Having one of the oldest electronic health record systems in the country the state of Indiana has been at the forefront of the field for close to 30 years. Using those records and networks in the state a group from the Regenstrief Institute looked at how patients might want to control who can see their records.

William M. Tierney, MD, President and CEO of the Regenstrief Institute and a professor at Indiana University discussed how the team was able to use existing technology to adapt to the task they were given. As a result of "tinkering," with the program, Tierney said patients were able to decide whether they wanted all their records, none of their records, or some of their records made available to their healthcare professionals.
