More Information on the Advocate Aurora Health Breach

Advocate Aurora Health uses online an online tracking tool called the Meta Pixel, that tracks how users interact with its website. On October 14, 2022, Aurora announced that—as a result of its use of the Pixel—sensitive patient data may have been shared with not only Meta, but also with Google.

The following information may have been shared: your IP address; dates, times, and/or locations of scheduled appointments; your proximity to an Advocate Aurora Health location; information about your provider; type of appointment or procedure; communications between you and others through MyChart, which may have included your first and last name and your medical record number; information about whether you had insurance; and, if you had a proxy MyChart account, your first name and the first name of your proxy.

Advocate Aurora Health has since disabled and/or removed tracking pixels on patient websites and applications.
