DocGo discloses cyberattack after hackers steal patient health data
2024-05-07 22:20

Mobile medical care firm DocGo confirmed it suffered a cyberattack after threat actors breached its systems and stole patient health data.

DocGo is a healthcare provider that offers mobile health services, ambulance services, and remote monitoring for patients in thirty US states and across the United Kingdom.

In a Tuesday evening FORM 8-K filing filed with the SEC, DocGo warned that they recently suffered a cyberattack and are working with third-party cybersecurity experts to assist in the investigation.

As part of DocGo's investigation, it was determined that the hackers stole protected health information from a "Limited number of healthcare records" for the Company's US-based ambulance transportation business.

DocGo is actively reaching out to individuals whose data was compromised in the attack.

No threat actors have claimed responsibility for the breach, but if it was a ransomware attack and a ransom is not paid, we will likely see the stolen data used as leverage in the future to extort DocGo.
