Based on investigations conducted by ACMC, it appears that the limited patient information was only accessed and viewed out of curiosity and not distributed or shared with anyone outside of ACMC.

“Patient privacy is an extremely serious matter and any failure to protect patient information will subject employees to disciplinary actions,” said Phillip Gilmore, Chief Executive Officer, ACMC. “We are continuing to take steps to report the actions of this employee, notify any additional patients whose information was viewed, continuing to diligently monitor and protect patient information, and provide additional education to our staff.”
