McShane & Brady leading the fight against medical records breaches

June 13, 2019
For immediate release:

McShane & Brady, LLC, a Kansas City law firm, has led the charge of those who have had their medical records disclosed in violation of federal and state law. These records contain highly sensitive information that is meant to be kept confidential between the patient and physician.

Recently, LabCorp and Quest Diagnostics announced an unauthorized disclosure affecting collectively, nearly 20 million people.

American Medical Collection Agency provides services to LabCorp and Quest.

This breach occurred some time between August 2018 to March 2019. The breach reportedly included patients' demographic and financial data. Social security numbers were also included in the breach.

"People should have confidence with medical providers that their private and personal information, no matter how trivial, should never be disclosed publicly. Those who violate the law should be held accountable for their actions," said attorney Maureen Brady.

The public has recently become more aware of depth of unauthorized medical records disclosures around the country. Maureen Brady was recognized by Missouri Lawyers Media in 2018 for her innovation in emerging practices involving HIPAA violations.

If you or someone you know has been a victim of this breach or any other medical privacy violation, please call McShane & Brady immediately at 816-888-8010.
