    I am a clinical social worker in private practice.  I need to know the following:

    1. Do you sign a business agreement (BAA) with your customers?

    2. Is your site HIPPA compliant?

    3. Are the forms I use through your site encrypted (i.e. a client access the forms and fills them out.  Are the completed forms encrypted when sent back to me so that they are confidential?)?

    Update (April 19, 2018) HIPAA is available for our Gold & Silver plans.

     https://www.jotform.com/hipaa/ 

     

    JotForm complies with the technical safeguard section of HIPAA. However, we are not officially compliant with HIPAA and cannot offer a BAA. Please see the thread below for more information on using JotForm in HIPAA compliant way.

    Are the forms I use through your site encrypted (i.e. a client access the forms and fills them out.  Are the completed forms encrypted when sent back to me so that they are confidential?)?

    You may enable the form encryption feature for your forms so that they can be decrypted only by providing the Private key generated while creating the encrypted form. Please go through the guide below that can help you with more information on encryption forms.

    Hope this information helps!

    Hello Lisa,

    Great news! JotForm now offers HIPAA compliance. This means users in the healthcare industry can use JotForm to collect sensitive patient information through consent and onboarding forms, medical history updates, online bill payments, and prescription refill requests. 

    HIPAA-compliant forms require a Gold pricing plan, which is only $99 a month or a Silver pricing plan, which is $39 a month . A business associate agreement (BAA) is also available upon request.For more information about our HIPAA-compliant forms, visit www.jotform.com/hipaa
