Healthcare Settings: The Risk of Cyber Intrusion and Potential Impact on Pharmacy

Thursday, June 17, 2021

1:00 – 2:00 pm


Hospitals are becoming increasingly vulnerable to cyber intrusion. Significant downtime and knowledge around these types of outages limit the ability to provide services, which hurts both the patient and the healthcare system under attack. Join Randy Gerwitz, RPh, Consulting Director of Pharmacy, Vizient, to learn the tools used by hackers as well as how to better operate under downtime restrictions. An understanding of the process and limitations will help to prepare you in case of malware and cyberattacks in your facility.


Pharmacist learning objectives

  • Describe opportunities to improve pharmacy performance during an extended downtime
  • Identify the tools used by attackers
  • Discuss pharmacy specific vulnerabilities and the impact of extended down time


Pharmacy technician learning objectives

  • Review the history and evolution of ransomware attacks directed at health care settings
