Create HIPAA Compliant Forms!

Posted by Jamie T. 06/14/2016 Categories: Feature Release

Cognito Forms is excited to begin offering HIPAA business associate agreements! Available to organizations on the Enterprise plan, establishing a BAA with Cognito Forms is a cost-effective solution that makes it easy to create a variety of medical forms, including:

  • new patient registration
  • appointment scheduling
  • refill requests
  • patient satisfaction surveys
  • online bill payment

To get started building HIPAA compliant forms:

1. Establish a BAA with us

Sign our HIPAA Business Associate Agreement to enable additional security measures, like automatic form encryption.

2. Build your forms

Easily build forms with our intuitive drag-and-drop form builder, or quickly get started with our healthcare templates. Mark PHI fields as protected to avoid unintentional transmission via email or other insecure gateways.

3. Publish to your website

Embed our forms directly into your website to create a truly custom experience for your patients. Or, simply make them available via direct link - no coding required! When embedding in your website, take advantage of our Iframe embed option to maximize security.

4. Integrate with your EHR

Leverage our secure JSON post to push submitted appointment requests, prescription refills, and other patient inquiries directly into your electronic health record system. Our JSON includes the submitted form data, as well as direct links to PDF documents that can be easily imported into most EHR systems.
Please note that this will require some work on the part of your EHR provider.

5. Manage patient requests

When EHR integration is not possible, simply log into Cognito Forms to securely review and process patient requests. Quickly mark requests as complete to track what needs to be done next.
