Extract

Most editorials accompanying medical journal articles are implicit rebuttals, attacks, or, occasionally, a springboard for the editorial writer’s presentation of his or her own research or passion, often one orthogonal to the stated focus of the editorial but dear to the editorial writer. Such strategies can be exciting, generating debate, rage, or insight. Alas, this editorial is only about the valuable article by Weis and Levy1 on cutting, pasting, and cloning from the electronic health record (EHR) in this issue of CHEST (see page 632). But that topic produces more than enough excitement, especially when one considers the technical and policy solutions enabled by the same software that makes cutting and pasting so easy and so dangerous.
