The computer system for the Yuma Regional Medical Center has been down for two days. It is extremely difficult to obtain any medical records or to accomplish the simplest medical procedure.
All has been shut down because of a cyber attack.
From YRMC press release on Facebook :
YUMA, Ariz. (April 26, 2022) – Out of an abundance of caution, following an attempted cyber attack that occurred on Monday afternoon, all YRMC computers systems were powered down and moved into downtime mode, which is a manual process. Effective blocks to the attempted attack have resulted in no patient information being compromised. As of Tuesday 3pm, YRMC continues to operate in a manual / downtime mode as systems are deemed secure.
The attack is having more repercussions than deemed by the press release. Sources have informed this correspondent almost nothing is can to be done, as professionals cannot obtain needed patient information, signed releases, or input any information into the system.
A few days earlier, there was a breach in this North Dakota system.
April 21, 2022, North Dakota,
Adaptive Health Integrations faced a hacking incident that impacted 510,574 individuals, according to the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) data breach portal. The incident was the third-largest reported healthcare data breach in 2022 so far.This warning was issued on April 1, 2022.
In February, the day after Vladmir Putin ordered his forces to invade Ukraine, a notorious Russian cybercrime group called Conti announced online that they would target “the critical infrastructures” of any nations attempting to thwart Russia’s military actions. A week later, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued a warning stating that Conti has specifically attacked health care institutions in the past.
There does not seem to be any national news of attacks. Readers are asked to include any local news they know of in the comments.
Well, it looks like things are getting to the point where we’re on our own.
For all the people who rave about technology, they miss the important part that one can become too dependent on it and cripple themselves when the system goes down.
There’s a lot to be said of somebody who can live without plumbing, electricity, and grows their own food with a well nearby.
“Civilized” people will have problems just walking a mile when the system goes belly up.
DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Tenet Healthcare Corporation (NYSE: THC) experienced a cybersecurity incident last week. The Company immediately suspended user access to impacted information technology applications, executed extensive cybersecurity protection protocols, and quickly took steps to restrict further unauthorized activity.
The federal govt mandated a move to electronic records. Thanks for nothing Obama
Wasn’t it Bush who required the change to EMR’s
If FR goes down, we riot!
True that ! Dependence on technology is supposed to be great - when it works !
But when it breaks down, or gets hacked, or there is a power break down - everything comes to a screeching halt !
Now imagine what would happen if, as the credit card companies propose, and supported by WEF / Klaus Schwaub, that we go cashless and go digital only.
There needs to be 'back-ups', which in the age of technology, requires reliable electricity.
The need for working and reliable 'back-ups' was evidenced by the "10 Frozen Days of Texas" as well as the wildfires of Kalifornia .
That’s what ended up costing me my job as a medical transcriptionist in 2011. A 26-year career up in smoke mainly because of Zero.
Which is something to consider during the Great Tribulation with the Mark of the Beast.
Sure, if you don’t receive the mark, you can’t buy or sell, but if the system is hacked, there’s no guarantees of being able to buy or sell anyways. In that case, you’ve damned your own soul by taking the mark for nothing.
WEST PALM BEACH, FL – Boca Post (BocaPost.com) — Tenet Healthcare tells Boca Post that they have been able to begin restoring their systems after a cyber attack they say affected end-user access.
He maybe the one who finalized it. Medicare started implementing it in the late eighties
