ABSTRACT
The article presents information on extension of the doctrine of informed consent from the treatment context to the context of health information sharing that played an important role in changing the dynamics of the doctor-patient relationship. It informs that health information exchange (HIE) allows a physician to immediate and timely access patient's health information. It also proposes that patient autonomy is best reflected through a consent model of electronic health records (EHRs).
