Electronic health records vendor eClinicalWorks (eCW) recently paid $155 million to settle a False Claims Act lawsuit alleging that it misrepresented the capabilities of its electronic health record (EHR) software.

In the attached memo, healthcare attorney Trish Markus details what doctors need to know about the eCW settlement, and what they can do to protect themselves—even if they use a different EHR system.
