AbstractNo study has investigated the current state and potential impact of using infectious disease management systems in the Gulf Region. In this paper, we aim to investigatethe current published literature to identify the studies and the potential impact of these technologies on improving infectious disease management. This study reviews the published papers (1975-2014) using a systematic approach. This entails searchingpeer-reviewed articles in both English (PubMed, Web of Science, and IEEE Xplorer) and Arabic (Al Manhal, Mandumah, and AskZad) electronic databases using the following terms: "infectious diseases", "e-health", "infectious diseases management systems", and country name. We analysed 96 English articles and 68 Arabic articles. No studies met the inclusion criteria. In conclusion, there is a need to conduct extensive research in this region, such as designing asystem based on the needs of infectious patients as well as relevant social phenomena.
