    Medical records, driver's license and Social Security numbers, and other personal information of Texas Health Resources patients may have been accessed unlawfully, the Arlington-based health system is warning.

    Texas Health is one of North Texas' largest provider groups with more than 350 community access points. Over 1.7 million patients visit its physician offices annually, public documents show.

    In a notice posted Friday, Texas Health said an unauthorized third party may have gained access to email accounts last October. As a result, the system says, it has begun notifying individual patients in writing. Texas Health told The Dallas Morning News that fewer than 4,000 people are affected.
