The same technology that allows, or perhaps encourages, cutting, pasting, and cloning of material can also help to control some of the problems it facilitates. For example, some EHRs use a different font to display material that has been copied. Even better, the repeated material appears with attribution to the original author and with the original time of entry. In contrast, some EHRs offer a function called “make me the author,” which allows the most recent user to appear as the creator of the document, even though he or she may have only updated a number or made a quick note. Functions like these are just lethal. Not only deceptive, they provide an opportunity for an inexperienced clinician in training to alter the record made by others. The legal and medical consequences of this feature are mind-boggling, and yet, it is allowed. An unguarded terminal would even permit a passing janitor to gain control of patients’ complex treatments with little protection save the possibility of expensive, post hoc, forensic computer analysis.
