How cyber attacks are crippling Ohio health care systems

Molly Fulton, chief operating officer of Arlington Health, which operates five urgent care clinics across central Ohio, hasn’t been able to bill patients for her services for over two weeks.

Arlington Health first started noticing problems on Feb. 21, when employees couldn’t check patient insurance eligibility. Then, by the second day, Fulton said Arlington Health noticed they couldn’t submit claims for insurance payment. Now Fulton is warning that the financial situation could become dire as income dries up.

“I’m worried, I’m not panicking. I am confident in the business we have built,” Fulton said. “We can function adequately, still provide fantastic patient care for a couple of months before things start to get scary for us.”
