As some (maybe many) of us are aware, the Healthcare IT site will be shutting down in the very near future.
The folks over there have identified some questions we might be able to give a home to, so I'm submitting them here for a (hopefully) quick consensus.
Question 1: What are some benefits and challenges to the application of cloud computing in healthcare environments?
Basically a typical cloud computing question, but with a slant toward talking about requirements specific to the healthcare industry (HIPAA-style confidentiality laws and such)
I think there's enough interesting information here that it's worth preserving, even if it's not our typical on-topic question.
Question 2: Is it necessary to run a webserver to attain CCHIT certification
This one seems a little niche, I find it interesting personally but that's probably because I'm half-in the healthcare industry these days.
Question 3: setting up PACSone server, web viewer, and uploader
I think we would normally whack this one as a shopping question -- I'm not sure there's really an answer that's not either a list of products or "Sorry, you probably need to talk to the vendor/write it yourself"
Out of the three do we like any enough to give them a home (either "alive" or "locked for historical reasons"?)
