security numbers, birth dates and other information were accessed, according to an Associated Press report. The computer file that was breached might not have included information such as medical records, or the diagnosis or prognosis for patients, according to the report. However, the fact that any patient information could be obtained is a most serious matter.
