Ex-Outcome Health execs sentenced for overbilled ad revenue, misleading auditor


Three former executives of Chicago-based Outcome Health (OH), a healthcare technology company, were sentenced for misleading an auditor, clients, lenders, and investors about a scheme to sell $45 million in overbilled advertisements.

Rishi Shah, OH’s former chief executive, and Brad Purdy, its former chief financial officer, will serve seven and half years and two years and three months, respectively, in prison, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced Monday in a press release. Shradha Agarwal, OH’s former president, will serve three years in a half-way house.

Starting in 2006, Context Media which later changed its name to Outcome Health, installed televisions and tablets in doctor’s offices nationwide and sold advertising on the screens to drug companies and other businesses, the DOJ said.
