Requests for Medical Records
UPMC is committed to protecting the privacy of your medical information. To safeguard your privacy, you must complete and sign a form before records can be sent. On the form, you indicate what records are to be released and where they are to be sent.
Electronic Health Records
UPMC has now implemented an electronic health record at all of its hospitals. To find out if your health information is eligible for electronic release on CD, consult the updated Records Charging Structure. Electronic release is convenient and helps reduce cost. If you are interested, complete the Authorization for Release of Protected Health Information form and forward to the appropriate hospital.
Pennsylvania has established the fees that hospitals and health care providers may charge for paper medical records. The fee schedule gives a general idea of how much you will be charged. When you send your request for records, you will receive an invoice that tells the exact charge.
To get records from a doctor’s office, contact that office.
To get hospital records, select the hospital:
Medical Record Amendment
Every UPMC patient has the opportunity to request an amendment to their health information. If you would like to amend your record, please complete the Patient Amendment to Protected Health Information form and mail it to the appropriate medical records department. Please be advised, your physician may be consulted, and UPMC has the option of denying the request if your record is deemed accurate and complete. The process may take up to 60 days.
