WVU Medicine leaders just held another conference call with Information Technology to review the progress being made to address the malware event that affected many of our clinical systems and PCs – and there’s good news. More and more clinical applications and PCs are up and running.

Some of the applications now working include:

  • Cardiac testing results
  • Mammography testing results
  • Kronos / scheduling
  • Point-of-care testing

There are many others.

Many other applications that have been affected should soon be running again. Information Technology expects significant improvements within the next 24 hours.

New hard drives for the AcuDose machines are being installed. Seventeen have been replaced, and the remaining ones are being replaced tonight.

It’s expected that PCs located in the UTC and POC will be working by tomorrow morning.

Information Technology wants to emphasize that patient and employee privacy have not been compromised.

Incident Command will remain operational through the night and into tomorrow morning. If you're experiencing major workflow or other issues, contact Incident Command at ext. 78220.

If you're having IT-related issues, please call the Help Desk at 304-598-4357.

Look for another update Thursday morning.
