The Use of Tablet Technology by Older Adults in Health Care Settings-Is It Effective and Satisfying? A Systematic Review and Meta Analysis



The Use of Tablet Technology by Older Adults in Health Care Settings-Is It Effective and Satisfying? A Systematic Review and Meta Analysis



Clinical Gerontologist 2017: 1-10



This systematic review/meta-analysis examines the potential for older people to accept and use tablet technology in clinical settings by assessing satisfaction and effectiveness. A comprehensive literature search was conducted of PubMed, SCOPUS, and CINAHL through March 2017. Inclusion criteria included studies with any clinical use of a tablet technology with a median patient age above 65 years. We included a total of 12 studies (4 randomized controlled trials, 4 cross-sectional studies, and 4 pre/post studies). Interventions included the use of tablet technology for medication self-management, post-surgery education, memory retention, cognitive rehabilitation, and exercise promotion. The use of tablet technology by older people in clinical settings was associated with high satisfaction with a pooled prevalence of satisfaction of 78%; 95% CI 27-100. We did not find evidence for effectiveness in improving clinical or behavioral outcomes. Older people can use and are satisfied with table technology in clinical settings. More studies are needed to evaluate the effectiveness of tablet technology at promoting health outcomes. Clinicians should be encouraged to utilize tablet technology in the care of older patients.
