GRABAR LAW OFFICE INVESTIGATES POTENTIAL SHAREHOLDER ACTION ON BEHALF OF CURRENT SHAREHOLDERS OF ALLSCRIPTS HEALTHCARE SOLUTIONS, INC. (NASDAQ: MDRX)
Current Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: MDRX) shareholders who have held shares of the Company’s stock since at least January 2018, have standing to seek corporate reforms, the return of funds back to company coffers and potentially a court approved incentive award if appropriate.
Allscripts has agreed to pay a $145 million to settle Department of Justice (DOJ) allegations related to cloud-based electronic health record company Practice Fusion, which Allscripts acquired in 2018. In settling, the company admitted that it “solicited and received kickbacks from a major opioid company” in exchange for clinical decision support (CDS) alerts promoting unnecessary prescription opioids, according to a release from the DOJ. The DOJ investigation found that Practice Fusion Inc. accepted payments that constitute kickbacks in violation of the federal Anti-Kickback Statute and Civil Monetary Penalties Law, and related state statutes.
Unlike a class action, brought on behalf of investors, a shareholder derivative action is an action brought by a shareholder of a public company on behalf of and for the benefit of the company itself against the directors and/or officers of that company. In a derivative action, shareholders “step into the shoes” of the directors and officers of a company and bring litigation that the board would be unwilling to pursue on its own.
