Seton Healthcare investigating potential breach after virus attack

The Texas health system officials say patient safety wasn’t affected, but patients contacted Austin’s KXAN with their concerns. Austin-based Seton Healthcare is investigating a potential breach after officials detected ‘suspicious activity’ on its computer network on Sunday night. The cause was a virus that targeted the hospital systems’ network. “The attempt was unsuccessful, so no data was encrypted or lost,” Seton officials told Healthcare IT News.
