Here are detailed steps for integrating HIPAAtizer with Practice Fusion using the HIPAAtizer Chrome Extension. This process allows direct import of form submission data into Practice Fusion’s Electronic Health Records system, facilitating the creation of new patient profiles and attachment of PDF intake forms.

With HIPAAtizer, you can create Patient Intake Forms, tests and Questionnaires for your practice and integrate them with Practice Fusion. This integration enhances the management of patient intake forms on Practice Fusion, maintaining HIPAA Compliance throughout the process.

Starting from your HIPAAtizer dashboard, follow the steps below.

  1. Configure a form’s settings in HIPAAtizer:

1.1 Navigate to the My Forms page.

1.2 Select the specific form you wish to integrate and click on its Form Settings

2. Enable the integration for the chosen form with Practice Fusion:

2.1 Click on the Integrations tab on the left to display all the integrations, then choose Practice Fusion.

2.2 Activate the integration by checking the Enable box. This will reveal form fields for configuration

3. Link the HIPAAtizer Form’s Fields to the Practice Fusion Patient Chart Fields:

3.1 When linking the HIPAAtizer form’s fields to the fields in the Patient Chart in Practice Fusion, please note that some fields are required and some are optional . The required fields are “First Name”, “Last Name”, “Sex”, “Date of Birth”, “Mobile” and “Email”.  The other fields are optional.

Important! When building a form in HIPAAtizer, you must use the specific component (i.e. text field for a name, email component for emails, phone number component for phone numbers, etc. to ensure that the data is integrated correctly with the Practice Fusion Patient Chart).
