    Hi,

    is there a way to use HIPAA-compliant forms that and comply with European GDPR at the same time? I am asking because if I choose HIPAA-compliance, I am forced to store data in the US.


    Thanks for your help,


    Henry

    Hello Henry - You were right. HIPAA data are being stored on US Servers. Unfortunately, you cannot enable HIPAA and GDPR at the same time.

    With HIPAA Compliance, we have introduced additional safeguards to better protect healthcare data and they will probably cover the requirements of those national standards in the EU zone.

    Moreover, GDPR compliance (which is common for EU zone) have already introduced personal data protection standards including healthcare data.
