Using HTTP-EQUIV to refresh a page

A patient enters a tele-health kiosk and fills out the an online InfoPath privacy form presented the kiosk computer. They submit the form, and the form shows a thank-you page as it alerts a nurse to begin an interactive session. When the session is closed, a new form automatically appears the browser window ready for the next patient session.

Using an HTTP-EQUIV meta tag is a simple way to automate this thank-you and form refresh process. The InfoPath form’s meta tag just needs to contain an &Source reference back to the original page. For example:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns="" >
		<meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="5; url=">
		<title>HIPAA Acknowledgement and Authorization for Treatment Success</title>
		<style type="text/css">
			body {
			.note {
				font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
			.thanks {
				margin-top: 300px;
				font-size: 24px;
			.note {
				font-size: 14px;
		<div class="thanks">Thank you.</div><br/>
		<div class="note">Your form has been sent, and the appointment will begin soon.</div>
