Abstract: 

We present a method for identifying errors in EHRs caused by copying and pasting text containing relative dates. Our method utilizes a sequence alignment method for recognizing instances of copy/paste, and regular expressions for relative dates. We furthermore present an analysis of our method on the MIMIC-II dataset.
