DiNapoli's Office to Audit SUNY Upstate Medical University's Contracts With MedBest
New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli announced today that his office has scheduled an audit of the State University of New York Upstate Medical University’s contracts with MedBest Medical Management Inc.
“Recent reports of the relationship of the former president of SUNY Upstate Medical University to MedBest have raised significant red flags about this company’s contracts with the state,” DiNapoli said. “My auditors will examine whether SUNY Upstate’s use of this single source contract with MedBest is in violation of state law and identify if any abuse occurred.”
SUNY Upstate has a $22 million single source contract with MedBest to provide technical support to implement an electronic medical record and practice management system.
