EHR Vendor Pays $1.7M Fine for Defrauding Meaningful Use


April 27, 2020 - An Anaheim, CA-based EHR vendor, KPMD, will pay approximately $1.7 million in restitution after it was caught defrauding the Medicare & Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs, referred to as meaningful use, both established as part of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

The tech company will pay the fine to the federal and the Ohio state programs that it defrauded.

In September 2011, KPMD partnered with Southwest Regional Medical Center in Georgetown, Ohio and agreed to implement its EHR software.
