    That’s great! And they only ask for an “undergraduate degree in a relevant discipline” and “HL7 certification or specific training”.

    And the HL7 certification is only $175:

    I was surprised to see that there are less than HL7 Certified Specialists in Canada that could be making $70 to $80 per hour (right away):

    WOW! That works out to be $145,600 – $166,400 per year (assuming 40 hour work week). Sadly it’s in Edmonton!
