HIPAA Compliance introduces a high level of standard for protecting sensitive healthcare data. Together with HITECH, it defines a framework for managing and securing ePHI (electronic protected health information).
HIPAA Compliance is not a choice and required by law. Any kind of data breach on protected health information may result in HIPAA violations. And 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) that are filling online forms and sharing their health information and medical history. Knowing the entity who is collecting their healthcare information is HIPAA Compliant will make them feel safer. That is the reason for showing JotForm HIPAA Compliance badge on the forms hosted in JotForm HIPAA Compliant accounts.
