The United Healthcare / Change Healthcare enters its' second week and still no relief.

Change offers a range of services to the healthcare sector, including payment and billing, prescription processing and data analytics. The technology firm processes 15 billion healthcare transactions annually and touches one in every three patient records, according to a letter from the American Hospital Association.

“They’re employed by a variety of groups, health systems, health plans and vendors. And as a result, the impacts of the cyberattack have been incredibly significant and far-reaching,” Emily Dowsett, associate director of public affairs at the Medical Group Management Association, told Healthcare Dive.
