Reventics is a software company that identifies issues with clinical documentation and quality improvement, coding and auditing, and revenue cycle management. Originally founded in 2016 in Greenwood Village, Colorado, Reventics now employs over 72 people and generates approximately $20 million in revenue annually.
According to a filing with the Attorney General of Montana’s office and a notice posted to the company’s website, Reventics determined that, on December 15, 2022, a hacker infiltrated the company’s computer system. As a result, the company launched an investigation with the help of cybersecurity and forensic specialists to look into the incident and determine what, if any, information had been compromised.
The investigation was concluded, and Reventics confirmed that confidential consumer information had fallen into the hands of a hacker. Though varying by individual, the information accessed was consumers’ names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, protected health information, and financial information.
On February 10, 2023, Reventics sent data breach notification letters to all individuals whose information was leaked during the attack.
If you receive a notice of a data breach from Reventics, it means your personal information was included in the data breach. Full names, Social Security numbers, and protected health information may now be in the hands of an unknown party.
As a data breach victim, you might wonder what a hacker can do with the information obtained. Social Security numbers are often used to commit identity theft by those that stole the information. Combined with protected health information, a criminal may seek free healthcare using a victim’s identity. They may also sell the information on the dark web for others to use. That can leave a victim stuck with medical bills that don’t belong to them or a medical history that’s been compromised by a criminal using their identity.
