Eastern Shore Rural Health contracts with Capture RX to manage administrative details for our 340B program. This program allows us to get discounted prices on drugs from manufacturers for patients. Capture RX recently notified us of a ransomware event. Ransomware is a form of malicious software that encrypts a victim’s files. The attacker then demands a ransom from the victim, in this case Capture RX, to restore access to the data upon payment. Capture RX performed a Cyber Security Investigation. It was determined that approximately 2 million people throughout the country had been affected. Capture RX paid the ransom and the information was restored. Capture RX reported that patient information involved was: last name, first name, date of birth, and the name of the medication being processed.

As the data breach occurred on the Capture RX network, which is outside our network, Capture RX will notify you by mail if your information was involved. If you have questions please contact Capture RX at 1-855-654-0919 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. We follow the latest industry security standards to maintain patient health information.
