#OpPharma: Anonymous Hackers Publishes Leaks Across European Health Care Organizations

Earlier today, May 15th 2019, Anonymous hackers published a leak of 4 health care providers across Europe. Their actions were carried out under the banner of “Operational Pharma” (#OpPharma), an international hacking operating dating back to 2015 designed to spread awareness on behalf of medical malpractice, the harmful/shady operations of the global pharmaceutical complex, as well to shine a light on the corrupt practices/dealings fueling these industries. Exposed in today’s leaks are the National Association of Hospital Primaries, ASSIST Italy, a multinational corporation involved in the shipping of medial supplies and waste across Europe, as well as the HS Hospital Service and National Associating of Doctors and Executives.

Not only were each of the websites below hacked/compromised but, in addition to stealing the sites databases, the hackers also went out of their way to deface each of the websites while they were at it.

In am message to the public released along side the data leak, the hackers stated:

“Today we want to bring your attention to a problem that affects everyone, poor health care.

According to data from the 2018 world report, the Italian national health system spends around 22 billion to remedy medical errors – a considerable figure. If proportionate to national health expenditure, then it’s estimated to be around 150 billion euros.

To succeed in obtaining a better healthcare system in the future, the 2018 World Report suggests involving not only health systems and health professionals, but also citizenship and patients in the network of proposals. Inviting them, for example, to play a more active role in the study of new models of assistance, in order to better meet the needs of local communities.

In Italy the media use the term malpractice to indicate very different phenomena: medical error, superfluous, useless and harmful treatments or practices, poor management of public health and corruption, speculation and theft. Even in our country, however, it is difficult to quantify the data of deaths specifically due to malpractice – such as attributed to the inexperience of doctors or disorganization within hospitals.

Data sets have been provided by various associations, including professional ones. However, this data should be taken with a grain of salt. Partial databases do not allow anyone to have a thorough and clear understanding of the full dimensions of the healthcare phenomenon.

It’s estimated that 90 deaths occur per day in Italy alone due to medical mistakes, drug exchanges, incorrect dosages and oversights in the operating room. In all, more than 80% of the legal proceedings enacted because of these deaths result with the innocence of the accused doctors.

Article 2236 of the Civil Code recalls that cases are limited to episodes of malice and gross negligence, while the Court of Cassation has repeatedly provided for acquittal in cases where the pathologies are little known or little studied in the literature. In such cases, the hospital must not follow the art 1176 first paragraph cod. civ (of the good family man) but the former art. 1176 second paragraph cod. civ. which configures him as a qualified debtor which entails the necessary expertise by the doctor. However, recourse to the judge must necessarily be preceded by a mandatory conciliation attempt (the mediational conciliation decree) which must be held before a conciliation body.
