Summary
Ascension, a major U.S. hospital chain, continues to recover from a recent ransomware attack that affected its IT systems, including electronic health records and pharmacy operations. This disruption has impacted services differently across regions, with some emergency departments unable to accept patients and certain pharmacies, especially in Maryland, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin, struggling to fill prescriptions. Ascension is using manual processes for various operations as they work towards full recovery, a timeline for which remains uncertain. The cyberattack has already led to proposed federal class action lawsuits over compromised personal health data, and the Russian-speaking group Black Basta is suspected to be behind the attack.
