New York hospital network still recovering after a November cybersecurity incident

New York City-based One Brooklyn Health's hospitals are still working to fully restore some of its IT and EHR systems after a November cybersecurity incident caused three of its hospitals to shut them down, GovInfoSecurity reported Dec. 8.  

As of Dec. 7, the health system has restored a variety of clinical applications, including those used for imaging and other critical services, as well as restored access to "a significant number" of workstations for staff. 

"We anticipate the restoration of additional high-priority applications in the coming days. Importantly, patient care has not been impacted as a result of this incident," a One Brooklyn spokesperson told GovInfoSecurity

The incident, which occurred Nov. 19, caused Interfaith Medical Center, Brookdale Hospital Medical Center and Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center to have to divert patients to other facilities due to IT and EHR systems being down.

Little information has been released about the cause of the disruption.
