I just wanted to bump this post.

It is the best guide on Scoundrel/Operative healing I have found to date and it is still very relevant.

WARNING: This guide is very outdated and I've learned a lot about healing since it was written. There have also been several changes with the inclusion of new relics and new boss mechanics. I suggest you read another guide, while some of this information is still useful, Classicks's guide is very good and some of the other guides in this forum.

http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=716417 is the one by Classicks. I use a little of both. I learned from this guide, but Classicks has good points as well (though I use UWM significantly less and run higher crit). Good to read over both guides and see what works for you.

Made a few changes to the guide including changing the wording on some things and adding notes from learning more as I go along. I also removed a lot of references to parsing because I have decided that parsing is a poor way of measuring healing ability.

Added some information where I used Inovisible's spreadsheet model to prove that 462 critical rating is ideal if you have 470 surge.

I've released a model for PVE Scoundrel healing (link in my signature). It confirms the recommendations of the OP regarding stats. For example, it shows that optimal Critical is 400+ for a typical PVE Scoundrel healer with high-end gear, and that having less is fine.

My model is more advanced than, and has two significant advantages over, Inovisible's.
  1. By personalizing the data on worksheet "Boss Fights", you can tailor stats for your healing. Not every Scoundrel has the same rotation, assignment, or co-healer.
  2. My model analyzes the effect of gear on your EHPS rather than on a single, fixed rotation's HPS. Since having 100% effectiveness is rare, and maintaining a single, fixed rotation is rare, my model is more practical and less academic.
