                <br/>  **Example:** the report writer, the person writing the act definition, the guideline author,
                 the placer of an order, the EKG cart (device) creating a report etc. Every Act should
                 have an author. Authorship is regardless of mood always actual authorship.
                <br/>  
                <br/>  Examples of such policies might include:
                <br/>  
                <br/>   *  The author and anyone they explicitly delegate may update the report;
                <br/>   *  All administrators within the same clinic may cancel and reschedule appointments created
                 by other administrators within that clinic;
                <br/>  
                <br/>  A party that is neither an author nor a party who is extended authorship maintenance rights
                 by policy, may only amend, reverse, override, replace, or follow up in other ways on this
                 Act, whereby the Act remains intact and is linked to another Act authored by that other
                 party.
