In brief: Set by states/ feds

Access to medical records is defined by your state and federal statutes.
You may not be aware, but the states medical boards, insurance plans, other treating physicians & persons directly involved in patient care all have access by statute.Treating physicians or facilities can discuss patients DX & rx based on kinship & other factors defined within these statutes.
