An Electronic Health Records Company Will Pay $31M to Settle Fraud Claims

Electronic health records company NextGen Healthcare Inc has agreed to pay $31 million to settle claims that it misrepresented the capabilities of its software and paid users kickbacks to get them to recommend it, U.S. authorities announced Friday.

The settlement is the latest in a series of similar deals between electronic health records companies and Vermont U.S. Attorney Nikolas Kerest, which have recovered a total of more than $400 million.

It stems from a whistleblower lawsuit brought against the company by Elizabeth Ringold and Toby Markowitz, two clinicians who used NextGen’s software while working for the South Carolina Department of Corrections. The whistleblowers will receive $5,580,000 from the settlement, according to Kerest’s office.
