Malware Fallout

 It has been a month since Valley View Hospital in Glenwood Springs revealed it had been the target of hackers.  Data from some 54-hundred patient records were breached.  How the computer system came to be the target of hackers remains unclear.  

Hospital officials have said little beyond their prepared news releases.  The Department of Health and Human Services will not officially comment.  Current and former employees and contractors for the hospital have likewise told us little.   Still, from information that has been released, the breach at VVH appears to be much like one four years ago at the Health Sciences Center at the University of New Mexico.  APR's Roger Adams reports.
