Perhaps you could point your in-house folks to my papers in the Journal
of Medical Informatics, ACM publications, and other professional
journals showing my use of Perl in major projects at Columbia
University, the College of Physicians and Surgeons, and
Columbia-Presbyterian hospital in the early-mid 90s. We were using Perl
for medical curriculum and clinical systems that were all very large
projects. And that was all before CPAN was the mega-resource it is now
(we started with 4.019) so the possibilities for Perl in large projects
is even greater now.
I was the coordinator of Internet development and online curriculum at
Columbia University's Center for Academic Information Technology and
lead developer on all the projects listed below and therefore I know
first hand that Perl was the central IT tool in each of them. If it
would help for me to talk to some of your colleagues in person about
Perl in Medical Informatics, I'd be glad to.
