The ever-widening access to our own health information brings a shift in power from health care providers to their patients. One particular shift in power has accompanied the deployment of Electronic Health Records (EHRs), which has brought new ways for patients to access their health information online. This new dynamic—i.e. people being able to access their health information at will—provides a platform of possibilities for novel telehealth applications.

A broader question surrounding Electronic Health Records is:
How can we utilise this platform in order to improve how people manage their own health?
By negotiating all stakeholder views, we aim to design a solution that can reconcile different points of view towards an integrated health care pathway.
