Regarding HIPAA, can you recommend a list of books and/or Web sites that have assisted you in acquiring your knowledge
There are many good HIPAA resources on the Internet; some of them are just difficult to find. Check out the following Web sites for starters:

Principle Logic's HIPAA resources

A good mailing list to subscribe to is called HIPAA Weekly Advisor. You can sign up at hcPro.
