TTUHSC: 'Our information resources are secure'

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

An anonymous email claims Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center has been the victim of at least four potential breaches of Patient Health Information (PHI). The letter has been circulated among the HSC Administration and local media.

It claims that there have been security breaches that led to the release of confidential medical records.

The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center did not confirm or deny the specifics of the allegations. TTUHSC Director of Communications and Marketing, Mary Croyle, sent the following statement Thursday afternoon:

TTUHSC considers privacy and security of records a top priority.

In response to the anonymous email that was sent to the local media about potential breaches, TTUHSC wants to assure the public and our patients that our information resources are secure.

As with any potential breaches that are detected, TTUHSC follows stringent protocols in place as set forth by our governing agencies.
