"There was just a visceral anger at having a CPA firm conduct an audit ...

... of my private practice [for meaningful-use compliance]. They had contacted me via email to notify me that I had been selected for the audit. The whole process was so bizarre that I thought it was fraudulent and called CMS to verify that the CPA firm was contracted with CMS. It was stunning to me that the government would give me $18,000 [as an EHR incentive payment], not tell me what the recordkeeping expectations were to determine compliance, and then audit me three years later. That is what prompted [my Freedom of Information Act] request."
