EHR Vendor Greenway Gets Hefty Fine for False Claims

February 7, 2019 Mayuri Kumar

For the second time, the Department of Justice has imposed a substantial fine on an electronic health records software vendor in a case that involves data accuracy and integrity issues that could affect patient safety.

In a settlement announced this week, DoJ slapped Greenway Health with a $57.25 million fine under the False Claims Act, with regulators alleging the company misrepresented the capabilities of its EHR software to meet the certification requirements of the HITECH Act meaningful use incentive program. HITECH has provided organizations with billions of dollars in incentive payments for using EHR software certified for the program.
