Hipaa compliant database

Last Modified: 2012-06-21

We have a SQL database that needs to be HIPAA compliant. Users access the database through an encrypted website.

I do not have experience with HIPAA and I was wondering if somebody can give me some tips on how to ensure that the application is compliant.

The database is running on a W2K3 server, SQL 2000(soon to be upgraded to 2005/2008). The website can be accessed only through https and it has a thawte certificate for authentication.

Thank you for your help!
