Hello, can someone recommend some HIPPA training / seminar for IT compliance?

I want to learn what is consider compliant and what is not in regards to email, fax, security, operating systems (e.g. Win XP), etc..  

I want to clearly articulate to my clients what is compliant and what is NOT so that I can be informative and also make sure I don't have any liability if they decide not to address IT issues.

Can anyone recommend anything?

Hello David, thank you for the link.  I am trying to figure out how I can provide my client's a "sure" way of being specific to being HIPAA compliant when it comes to technology/IT.

The whole things seems very vague and a lot of miss information.  For example, I have a dentist in the area that will not fax me an invoice for my son because of HIPAA compliance.  That is their policy and they are sticking to it.   I don't believe faxing a document is an issue. I do respect the dentist and it is his decision to keep that policy or not.  However, it makes me wonder if I should advise my clients in faxing is NOT HIPAA compliant.  

Note the front desk lady at the dentist office will use the excuse of HIPAA but I am pretty sure this is not the case.  Then again, I want to be sure what I am recommending to my clients is accurate and true.

In addition, as and EXAMPLE, I want to keep out of any liability issues.  If I tell my clients it is ok to fax, and they do and get in trouble because of it I don't want to be held liable.

Bottom line is that I want to be educated in HIPAA to know what I am saying is correct and that I can provide recommendations to my clients and warn them of risks.

Again, I appreciate your link but it does not completely address what I have asked.
