In this paper, we present an overview of grid computing, examine the potential uses for grid computing in healthcare environments, and propose a decision framework for healthcare information systems in large healthcare organizations. The proposed framework extends the Enterprise Desktop Grid architecture to allow healthcare systems to validate whether a grid computing system is an appropriate choice for their system, and to enhance decision making regarding the architecture of such a grid.
