A medical software vendor's unsecured fax server leaked patients' medical information, highlighting yet again the importance of vendor risk management.

Sacramento, Calif.-based Meditab Software Inc., which provides fax services and other services for healthcare providers, leaked the patient records through a fax server that was hosted by a subdomain of one of its affiliate companies, MedPharm Services, based in Puerto Rico, according to a March 17 report on news site TechCrunch.
