A client who we have uses Stata to run a profile resulting from patient
surveys. The client would like to make the whole process more automated
and web-based such that the patients input their answers to survey
instruments, the resulting data is fed into Stata, and Stata outputs the
info in a form that we can use to provide feedback to the patients about
their profiles.

We are pretty adept at using ASP and ColdFusion technologies. Is Stata
up to the task of processing the data we create from the original survey
and feeding it back to a CF or ASP page to provide feedback?

Thanks for any leads or example sites.

In addition to the lead Nick Cox sent you, please have a look at a simple application we have to run analyses on the web using Stata:

http://www.cpc.unc.edu/projects/dapr/da/clap/csection/csection_dhs/index.html

We use a simple Perl script to pass parameters from an html page to Stata, invoke Stata, and return the results to html. We have Stata read an existing data file and vary only the analyses being performed. You could easily adapt this to have Stata read an ascii file of responses from a patient and return their responses to an html page for them to review.

See log2html, tabout, and cb2html for sample ado files that return Stata results in html format. Let me know if you would like more information.
