In June 2019, one of the world’s leading medical diagnostic companies reported that its collection provider's payment page was breached for eight months and that nearly 12 million customers' medical and financial records were exposed.

The payment portal was taken down, the company ceased using their existing third-party for collection services and migrated to another third party in response to the breach.
