In yet another sign that website security issues are far too common in the healthcare sector, Tandigm Health says a vulnerability on a physician portal potentially exposed the data of about 7,400 patients.

In a Nov. 23 notification statement, the West Conshohocken, Pa.-based coordinated healthcare company, which supports more than 1,100 primary care and specialty physicians, says it discovered on Sept. 25 a potential vulnerability in one of its websites.

A Tandigm spokesman tells Information Security Media Group that the vulnerability was in a portal that primary care physicians use to access their patients' data through a password-protected web interface.
