Hitting the ground running: Healthgrid deployment and adoption.

Author information

I-THINK Research, Lawson Health Research Institute, Canada.


We consider the issues of healthgrid development, deployment and adoption in health care and research environments. While healthgrid technology could be deployed to support advanced medical research, we are not seeing its wide adoption. Understanding why this technology is not being exploited is one purpose of this paper. We do so in light of the seminal Healthgrid White Paper and the SHARE roadmap. We also address barriers to adoption and successes by presenting experiences in North America and Europe. By critically appraising where we are, we hope that we can hit the ground running in the near future.
