Good day,
Here is the most compact form of the integral,
due to Dr. Andreas Dieckmann, who e-mailed me
he used "transformations (17.4.3), (17.4.11)
and (17.4.15) given in Abramowitz/Stegun" :
4*EllipticK[(4*b*Sqrt[a^2 + z^2])/(b + Sqrt[a^2 + z^2])^2]/(b + Sqrt
[a^2 + z^2])

p.s. I'm a bit disappointed FullSimplify couldn't do the same...
