In early March 2023, ASAS Health locations primarily in Edinburg and McAllen became aware of suspicious activity within its data systems. The unauthorized access was quickly caught prior to the destruction or deletion of any data or systems. Some patient data could have been viewed or copied. ASAS Health continues to work with a forensic investigator and other experts, including law enforcement officials, to evaluate the incident and identify impacted records that could include personal or sensitive information.
ASAS Health will notify all potentially impacted patients promptly via mail with more information and the next steps. ASAS Health took multiple steps to lessen the possibility of harm including immediately implementing its cyber security incident protocols and engaging the services of cyber security experts. ASAS Health will continue to comply with HIPAA and all other state and federal regulatory guidelines.
If you are a current or past patient of these clinics, you will receive a letter in the mail during the week of May 8th, 2023 providing you with information and next steps.
