Top 10 HIPAA-Compliant Scheduling and Calendar Tools


Medical organizations, health insurance companies, and other healthcare companies often find themselves left behind when it comes to new technology and tools. That’s because most platforms are created with basic security features that are good enough for most companies, but not quite good enough for HIPAA. 

HIPAA, or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, was enacted in 1996 as a federal law designed to protect patient health information. Patients must give express consent or be notified of any sharing or disclosure of their personal health information, including medical records, medication history, insurance information, and other details. 

While this is great for patient privacy and protection, it makes using technology and new tools more difficult. After all, you can’t just link up an open-source tool like Calendly to your practice and start using it — at the very least, you have to choose a HIPAA-compliant platform. You should be looking for more than that, of course, such as features and tools that can make it easier to run your practice or healthcare organization. 

First, though, you’ve got to find the right platforms. Here are 10 of the best options for HIPAA-compliant scheduling and calendar resources. 

1. SimplePractice 

SimplePractice is one of the most used scheduling tools for medical practices and healthcare businesses. It includes dynamic scheduling features, along with resources for insurance and billing, documentation, and mobile access with a Client Portal for streamlined care.

SimplePractice comes with a 30-day free trial and plans start at $29 per month.
