HIM Corporate Consolidation

As part of the corporate consolidation plan, the Health Information Management Department (Medical Records) will relocated the departments at HUP, PAH, and PPMC to 1500 Market Street on December 4th, 2014.

  • The new address and contact information is:

          1500 Market Street, 14W, Philadelphia, PA 19102

           HIM Main Line: 267-758-4111

Please note: Not all HIM functions will move. The release of information (medical record requests) will remain in each hospital.

  • The Medical Record scanning functions of all three hospitals have already moved to a centralized location at PPMC (Myrin basement, room M06).
  • HIM and clinical documentation improvement teams have developed documentation tips to help providers capture the patient’s acuity with precise and complete documentation. Provider documentation drives everything in our organization, from publicly available quality of care scores to appropriate coding and reimbursement. Tips can be found at: http://uphsxnet.uphs.upenn.edu/ceqi/medrecordspage.html

In the event that you need assistance or have a question, please call Lana Brunkel at 215-439-5338.
