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.
Never Count Out The Underdog
On December 26, 1960 the underdog Philadelphia Eagles stunned the Green Bay Packers at Franklin Field to win the NFL championship. I attended that game as a 1st year law student and I joined the rest of the city and celebrated the win. Today, 57 years later, I can still vividly recall the touchdown pass from Norm Van Brocklin to Tommy McDonald that was a key part of the Eagles 17-13 victory. And I am proud to represent Mr. McDonald, along with over 1,100 other former NFL players, in the concussion litigation.
