Great HIPAA article by Ross Armstrong in ComputerWorld written from a record-handling and storage POV:

Securing access to stored information — as well as ensuring data availability — puts considerable pressure on health care IT to conform to HIPAA requirements. It also presents an opportunity to establish best practices that will serve the organization for years to come.
