    It is possible to use JotForm in a HIPAA compliant way. Please see this thread, http://www.jotform.com/answers/4728-Are-form-submissions-HIPPA-compliant 

    If handling the process of releasing medical records is a part of your job description, you understand how stressful it can actually be. Although it seems simple enough in theory, strict patient confidentiality laws, like the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), make it hard for medical administrators and professionals to feel completely confident in their ability to transmit private healthcare information (PHI) in a way that is secure, and HIPAA-compliant. Fortunately, this struggle can be overcome when you have a thorough grasp on which considerations must be made when releasing medical records.

    A proper HIPAA authorization form will feature a valid date range for releasing medical records. A patient may elect to permit a third-party source to request and obtain his or her medical records within a specific window of time, or your facility may include a clause on the form that only enables the form to remain valid for a "period not to exceed" one year, six months, etc.
