@healthythinker shares a recent email from Amazon Health touting its new “frustration-free” primary care service. Amazon finalized its $3.9 billion acquisition of One Medical last month.

The Chautauqua Center (NY) notifies its physical and occupational therapy patients of a third-party data breach affecting its EHR vendor, WebPT. According to the company, patient data from a referral report was inadvertently exposed in late December to a limited number of clinics using the WebPT system. DataBreaches.net has since reported that TCC has switched from WebPT to Athenahealth.
