Q: Can I add medical forms to my website for patients to fill out?
A: Yes, Online forms can be added at any time.
There are two types of forms that can be added. The first is a simple .PDF form which does not have to be encrypted. The patient would download the form off of the website and print it out. They will be able to bring it with them to their visit or fax it to the office at anytime.
The second type of form is an actual online form which allows the patient to fill out the form online and submit it by simply clicking a button. If this form contains information regulated by HIPAA compliancy, the information must be encrypted and stored in a secure database which the medical staff will login securely and view the information. A record is kept showing who and when the patients information was viewed.
