Lurie Children's restores EHR platform post-cyberattack

Lurie Children's of Chicago has reactivated its Epic electronic health record platform along with other key systems, but its MyChart patient portal remains down following a cyberattack on the hospital in late January.

"Our teams continue working around the clock to reactivate all remaining systems, including MyChart, as quickly as possible," the hospital said in an online statement. "As an academic medical center, our systems are highly complex and, as a result, the restoration process takes time."

The hospital is working with internal and external experts toward full restoration of its systems, including the verification and testing of the systems prior to bringing them back online. 

Access to the hospital's email and phones was restored in mid-February.
