Outage at Leading Public Medical Institute in India affects Hundreds of Patients and Doctors
India’s leading public medical institute, All India Institute of Medical Services, or AIIMS, is experiencing outages following a cyberattack.
The outages are affecting hundreds of patients and doctors accessing primary healthcare services, including patient admission, discharge and billing systems. AIIMS officials told TechCrunch that patient care services have been badly impacted since early Wednesday. The medical institute moved to manual operations, including writing patient notes by hand, as the server recording patient data stopped working. The outages have resulted in long queues and errors in handling emergency cases and continued till Thursday.
Details of whether the attackers could access any patient data have yet to be publicly announced.
