Morgan & Morgan’s award-winning and industry-leading data privacy attorneys are investigating Suncoast Skin Solutions’ recently-announced data breach. Suncoast Skin Solutions is a dermatology group with 19 locations in Tampa Bay and surrounding areas. The Suncoast Skin Solutions data breach affected approximately 70,000 patients, exposing health information including: patients’ names, dates of birth, clinical information, doctors’ notes, and other treatment information.
In July 2021, Suncoast Skin Solutions detected suspicious activity in its computer systems that housed patients’ information. Suncoast Skin Solutions then conducted an investigation that it completed on November 8, 2021. Suncoast Skin Solutions’ investigation revealed that unauthorized third parties may have accessed the health information of approximately 70,000 patients.
But Suncoast Skin Solutions waited 1.5 years to notify patients about this data breach, sending out letters to all those affected patients in December 2022. Those letters informed patients that they could obtain certain benefits, but patients would need to make that decision no later than March 2023.
