Performance Issue

We have run the test script from Kitware on numerous machines and continue to see hang up issues from remote sites.  There is a growing list of postings bad mouthing the site due to poor performance.   We don't see the hang up issues or the performance issues from here and can't correlate the hang data with any activity on our end.  I am open to suggestions on how to make progress on this front and do it quickly.

This might help keep tabs on things that are "ultra private because they're shady operations."

As far as OSEHRA becoming a silent depository for "inappropriate content," could we track these averages:

'Open Source' Personal Health Record (PHR) System

I have been a long time fan and supporter of the My HealtheVet PHR.  It is a great tool, an innovative addition to VistA that was needed to better connect and serve our veterans/patients.  What bothered me was not the functionality, but the extensive use of commercial software packages and vendors to create this solution.  This would be a great area to consider moving to a true open source PHR solution.  There are several out there.  One solution is the My HealtheMountaineer (also known as
