Change Healthcare Cyber-Attack Leads to Prescription Delays

Infosecurity Magazine

Health tech firm Change Healthcare, part of Optum, has been hit by a cyber-attack, leading to delays in prescriptions being issued to patients.

The US-based company is providing regular updates of the incident on the website of healthcare services giant Optum, which it merged with in 2022. Optum is a subsidiary of UnitedHealth Group, which has access to around one-third of US patients and handles 15 billion healthcare transactions annually.

An initial post published at 02.15 ET on February 21 revealed that some of Change Healthcare’s applications were unavailable, with later updates describing a network interruption.
