Best place to start for HIPPA compliance would be with their site:  http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/administrative/securityrule/securityruleguidance.html

As for the security of laptops that go home, I work at a financial institution that has similar requirements and we use Sophos Safeguard Easy for FDE (Full Disk Encryption), It comes with their Enterprise license.
