Despite the hard work, the attack continued to damage CRMC. As late as December 31, 2021, the impact was still being felt, according to a News Tribune report, although, “signs of recovery showed Thursday.” These included a phone system that was working better and the online reappearance of the hospital's website.

In November 2021, a report showed just how prevalent cyberattacks against healthcare providers have become. The report, by data security firm Medigate and cloud-based protection provider CrowdStrike, found that in the prior 18 months 82% of healthcare providers suffered an IoT cyberattack — and 34% of them were hit with ransomware.

There is no easy way around such demands, according to the findings in the study, titled "Healthcare IoT Security Operations Maturity – A Rationalized Approach to a New Normal.” Fully 33% paid the ransom, but only 69% of those reported that doing so led to the full restoration of their data.
