Bates County Memorial Hospital Nationwide Cyberattack

 BCMH Systems Secure, Nationwide Cyberattack May Impact Information Flow

Recent reports about a company called Change Healthcare in the national media involving a cybersecurity event does not directly impact Bates County Memorial Hospital but does involve claim submissions to all Healthcare and Pharmacies nationwide which affect us indirectly by holding up our claim submissions.
