Second Defendant Sentenced in EHR-Related Fraud Case

A second defendant has been sentenced for her role in a Texas conspiracy involving the theft of data from patients’ electronic health records that was then sold to support fraudulent claims for payment.

Amanda Lowry of Sherman, Texas, was recently sentenced to 30 months in prison after pleading guilty last year to conspiracy to obtain information from a protected computer, the U.S. Department of Justice says.

“The defendant’s actions not only compromised victims’ sensitive information, exposing them to fraudulent schemes, but also ultimately resulted in unnecessary costs to federal healthcare programs,” said Nicholas Ganjei, acting U.S. attorney of the Eastern District of Texas.
