Your health records could have been among thousands that were recently compromised after hackers attacked an online medical portal.

Hutchpost.com reports that Hutchinson Regional Health Care System is among the 18 Kansas hospitals and at least a half dozen clinics that were compromised after the online attack on the patient portal NoMoreClipboard.

Amelia Boyd, Vice President of Business Development at HRHCS, says that the information was only demographic in nature, at least from their end. She said no finanical information or clinical information was on the Hutchinson system.

The hackers first reportedly got into the system May 7, but the attack went unnoticed for almost three weeks.

Letters to affected patients were to be mailed out by the NoMoreClipboard parent company informing them of the breach.
