Three face bribery charges in hospital IT procurement scandal
An IT consultant and two employees of a Boston hospital holding company face bribery charges in connection with the way the healthcare concern funneled software, hardware, and consulting contracts to his company. Brian Colpak, owner of Lynnfield, MA-based Future Techologies Inc., allegedly won "several hundred thousand dollars" in contracts by agreeing to pay kickbacks to the employees of Partners Healthcare, which owns Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women's Hospital, and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, according to a statement from the Massachusetts attorney general's office.
