Who’s Using PDAs? Estimates of PDA Use by Health Care Providers: A Systematic Review of Surveys

Journal of Medical Internet Research - Who’s Using PDAs? Estimates of PDA Use by Health Care Providers: A Systematic Review of Surveys

This review which has recently been published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research reports a review of PDA use amongst healthcare providers.

The authors Chantelle Garritty and Khaled El Emam identified 23 relevant surveys, 15 of which were derived from peer-reviewed journals. This cohort of surveys was published between 2000 and 2005. Overall, since 1999, there is clear evidence of an increasing trend in PDA use. The current overall adoption rate for individual professional use ranges between 45% and 85%, indicating high but somewhat variable adoption, primarily among physicians.
