How to Remove the HIPAA Compliance Badge on Your Forms

October 5, 2023

HIPAA compliance introduces a high level of standard for protecting sensitive healthcare data. Together with HITECH, it defines a framework for managing and securing electronically protected health information (ePHI).

HIPAA compliance is not a choice and is required by law. Any kind of data breach on protected health information may result in HIPAA violations. HIPAA violations may result in strong penalties on Covered Entities. Jotform HIPAA compliance helps Covered Entities to avoid those penalties.

HIPAA compliance is also crucial for end-users, like patients, who are filling out online forms and sharing their health information and medical history. Knowing their information is protected by HIPAA regulations will make them feel safer. That is the reason for showing the Jotform HIPAA compliance badge on the forms hosted in Jotform HIPAA accounts.

Below, you can see what the badge looks like on forms that enable HIPAA compliance:
