    We want to embed a form we've created in a HIPAA compliant platform

    Asked by jbpolk on June 18, 2017 at 10:01 AM

    Can you tell us whether that is possible, and the contents of that form will stay in our domain, hosted on our HIPAA compliant platform?


    Our development team has questioned whether the data will be hosted by us and never leave our site. HIPAA is key for this use.

    Please note that Jotform is not yet HIPAA Compliant, but Jotform can be used in HIPAA compliant way. Please check this guide for more details: http://www.jotform.com/answers/333046.

    If you want to store the submissions to your own server, you can do it by using any of the following methods:

    1. API (http://api.jotform.com/docs/).

    2. Send Post (https://www.jotform.com/help/126-How-to-send-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP).

    I suggest doing it with our API since you can call to delete the submissions from our servers using it. The Send Post requires you to delete the submissions manually.

    Let us know if you have any additional questions.
