Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, which offers IT solutions for physicians, hospitals, and other medical service by providing (among other things) electronic health records (“EHR”), financial management and e-prescription services was subject to a ransomware attack on January 18, 2018.  The ransomware attack prevented medical providers using the Allscripts platform from accessing patient’s records, or electronically prescribing medication – causing a severe disruption to a number of medical practices.  

The ransomware which caused the disruption has been identified as a new variant of the SamSam malware, which has been utilized against other medical providers.  Physicians affected by the ransomware attack have described extreme losses in their practice including being unable to see patients in the office as a result of their inability to access patient’s vital information.  

The Locks Law Firm is investigating claims on behalf of doctors, medical practices, and hospitals which experienced a disruption in their business as a result of the Allscripts ransomware attack on January 18, 2018.  If you have been affected by issues related to the ransomware attack, call our class action attorneys for a free consultation.
