It is only a HIPAA violation if you are disclosing private confidential health information about a patient to a third party without their consent.
So if you are reaching out to the client directly, there is no 3rd party disclosure of any potentially confidential information and this wouldn't be a violation.
So it is not improper or illegal for you to notify former clients of your current location as long as there is not a non compete in place with the previous employer..
