News Briefs: Rhode Island Subpoenas UnitedHealth Over Data Breach

Rhode Island Attorney General Peter Neronha, a Democrat, subpoenaed UnitedHealthcare over a recent data breach that saw the personal data of 22,000 plan beneficiaries get hacked by an unknown third party. The exposed beneficiaries were members of the health plan of the Rhode Island Public Transport Authority, which discovered the breach, Modern Healthcare reported.

The number of telehealth visits has declined as the pandemic has receded, according to analysis of Epic Systems Corp. data by the Kaiser Family Foundation. The research indicates telehealth visits accounted for 13% of outpatient visits between March and August 2020, but declined to 11% of outpatient visits between September 2020 and February 2021 and 8% of such visits from March to August.
