BANGKOK, Sept 8 (TNA) – Patients’ computer-based information was stolen only at Phetchabun Hospital and it did not belong to 16 million people as earlier reported but had been stored for 16 million times, according to the Public Health Ministry.
Dr. Thongchai Keeratihattayakorn, deputy permanent secretary of the Public Health Ministry, said the information theft affected the data of only 10,095 patients and the stolen data was not any personal information of patients.
The stolen data showed the admission and discharge of inpatients and the list of doctors on duty. The information of 39 doctors was stolen but was not a part of the main database of Phetchabun Hospital, Dr. Thongchai said.
He said a complaint about the incident was filed with police, the hacked data had been stored only to support the operations of the hospital and the main server of the hospital remained intact. (TNA)
