Pennsylvania-based management and consulting service provider Onix Group, New York-based Maimonides Medical Center, and global IT services firm iSpace have reported being impacted by separate healthcare data breaches, according to HealthITSecurity. Onix Group has confirmed that a ransomware attack in March has led to the breach, which has impacted 319,500 individuals across its affiliates including Onix Hospitality Group, Cadia Healthcare, Addiction Recovery Systems, and Physician's Mobile X-Ray. Aside from names and Social Security numbers, data compromised in the incident included clinical, billing, and scheduling data at the healthcare affiliates.
