Federal investigators say a cyber attack on a North Dakota-based company that provides software and billing services for doctors and healthcare professionals affected more than a half-million customers.

Adaptive Health Integrations of Williston was the target of a hacking incident that happened in mid-October, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The data breach was reported to the government earlier this month.

“An unauthorized individual may have accessed a limited amount of data stored on our systems,” the company said in a release. “Upon learning of the issue, we contained the threat by disabling unauthorized access to our network and commenced a prompt and thorough investigation with assistance from external cybersecurity professionals.”

The federal government says the security breach affected 510,574 people, KVRR radio reported.

The company said some of the data could have contained personal information such as names, dates of birth, contact information, and Social Security numbers. It does not affect all Adaptive Health Integrations patients and not all information was included for all individuals, the statement said.
