I'm going to plug this job a bit from the technology side. The folks at Stanley Healthcare are doing some jaw-droppingly cool work with real-time tracking of patients, staff, equipment and materials. At a Boston Tableau User Group meeting they did some demos of what they are up to and where they want to go and it's a really great use of technology to improve the quality of care, save money for healthcare systems, and actually save lives. I was explaining what Stanley is working on to the infection prevention nurses I work with and they were awestruck at what the technology could do to help prevent outbreaks of hospital-acquired infections. If you want to do good doing good work with brand new technology, this could be a great job.

I only wish I'd gotten (was able to hear) this bit of advice earlier in my career. Please listen to what Jonathan is saying; it will change your life.
