This work presents a deep and broad Systematic Literature Review (SLR) to select studies demonstrating current EA practices in healthcare systems. The researchers established an SLR protocol returning 280 primary studies after the first step of the Data Selection and a consolidated inclusion of 46 articles after the second step. They assessed the level of disagreement during the team's evaluations using Cohen's Kappa. This SLR revealed essential aspects of state-of-the-art EA application in healthcare systems, such as the most used methodologies and tools, best practices, and criteria considered for their choice. It also analyzed the main positive impacts, challenges, and critical success factors described by the studies' authors based on empirical approaches. Besides, this work brings the main publication channels and the most influential authors on the topic of EA in Healthcare systems.
