Medhost Sues Health Management Associates Inc
Apr 25 13
Health Management Associates owes more than $4.5 million to a Texas company for emergency room software that it is still using. HMA signed a contract with Medhost for its emergency room software in May, 2011. The contract and the amount of the contract wasn't included in the complaint. The terms enabled HMA to test the software at its Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center in Crystal River, near Tampa. From there, HMA was to notify Medhost of any shortcomings within five days of a 60-day trial period ending. The complaint said HMA didn't submit a list of any problems and the software was installed at all of the company's 58 hospitals. HMA paid the first two installments to Medhost, the amounts of which aren't disclosed in the complaint, but didn't pay the third installment of $4.5 million. The third installment was due Sept. 30, 2012. Medhost notified HMA of the contract breach on Feb. 4, 2013, and the hospital operator failed to make the payment, according to the complaint. HMA continues to use the software and submitted two additional orders to add it at 10 more hospitals. To date, the software has been installed at eight of the 10 hospitals. Filing the complaint was done as a last resort after ongoing conversations with HMA since last year.
