HL7 Primer for non-techies

One of my readers wrote me today:

Shahid, I’ve been following your blog for a few months. I was wondering if you know of a HL7 primer for beginners (non-technologists)?

I figured others would want an answer to this question, so I decided to reply publicly. A very good “starter kit” for HL7 are Neotool’s Whitepapers like Why Do I Need an HL7 Interface Engine?. Definitely [register for their free HL7 Reference Guide][3], too. When you’re ready to dive in deeper, check out their “Fast15” set of webinars that give quick guidance on various integration subjects.

If anyone else has any other guidance, please drop a comment here.
