Ophthalmology practice management company American Vision Partners is facing a class action lawsuit over a data breach that affected more than 2.3 million patients. This incident highlights the importance of protecting personal information in the healthcare sector.

American Vision Partners discovered unauthorized access to its network. The investigation revealed that the hackers gained access to large amounts of personal patient information, including names, contact information, dates of birth, medical information and, in some cases, Social Security numbers and insurance information. The company immediately notified the affected individuals and offered free credit monitoring and personal data protection services.

This case of the data breach at American Vision Partners is a stark reminder of the importance of cybersecurity in healthcare. It also highlights the need for companies to take additional security measures to protect their customers’ personal information. Victims are entitled to more than just free monitoring services, and the law firm of Console & Associates urges them to contact them for a possible lawsuit against the company.
