Has eClinicalWorks Put Your Practice and Patients at Risk?

As you know, eClinicalWorks (eCW), was fined $155 million to settle a False Claims Act lawsuit for misrepresenting the capabilities of its software and for paying kickbacks to certain customers to promote its product, according to the US Department of Justice (DOJ).

Additionally, eCW’s software also did not accurately record user actions in an audit log, and in certain situations did not reliably record diagnostic imaging orders and did not perform drug interaction checks. In addition, eCW’s software failed to satisfy data portability requirements intended to permit healthcare providers to transfer patient data from eCW’s software to the software of other vendors.

There you have it, “did not perform drug interaction checks” means your practice inadvertently put your patients at risk!!!!!.   

These are some serious allegations affecting all practices using eCW; however, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  The DOJ mandated eCW to assist, at no cost to its clients, with the transition to another software, for those who choose to remove themselves from all “by associations” in an effort to protect their practices and their patients.

Poll results: eClinicalWorks customers should take their data and run, readers say

What is the risk to your practice and your patients? … you and thousands of eCW users are asking the same question and soon you must make a decision, because your patients are watching.
