Following completion of the data review, Blakehurst then worked diligently to obtain contact information in order to provide notification to potentially affected individuals. This process was concluded on September 20, 2022. The impacted data varies between each individual, but the following personal and protected health information may have been involved in the incident: names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, driver's license and/or state identification number, financial account number with account access information, medical information, and/or health insurance information.
