MedNetwoRX: Medical Information Processing
Risk to Business: 1.607= Severe
A reported ransomware attack on MedNetwoRX has impeded medical providers’ access to their Aprima electronic health record systems for more than two weeks. This hack impacts medical practices, clinics and hospitals of all sizes, from solo providers to conglomerates that rely on MedNetworx to host the Aprima electronic medical records system from vendor CompuGroup eMDs. MedNetworx says that on April 22, it experienced a network outage that resulted in a temporary disruption to its servers and other IT systems. Two major clients, Arthritis & Osteoporosis Center of Kentucky, the Alpine Center for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism, have been identified as victims as well as many small single and partner practices. The incident is under investigation and some functionality has been restored.
