Former Employee Pleads Guilty to Data Breech

A now-former employee pleads guilty in a 2023 data breach at Jordan Valley Community Health Center.

According to an Ozarks First Report, Chante Falcon admitted to accessing records from more than 2,500 patients who identified as Native American. She then gave that information to two individuals who cold-called patients, offering free services from the Southwest Missouri Indian Center.

Earlier this week a judge accepted Falcon’s guilty plea to the federal felony of wrongful disclosure of individually identifiable health information. That crime carries a possible 10-year prison sentence. A sentencing hearing has not yet been scheduled for Falcon.

Jordan Family Community Health Center operates nine health clinics in southwest Missouri including a location in Hollister.
