Logging Activity within an Application

In order to be HIPAA compliant, should all activity that occurs with in an app be logged, or should activity that exceeds the normal threshold be logged? For instance, users that access information in the application routinely during the course of their work day will evince a regular level of activity. The activity will indicate routine access of sensitive information. Should the log contain all of the users activity, or should the app only log excess access to sensitive information?
