HIPAA Rules on consent to email records

I seem to be getting a lot of calls lately from doctors asking me to email them x-rays of patients that were originally requested by another doctor. I've always done this routinely but I'm starting to wonder if I should be getting patient's consent to do this. It seems appropriate to me that a doctor could request a patient's records without their consent, because the only way they would know we have the records is if the patient informs them, which implies (in my mind) consent.

Does anyone have any experience with this or have an opinion? I'd hate to have to contact the patient to get their permission PLUS I'd also hate to have to start keeping a paper trail of consent for all these requests.

Thanks for any ideas you all might have.
