    Hi Guys, 


    Do you know if this regulation applies only to the US? I'm building a website for the medical industry and patients would need to upload their medical referral and I was wondering if this would be a solution for us.

    I'm based in Australia NSW.


    Thanks!

    Hi Maria,

    Our HIPAA compliant forms and HIPAA compliance system provides required safeguards to protect sensitive personal health information (PHI). Although the Australian Privacy Act is a different regulation, it states very similar requirements for protecting healthcare information. So I believe you'll benefit from HIPAA-compliant forms.
