Hawaiʻi Radiologic Associates reopens after apparent cyber attack
Hawaiʻi Radiologic Associates reopened this week after a reported cyber attack took their system offline last month, leading to canceled appointments and delays in patients getting test results.
The company told West Hawaii Today it was hacked on Oct. 20 causing a shutdown of its phone and computer systems. The radiology business sent a letter to providers on Oct. 25 indicating the company was experiencing technical difficulties.
Hawaiʻi Radiologic Associates’ systems went back online this week, allowing the offices and four clinics in Hilo and Kona to reopen. Staff will begin rescheduling and scheduling new appointments with patients next week.
“We have been working around the clock with specialists to restore effected systems as quickly and securely as possible,” according to a phone message to the HRA clinics.
