MedWiki and MedWiki-Secure Enterprise Wikis

“Wiki wiki” means "rapidly" in the Hawaiian language. The term WIKI is a generic name for a web-page that can be editted quickly without having to learn HTML.

IRT provides MedWiki (SUNet ID required) and MedWiki-Secure (members only) for secure collaboration and document sharing with Stanford School of Medicine groups. MedWiki is powered by Confluence, a popular enterprise wiki platform from Atlassian Software.
