You can now combine these integrations with Formstack’s online HIPAA forms to enhance patient acquisition, simplify your paper filing systems, and eliminate manual data entry. Read on for a breakdown of everything you need to know about each integration.


In modern healthcare, the patient experience is paramount. As a care provider, you need to ensure that patients have a positive experience with your organization, from the first time they explore your services to the moment they walk out of their final appointment. Formstack’s HIPAA compliant Salesforce integration can help you improve the patient journey by letting you safely pass lead data and ePHI to your Salesforce account. Generate more healthcare leads for your facility and seamlessly manage contacts throughout the patient onboarding processall while maintaining HIPAA data security standards and your peace of mind.

Let’s face it. As much as you would like to, your organization can’t be entirely paper-free. There is still a need for paperwork in healthcare, but you can simplify your paper-based processes by connecting online forms to your facility’s filing system. With Formstack’s HIPAA compliant WebMerge integration, you can quickly collect ePHI and other sensitive healthcare information online, safely pass it to your WebMerge account, and create professionally formatted PDF documents that you can print out for your office. Use these documents to collect legally binding signatures from your patients and upload them into your healthcare system.

Scheduling appointments for patients can be frustrating, especially if you’re handling appointment requests through the phone or over countless email threads. Formstack’s Google Calendar integration eliminates this frustration by letting you collect ePHI and send it to your Google Calendar to automatically set up appointments, meetings, and other events. Manage doctor and nurse schedules more efficiently, schedule appointments faster, and improve overall patient satisfaction.
