Settlement Information

A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against Med-Data. The lawsuit involves allegations that Med-Data failed to adequately protect patient data it received from healthcare providers and failed to timely notify patients whose information was compromised when a Med-Data employee uploaded files containing patients’ personally identifying information and personal health information to the public-facing portion of GitHub between December 2018 and September 2019 (the “Data Incident”). Med-Data denies all allegations of wrongdoing and any liability.
