Universal Patient Record Information Systems Corporation is a Health Information Technology company that develops consumer/patient centered web based applications to disseminate health information, while collecting data and making some critical health information portable. UPRIS solutions allow patients to securely and confidentially own and manage their health information.
A Personal Health Record (PHR) is a lifelong repository of health information needed by individuals to make health related decisions. The individual owns and manages the information in their PHR and determines who has access to it. This health information is actively maintained and continuously updated by the individual. As a result of maintaining their own complete, updated, and easily accessible health records; patients can receive more accurate and expedient care from healthcare providers and/or emergency personnel. All of the information on the UPRIS system can be universally accessed by physicians and specialists with the patient’s permission.
UPRIS solutions are secure, HIPAA compliant and designed to offer patients ownership and control over all or most of their personal health information and that of their families.
On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law, putting in place comprehensive reforms that improve access to affordable health coverage for everyone and protect consumers from abusive insurance company practices. The law allows all Americans to make health insurance choices that work for them while guaranteeing access to care for our most vulnerable, and provides new ways to bring down costs and improve quality of care. UPRIS Corp. has developed the UPRIS Records Repository System which allows patients to electronically collate paper-based health and immunization records along with test results and films (i.e., x-rays, MRI and CT scans). Through secure, HIPAA compliant systems patients’ paper records are converted to electronic documents that can be uploaded to the PHR accounts.
UPRIS Corp., LLC is, also dedicated to eliminating the racial and ethnic disparities in healthcare by offering tools for personal- health management, responsible maintenance and health education. The dissemination of culturally appropriate health information will raise awareness and health literacy levels thus, improving the health status of minorities, seniors, the impoverished, young adults and children.
