"Calm Under Pressure": JBSA-Lackland Pharmacy teams operate through nationwide cyberattack

By 59th Medical Wing Public Affairs

Last month, a reported cyberattack on the nation’s largest commercial prescription processor impacted military clinics and hospitals worldwide, as well as some retail pharmacies.

In response, the 59th Medical Wing's Pharmacy team at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland implemented emergency plans to continue serving patients and provide medical support to the United States Air Force's basic training mission.

Additionally, they assisted other Military Treatment Facility pharmacies during the initial stages of the event to find solutions to problems the cyberattack caused.

Ultimately, the pharmacy never stopped providing medical care, dispensing over 70,000 prescriptions during the downtime, with more being added each day.
