This review provides an overview of the literature on a broad range of tablet-based healthcare applications in hospital care settings. Most of the systems described are either in their development stage or simulation stage but not actually implemented in the hospital care (exceptions to systems conducted clinical trials). Further focused research is required in such applications with respect to their clinical implementation, end-user acceptability, evaluation by medical professionals and security and privacy.
