Connexin Software, parent company of pediatric health IT vendor Office Practicum, agrees to settle a series of class-action lawsuits related to a 2022 data breach for $4 million. The breach affected 120 Office Practicum Customers, and potentially impacted up to 3 million patients.

The company, which would have had to file for bankruptcy had the case progressed, will offer plaintiffs and class members three compensation choices:

  • Identity theft monitoring for three years, plus up to $1 million in insurance.
  • Up to $7,500 in reimbursement for out-of-pocket losses or time spent as a result of the data security incident.
  • Cash payment, subject to the number of valid claims submitted for that option.


None scheduled soon. Previous webinars are on our YouTube channel. Contact Lorre to present or promote your own.



Karen Mitchell (AccentCare) joins Quartet Health as chief growth officer.



Omni Family Health works to bring its NextGen EHR and other internal systems back online after an attempted cyberattack forced it to downtime procedures last week. The company operates 40 health centers in three California counties.

Auburn University’s Rural Health Initiative will use a USDA telemedicine grant to install 14 telemedicine carts at 14 locations across the state – four where patients see providers virtually, and 10 where patients can receive treatment. Program organizers anticipate the carts will increase healthcare access for up to 43,000 patients across 12 counties.


The local paper profiles Aegis Medical Group EHR Administrator Peter Kizza, PhD, who recently earned one of the first doctorates in health informatics from UTHealth Houston’s School of Biomedical Informatics. Kizza is also an adjunct professor at UT Health and founder of IT support services company GatorIT, though he says his ultimate goal is to one day become a healthcare CIO.
