Abstract

Handhelds and smart Personal Digital Assistants' (PDAs) use and applications have been growing exponentially. Their mobility and increasing computing power have made them attractive for use in daily life. Many electronic applications on such devices have been developed for healthcare and life sciences. Educational use for medical and health profession students have been suggested. [1] The goal of this paper is to overview three examples of how handhelds and PDAs are used in a healthcare context. This article combines three review articles published at Mobile Medical Computing Online journal.
