Wow..

That's a really difficult question to answer because there are many many options and it depends on many things. It's sort of like asking which girl should I marry?

The truth is that if you are properly motivated, you will be happy and productive with nearly any platform. (Girls, too, but that's a separate discussion.)

The first step is to ask yourself what your strengths are. If you are a fantastic programmer in php, I would start with a php-based framework. If you are madly in love with vb.net, then you should go to an ASP.NET model. My current favorite framework (which only beta released) is meteor, which is all javascript and node.js

After you have answered that, the next question is to ask what you want your site to do. What sort of database do you want to interact with. Do you have any constraints at all? Are you stuck with a particular OS? Are you stuck with a particular EHR framework? Perhaps there is an API that you have to use which will constrain you.

All that being said, you should probably go with ruby on rails. (just kidding)
