Now that it has been shown that more control can be given to patients in regards to their electronic health records, the question becomes whether it should be done and how it should be done.

William M. Tierney, MD, President and CEO of the Regenstrief Institute and a professor at Indiana University said there are two very different views on the topic. One side believes patients have a right to keep their information hidden as long as they are informed of the risks. The other side, he said, believes that "healthcare is an information business," and doctors need to be able to properly manage patient information.
