Quest Diagnostics is a major testing lab company, known quite well to us for their work to diagnose Valley Fever and many other diseases. It’s terrible that data breaches occur anywhere, but in health care it is particularly unpleasant due to the privacy that must be enforced. Unfortunately, data breaches are nothing new for many with Valley Fever after the previous Kern Medical Center data breach.
