You seem to want to tackle two tasks.

1- For medical filing, a macro flash will give very repeatable results, however unflattering.

2- For the web, using a shoothrough umbrella would be good with a small flash.

In the Canon world, you could use a T4i camera with an EF-S 60 Macro lens.

An MT-24 light will give you repeatable close-up results for your filing

For the Web, add a 430EXII or 580EXII flash in an umbrella as a key light.  The MT-24 will be used a a fill light.  The MT-24 is able to control wirelessly the other flash, so you will be able to adjust the ratios with it.

I think these flashes will be strong enough to override the room lighting.  If not, you will have to turn the main room lights off, in order to get decent colour and consistency.  I also guess that you will get decent colour with the flash WB setting on the camera, without needing to do a custom WB.

Whatever you end up doing, you might want to hire a local photographer familiar with the equipement your are selecting to help you setup everyting.
