We're looking to go to an online format for all of our registration and medical forms, so I need either a software to both make the forms in and have them submitted (kind of an all-in-one solution), or just host the pdf forms where the parent can go in and fill out the form and then submit it, but it has to follow HIPAA guidelines. I hope that makes sense!
Hi Mandy. Your question makes perfect sense, and is a good one to ask.I did a quick search and found a few online form companies (including formstack, practisforms, and 123formbuilder.com) that say they offer HIPAA-compliant forms.
I also found these articles. Among other things, they advise you to require a Business Associate Agreement from the form hosting company.
Does my online form have to be HIPAA Compliant if it doesn't ask for medical information?
Are Web-Forms HIPAA Compliant?

Thank you! These seem like some great options...I'm definitely going to look into these.
Building the forms is only the first step. Fillable PDF forms are great because the information is legible, you can require fields, collect digital dignatures and most of all the data can then be transferred to your system to eliminate data entry.
