BREWER – The email addresses of more than 1,000 at EMMC Family Medicine in Brewer were mistakenly disclosed earlier this week.
Eastern Maine Healthcare emailed about twelve hundred patients as part of an on-line survey about the system’s new on-line medical records portal.
What officials did not realize was that each recipient could see all of the other patient’s names and email addresses who also received the survey. While trying to correct the issue EMHS sent another email but once again all of the recipients were attached.
Officials say no personal health or financial information was contained.
