Mixed reality (MR) give users a virtual three-dimensional representation of real objects embedded into the physical surroundings. Microsoft HoloLens and Google Glass are examples of MR devices that demonstrate the most prominent emerging technologies recently. This study presents a review of MR in healthcare. Literature related to the use of MR in healthcare were collected from the top A∗ and A journals in e-health management-focused and e-health clinical-focused. We found that majority of the research used VR and very few used MR in healthcare-related studies. While research in the space of MR in healthcare is nascent or relatively immature, there is clear evidence that further research is warranted.
