I plan to host a service on AWS to assist medical professionals. For resilience I plan to distribute this service over multiple availability zones.
I understand that HIPPA constrains the geographical location where patient data can be held, depending on the area of residence of the
patient.

Could you shed light on how I can stay clear of HIPPA violations in standing up such a service?

Regards

Rohan

I'm not an expert for HIPPA. But have you tried https://aws.amazon.com/compliance/ as a starting point for your questions? Also try to contact the AWS sales or support team. I experienced a lot of support from AWS whenever I needed to comply with special requirements.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
