UPMC has a deep commitment to protecting the privacy of your medical information.
Here are the different ways to obtain and request changes to your medical records:
Patients may request a copy of their medical record or ask us to send them to someone else.
To safeguard your privacy, complete and sign a protected health information (PHI) release form.
On the form, you can let us know:
UPMC may charge fees allowable under State law and the Federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). We do not charge a fee to release medical records to physicians or other health care facilities. There may be a fee to release copies for personal use or to release copies to a third party.
(which would include Children's Community Practices and/or UPMC Cancer Center offices or from Comprehensive Rehabilitation Services "CRS")
Request your medical records from your UPMC physician office.
NOTE: This online form is not applicable for UPMC Central Pa. (Harrisburg, Carlisle, Hanover, Lititz, and York) patients. Please contact your physician’s office to request your records.
To request your records from a UPMC Hospital, select from the list below where you received services.
Every UPMC patient can request a change to their medical record if they believe there's incorrect or incomplete information.
To request a change, fill out the UPMC patient amendment to PHI form. Then mail it to the proper medical records department. The process may take up to 60 days.
Please note, we may consult your doctor before making changes to your record. UPMC can also deny the request if we deem your record correct and complete.
